Erica Banks (Warner)
2/4/21

WHAT IT IS: Dallas rapper Erica Banks had a buzzworthy 2020 following the release of her self-titled mixtape, which yielded her breakthrough track, “Buss It.” Her infectious flip of Nelly’s “Hot in Herre” took on a life of its own, kicking off the first viral TikTok trend in 2021 with the #BussItChallenge. The rising star got her start in music by morphing her poetry into raps. Now, she’s carving out her own lane in underground hip-hop.
