NOBI is a 21-year-old up-and-coming rapper and model from Ohio. Not too long ago, he released a boomin’ rap tune, entitled, “Bands Up”, featuring Rico Nasty.

“I got no slaves I bought me a whip. I was on tour and I got me a grip. You was at home you was hating, admit it. I don’t know why they get mad that I did it.” – lyrics

‘Bands Up’ tells an intriguing tale of a young guy who realizes that finding success and acquiring money is a gift and a curse.

Apparently, a few of his friends aren’t too happy about him leveling up above them. Therefore, they throw shade his way instead of congratulating him on his accomplishments.

‘Bands Up’ contains a relatable storyline, reality raps, and playful instrumentation flavored with hip-hop and trap elements.
