Passing through all the trials and tribulations of life, Banchie (Real Name: Antone William Hampton Jr.) remains to stand tall and rise above the average MC…And that’s hard to do in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After losing most of his childhood friends in the streets, he dedicated most of his life on making it on the music scene. He grew up a very rebellious and cantankerous child. Due to being an outcast from others, he mostly stayed alone isolating himself away from people. His early childhood years was pretty much normal. It was not until his teenager years when he started getting into trouble. Alot of people assume that he calls himself “Banchie” cause of the bike but as it turns out to be it’s for a different reason. “When I was 13 years old I started seeing ghosts, angels, demons, you know things from another realm sort of speak. I thought that I was crazy but when my brother Wise died I started seeing his spirit.” He made a new form of street poetry called “Ghostpoetry”. At the age of 10 years old he started out writing poetry then at age 14 he moved on to battle raps which he won a lot because of his unique flow but was still determined to write poetry. He grew up listening to Dmx, Nas, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Styles P (or The Lox), Beanie Sigel, and of course Tupac and Biggie. He is in a songwriting duo alongside with his best friend Jajuan “Miracolus” Allen and also has an excelling solo career. He forced all eyes to be on him when he dropped his first mixtape “Rage and discipline Pt.1”. Long after that, he has made quite an impact on the rap scene with his exceptional collection of mixtapes including “Rage & Discipline Pt.2: The Lost Boy”, “Rage & Discipline Pt.3: My Recollection”, & “Jammer Of Da Year”. In May of 2014 he released his highly anticipated project “GhostPlanet” that created quite an undeniable buzz for him over social media.
