25-year-old New York emcee Elijah Bank$y’s final summer pack for hip-hop fans of all generations is his third original album FROM ME 222 YOU (FM222U).
The art of Banksy’s sound throughout these nine tracks, deeply inspired by the recent trauma of losing his father and learning to navigate healthy relationships, proves to be timeless as some songs were recorded in Bank$y’s 22nd year. The energy of each of the 9-tracks on FM222U elevates Elijah Bank$y’s heavy lyricism to new heights. Fans of his last album will find more wise-man-raps that strike a chord for a generation born into struggle, which found its voice in the community.
FM222U embodies Elijah Bank$y’s characterization of manhood, without dodging the vulnerable expressions of humanity. On the title track, “FROM ME 222 YOU”, Elijah Bank$y sets the tone with emotional intelligence that invites listeners to reflect on the measure of a man through the trials of great loss, developing romance, and the growing dependency of family & friends.
