Drank In My Cup – Kirko Bangz: NEW MUSIC

Kirko Bangz the 22 year old rapper is sipping – but do you like the taste of his “Drank In My Cup?”

Okay so to my US readers Kirko Bangz “Drank In My Cup” ain’t nothin’ new.

However, to my Aussie tail – Mr Bangz and his “drank” are. On my trip to the United States last month I heard this song consistently on rotate on the airwaves in Dallas, Texas. I’m talking every third damn song.

At first listen I swore black and blue it was Drake. To my surprise it was a cat named Kirko Bangz aka H-Town – and less of a surprise was that he was Texan native, Houston to be exact.

In a fact finding mission I sought to find out more about the brotha – according to Wikipedia:

Bangz started rapping at the age of 15, due in part to witnessing his mother struggle as a single parent; using his mother’s pain as motivation for his music. He attends Prairie View A&M University and is majoring in mass communications. At Prairie View he was able to focus on his music, and in 2009 he released his first mixtape Procrastination Kills. He stole the attention of a fellow student and now manager D Will.

Chart Success

He recently released a mixtape entitled The Progression 2: A Young Texas Playa.  I’ve listened to the thirteen track long mixtape and I enjoyed it despite the majority of the tracks being instrumentals of Drake songs and other hit tracks such as “So Gone (What My Mind Says)” (link to review) by Jill Scott. No points for originality, but props for appeal.

His second single entitled “Drank In My Cup” was released on September 16, 2011. During the week of February 25, 2012, the single debuted at number ninety-six on the Billboard Hot 100 however as at 20 March 2012 it is sitting at #10 on the Rap Billboard charts.



I loved “Drank In My Cup” from the first time I heard it. Granted I was thinking to myself “yesssss Drizzy get it!” while trying to guide my Mum through the nightmare of Dallas freeways. Who would ever believe piling freeways on top of one another was a good idea?!

In a nutshell Kirko lets us know that he likes a girl that’s involved with someone else & he feels she can do better than the man she’s currently with by kickin’ it with him. It’s a very chilled out track that I can’t stop playing, the beat is so addictive – like nearly all of Drake’s music.

His voice and tone is almost identical to that of Drake’s and it is rumoured that Drake actually took his sound from Kirko.

Unfortunately Kirko hasn’t got the exposure and household name that Drake does (except for in Texas and in the South) so people will tend to compare him – and potentially label him as the Drake copycat.

“Drank In My Cup”

Kirko Bangz

[Verse 1]
I done came down, hold up
Grip the grain, roll up
And your girlfriend want a n*gga like me
Cause I ain’t tryin’ to control her
She call me when she wants a change
Black diamond, my pinky ring
And she know you weak and we ain’t the same
You hit the scene, I make the scene
I’m in her head like Maybelline
H-Town so I’m made for lean
I’m in her soul, I make her scream
I don’t ride the toll, don’t pay the change
I’m EZ tag like Peter Pan
She want a man, don’t need a man
I’m flying down your boulevard
She cookin’ dinner with your pans
Draped up, dripped out
Your b*tch know what I’m taking ’bout
Pulls up, pull out
We get it poppin’ in the parking lot
She like to do it with the lights on
Don’t matter to me if it’s dark or not
I’m G’d up, East up
Fossil pants, I’m hard as rock

Girl I know how much you really want somebody
Want somebody that don’t really need you
Girl I know how much you really want somebody
Want somebody that ain’t trying to keep
You heard what I said, that could put you to bed
That ain’t tryin’ to love you baby, just f*ck you instead
And don’t tell ’em nothing baby, you know that I’m comin’ baby
Just hit up my phone whenever you need you some company
Got this drank in my cup, oh yeah
I got this drank in my cup
I got this drank in my cup, cup, cup

[Verse 2]
I done came down, came up
Slow pitch, change up
Same hood, same style, same drink, same cup
She call me when she wanna f*ck
I never call, she knows what’s up
Same page, same book, different song, same hook
Everytime her n*gga trippin’, she on the phone with the same crook
And everytime I pull up, she hit me with that same look
Lips bitin’, hips right
She left her man for that get right
I’m in the middle, like midnight
Only if you got that sit tight
Only if you got that wine fine
Only if you got that sip type
Only if you got that mine bomb
Only if you got that sip type
Eat that s*it like wonton
Jokin’ baby, I’m pimp tight
I’m used to bein’ that one and done
But girl you got that g-get right


H-Town, oh yeah, I got this drink in my cup
I got this drink in my cup
I came down, hold up, hold up, I said hold up
Hold up, I done came down like hold up
Hold up, hold up, f*ck, ‘chea
