8 Things You Didn’t Know About Yxng Bane

Part of the distinctly British movement that fuses African pop, dancehall and reggaeton, Yxng Bane is at the height of his game right now and his Friday night set at NASS is not one to be missed! But how much do you really know about this East London rapper?


He chose the name Yxng Bane after the villain Bane in Batman (although he’s never actually seen the movies)


The first album that he ever bought was 50 Cent’s 'Get Rich or Die Tryin'

Thank you to the team who helped with the production, getting the whole night sorted. Thank you to all those who were there. Thank you to everyone who is part of this journey with me and that has helped the boy come this far and you must know you have changed his life. I don’t know how to tell you lot how much love I have for you on the real because I never would’ve imagined this. I know it’s a deal, and I know we have a long way to go, but I just wanna say thank you man. Thank you, last night was emotional. I love you man...FOREVER.
