About Yung Bans

As a teenager, Yung Bans emerged during the latter half of the 2010s with melodic and understated tracks streamed in the millions, and with Playboi Carti, Smokepurpp, and Lil Skies among his collaborators. The native of metropolitan Atlanta -- specifically Union City, roughly 20 miles southwest of the state capital -- cites the likes of Lil Wayne and Chief Keef as artists whose work affected him at an impressionable age. During 2016, he started to receive attention from major outlets due to the Carti-assisted "4TSpoon" and his featured role on XXXTENTACION's "ILoveItWhenTheyRun." Toward the end of 2017, he initiated a series of self-titled EP-length releases, the second of which was highlighted by "Lonely," his most popular track to that point. A third short-form release arrived early the following year. ~ Andy Kellman
