#Banggang is an album by Cedar Rapids hip hop act Big Bang DBT. This marks Big Bang DBT’s 3rd official group album following “We Are Big Bang” and “The Bangover”.
Fans of the group will hear their signature sound on the title track “#Banggang” and “Bounce.” “Stress Reliever” & “Single” brings the R&B touchs fans are familiar with the group
The group is unlike many in the Iowa area, set apart by their A-List collaborations. In the past, the group has worked with Young Buck, Lil Chuckee, & even the late Nate Dogg. #Banggang is no different, and the group sounds in place on the high profile collaborations.
The Wiz Khalifa assisted “Yo Bitch Love Me” is a nice mellow entry, but members really shine with Cyhi The Prynce “B.B.G.W.” They also deliver a club banger on the Huey collaboration track as well.
“Smash-N-Dash” & “Bring Dat” highlight the album, with their bassy & lyrical combinations showing the best of the groups rap skills.
Whats different about #Banggang is the experimental tracks. The whole album is produced by their longtime producer Tony T. “Throw Yo Hands Up” could have easily been an Outkast/Organized Noize track. “Party All Night” is a rock fusion track that might make Darryl DMC grin.
At 20 tracks, the effort is long. The groups throws in new tricks, signature records, and the eclectic mix of club/R&B infused songs. The outcome assures that there really is something for everyone on this album, while not alienating the growing fan-base.
The Verdict: 4.5/5
While not a picture perfect effort, it’s clear to see Big Bang DBT is #1, and the best is yet to come.
