Nowadays in an oversaturated music industry, it seems like new artists are popping up left and right… but it’s the ones who create from the heart that makes a lasting imprint. Insert Bankrol Hayden, who creates his own version of “pain”music in a way that audiences all around the world can relate to.
At only 20 years old, the rising star has been to hell and back, and he documents it in his music. In 2017, a 16-year-old Bankrol endured a near fatal car accident in his hometown of Modesto, resulting in a broken back, broken ribs, and an injury on his small intestines. Thankfully, music would be his saving grace.
In 2018, Bankrol unleashed his viral single “29,” which reminds fans that “pain is temporary.” Soon after, he released hit singles “Costa Rica,” “Brothers,” and “Cabo.”
Fast forward to 2021, the singer/rapper inks his new deal with Atlantic Records, recently opening for 24kgoldn on his headlining tour. His most recent release is “Come Through,” tapping another fan favorite Lil Tecca.
