16 year-old Stefan James returns with Bands On Me, his first release since his Hypewriter-featured debut mixtape, KROWNING.
On Detroit rapper Stefan James‘ first effort, KROWNING, we were introduced to a young – yet refined – artist who’d found a comfortable footing within intoxicating instrumentals, charged with critically red-lining 808s and snappy percussion. At such a young age, he already effortlessly oozed with enough youthful confidence and artistic competence to keep up with the sounds of a myriad of talented producers, while additionally demonstrating his ability to write capable, energetic and catchy songs.
His latest single, Bands On Me, serves as continued emphasis on the potential he showed on his first mixtape. James spits aggressive and menacing bars over a dreary, nocturnal banger propelled by a haunting piano line and distant wails, before hallmarking the track with a woozy and infectious hook.
