Emerging Artist

Baltimore rapper Tate Kobang (#29) got his name on the board last year with Bank Rolls (Remix), his rework of a classic street track in his hometown, Tim Trees’ Bank Roll, which came out back in 2000. The song simmered online for a while before starting to rack up online plays and regional radio airplay, and thus more attention…including that of 300 Entertainment’s heavyweights Lyor Cohen and Kevin Lyles. Now on a roster that includes Fetty Wap, Young Thug, and Migos and part of a spate of Baltimore signees to various national labels, Tate Kobang has all the firepower he needs to make a jump.

Bank Rolls made it onto the Urban radio chart over the winter, racking up 13,000 spins to date, and now Oh My is on deck. On his 24th birthday last month he released the Lord of da Trenches mixtape which is getting solid reviews online. He’ll appear live at Pigeons and Planes’ No Ceilings show in New York on 5/18 and Summer Jam ’16 in Greensboro, NC on 7/16…expect to see more radio shows and other appearances added in short order.
