The only chance the world has to rid itself of overwhelming American Hip Hop is in this man. Don't take word for it. Look up his website download the free evidence of him; What this means in reality is that 2 Ban will actively encourage people to bootleg his material, heck, he'll even supply the cover artwork if you want. Any head who wants to make a few beans can get up and sell 2 Ban's stuff - keeping the revenue for themselves.
He has produced a thought-provoking offering, and he has a lot to say. It is refreshing to hear from someone who is taking their responsibilities as a role model and educator as well as entertainer seriously. There are some very serious messages on here, the real education if you choose it to be, however it is presented in an accessible way (lowlife.fsnet.
2Ban also does video art and we received a DVD with image and video collages to their tracks, and the result is unlike anything we saw from a hip hop artist yet - 2Ban touches on a lot of topics that would make other conscious emcees feel like going back to the library. This is the Open Source version of releases. You can copy, sell and redistribute the albums as many times as you wish as long as you mention the original author 2BAN.
These albums are richly packed with African historical jewels for your mind. I can't help but think that these are the kinds of albums that everybody needs to give a listen to, if only for the history lesson. (africanhiphop.com)
2Ban deserves props and respect alone for the amount of tracks they've recorded showcasing their Genre of music "Roots Hip-hop" recorded from 2002 to 2004.The mc spits some serious deep lyrics dealing with a whole load of issues that people face in life. If you want to listen to some deep positive hip-hop about real issues then these albums are really worth checking out. If you want to check out hip-hop that's different from anything out there at the moment then you need to pick up "Roots Hip-hop" from a very talented Mc/songwriter named 2ban.
2ban is a real mc who speaks upon real issues and isn't influenced by the commercial money hungry blinged-out sound that's been polluting hip-hop recently.
