It’s been a good week for fans of Robb Bank$. The Florida rapper was featured alongside Denzel Curry, Curtis Williams and Sir Michael Rocks on the highly awaited remix of SDontBraddy’s “Can’t Tell Me Sh*t,” which impacted earlier this week, and tonight he’s back with a new music video. The song receiving the visual treatment is his Nuri-produced cut “On Me,” from his mixtape Tha City. In addition to the video release, Noisey caught up with Bank$ for a pretty telling interview. Watch the “On Me” video up above, and read a few excerpts from the interview below.
On his relationship with his father:
Speaking of criticism, you’ve recieved a lot for how people percieve your relationship with your dad. How do you feel about the way that’s been discussed online?
If I was in their position, I’d see it like this, too. Shaggy’s son is out here rappin’ about this, that, blah, blah, blah. But at the end of the day they don’t know me. He did not raise me. Me and his relationship is not the best relationship. We’re workin’ on it. We’re tryin’ to get shit back. Well, not back ’cause it never was. But we’re tryin’ to get shit to a level where it’s all love, and we could all just be good. You know what I’m sayin’? I was raised by my mom in Florida. You know, I was raised right here in Coral Springs.
How often would you see him?
Just once a year, every time. And I could never knock him. He always took care of his family. But I was so oblivious to the whole situation because I didn’t even know why I was leavin’ New York. But it was because my mom and my dad—I’m not gonna put their business out. But obviously, they had some issues. And my mom wanted to be closer to my aunt. Keep the family close-knit. I wanted to know where my dad was at that point. Anybody who I saw that was like, man, he’s doin’ it. I saw them as like a big brother because I’m the oldest of four kids.
