HANif (FKA Luck-One ) teams up with fellow Portland rapper/producer Tope for this solid hard-hitting jam titled “Bankstrip.” With Tope behind the boards, he brings out a lush heavy trap vibe that fits HANif’s calm but edgy flow.
“Bankstrip” is taken from the duo’s surprise EP No Clout which is available only on Bandcamp. The project was produced by Tope with Anthony Danza contributing to one song “LLC.”
As two trailblazers in the Portland Hip Hop scene both TOPE and HANiF took time away from music and relocating to Oakland and New York respectively. Connecting while back in Portland the basis of HANiF’s No Clout EP was essentially laid in one studio session with TOPE playing beat after beat and HANiF inspired to eat up every track coming his way.
