In New York Hip Hop, there are certain landmark years where the culture is shifted, and an entire new wave begins. Think Nas hitting the scene in 1994 or 50 dropping in ’03. In 2012, a quieter, though equally important revolution was happening in the city: The New New York movement. Squads like The Underachievers, Flatbush Zombies and Bodega Bamz were popping up across the five boroughs. Right in the center of that wave was Remy Banks and the crew which he is a part of, World’s Fair. The group’s diversity has been on display ever since, and Remy is one of the most underrated artists in the city.
“I personally can say this, with confidence too, we helped change the climate of NY rap,”
“I’ve learned how to deal with people on a wider scale since I’ve been familiar with so many different cultures growing up.”
