PREMIERE: Show Banga “Can’t Stand Me” ft. Kool John

“This record is real bass heavy [and] got a hyphy Bay vibe to it. I’m explaining how I can’t stand a broke female and they can’t stand me. I made this for all the females that didn’t give me play before but wanna give me play now that I’m making some noise & shining.”

Sometimes the artist is the best person to summarize his/her own song. Show Banga did just that for his latest single “Can’t Stand Me.” Fellow Bay Area native Kool John also shares the sentiment of having too many girls on his line now that he’s making some paper. “Can’t Stand Me” will be on Show’s upcoming Show Time 2 album (8/12). Show Time was also his father’s name–something you might know if you were from the Bay Area. Show Time owned and ran indie music stores and the energy drink, Hunid Racks, that was popular during the hyphy era.

Show Banga told us the following about the connection he felt with his father and keeping his name in good standing:

“My relationship with my dad has always been good. Through him, I was able to see how to be entrepreneurial; he taught me how to do things on your own. When I got older though, I didn’t want to ride his wave. I wanted to form my own relationships with DJ’s, radio people. I wanted to build it on my own. It was good that I was able to get game from him and get that hustle mind-frame from him. That’s what I’m doing now–I’m building my own network, my own brand.

In his era of the 2000’s, he had a lot to do with the music culture of the city of San Francisco. He gets props for all the plays he made for people like Messy Marv, San Quinn, The Jacka. They they all made money together. They respected him because he was also looking out for the young artists in the Bay. I’m proud of my father’s contributions and that’s why I do projects with his name on them. It’s because of him that I know a lot about being an entrepreneur and having your own business, getting out there, and grinding to sell anything.”
