His name: Just call him Robb Bank$ or Tumblr God for now. And if you wanna know his age, you'll have to listen to his debut mixtape, Calendars, to find out..

The son of Jamaican parents, Bank$ was born in Brooklyn and moved to Coral Springs when he was 7 years old. He didn't come up gangbanging and packing heat, and his songs don't bother to tell fake gangsta stories. "It wasn't like I was in and out of jail or some shit," he says. "I would never lie about that shit. It is what it is."

Originally meant to be an EP, Calendars was released in mid-February after multiple setbacks. Yet despite those delays, his second mixtape, YOTS (an acronym for Year of the Savage) is set to drop later this year. At the moment, there isn't an official release date. But patience and quality, Bank$ says, override the need to immediately release another project.

"I'm learning you can't really put out good quality if you keep pushing yourself," Bank$ explains. "You need to let yourself take time. And I'm trying to take time." Lee Castro
