Atypical in every facet, Banjee Report First Edition provides an account of the elusive complexities that surpass gimmick and stereotype. Challenging aspects of both hip-hop and queer culture, the tape presents the unique point of view of its MCs and their musical inspirations, a far cry from your quintessential Queer-Rap compilation.
Banjee Report, made up of aCeb00mbaP, Mister Wallace, and 1WO [wuhn-too], honed its sound over the past year to concoct a spacey, lyrical, and philosophical mixtape. Each track has a significant purpose. MYD and Slic, Slicky tackle what it takes to survive in the real world. Living Official and Underdogs explore what it takes to make it in the rap world. Triangulum Australe transcends this world, as we know it. And Running grounds the trio in the world of their inspirational roots.
This is…Banjee Report First Edition.
Get into her.
Banjee Report began at Wang’s Gentlemen’s Lounge in Chicago, IL. Anthony Pabey aka aCeb00mbaP, and Drew Steckelmann aka 1WO founded the weekly party in September 2011. Banjee Report’s original focus was to provide a space for queer people to explore new music from a perspective grounded in an appreciation of hip-hop. In May of 2012, Erik Wallace aka Mr. Wallace joined Banjee Report as the host of the party’s newest addition, a live-recorded podcast.
The group’s dynamic naturally evolved into performance, both during and outside the party, as the concept of a Banjee Report mixtape took shape. The podcast provides an online presence that grows through relationships formed on Tumblr, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
In recent months, Banjee Report has finished its second season of podcasts, performed at Cobra Lounge and Berlin Nightclub in Chicago, and completed its first mixtape, Banjee Report First Edition available for download at DatPiff.
