I’m a sucker for branding. If you package something shiny in front of me, and put a fancy sticker or logo on it, I’ll most likely buy it. With that being said, when I see something that includes “Def”, I automatically associate it with good Hip Hop. That is definitely the case with the group Def Bananas.
Hailing from New Jersey, Def Bananas is composed of Kam Dela Coopsta VII (the producer), GQ (lyricist), and Mr. Lugo (lyricist). According to their website, they’ve been at this for about five years.
Five years is enough time for any group to develop their own sound, which is definitely the case for Def Bananas. They bring that alternative sound to hip hop that everyone craves when they need a break from the norm.
The title of their new single is appropriately titled, “Something New”. It’s got a boom bap feel to it, but with a refreshing twist. If you’re a fan of east coast hip hop, then you’ll like this cut. They completely switch it up on their latest track, “Fish Tank”. Anytime you got lyricists who can switch up their flow on each track, then you’ve got a good artist you’re listening to. Check out their Soundcloud, and check out their video for “Something New”, above.
