On his newly-released street album, Robb Bank$ bucks hip-hop tradition by repping not only his native Ft. Lauderdale, but 13 other cities worldwide—one for every song on the set.

Miami’s Spaceghostpurrp and Nuri handle production duties, cooking up a cloudy, downtempo keyboard/sample backdrop for Bank$’ languidly drawled braggadocio. UK songstress Phlo Finister brings a touch of trans-Atlantic soul to the record, lending her breathy vocals to the chorus. Like what you’re hearing? More globetrotting bangers await on Tha City, available for free streaming and download right here in The DJBooth.
