As was reported in Al Shipley's extensive piece for The Fader magazine on Tate Kobang, "Bank Rolls" is a remake of Tim Trees' 2000 record of the same title. While the original gets the edge as the true classic, Kobang's cover has taken off, keeping Kobang busy booking shows and blanketing Baltimore radio. The song's bass-heavy beat was produced by B-More club legend Rod Lee, and, according to Shipley, the original hadn't left local radio since it was released a decade and a half ago; the new version, a hookless freestyle a la "Hot Nigga," may now have a shot at wider success, thanks in part to investment from Lyor Cohen and Todd Moscowitz's 300 label.
