Byron Bank is #FLyah

  
 
Byron Jones (born July 15), better known by stage name Byron Bank, is an American Rapper. Bank born in the southeast Houston neighborhood, started rapping at the age of fifteen. Due in part to being the only man in the household, Bank witnessing his mother's struggle as a single parent; using his mother's pain as motivation. Bank learns to play the trumpet and drums in the high school band, however with the encouragement of his grandmother who purchased his first ever keyboard workstation Byron found his true love producing music. Byron knew music was his future and felt he had something special to share with the world.
  
The rapper/producer/songwriter/ honing his skills as a songwriter creating hooks for his beats, Bank stepped up his lyrical repertoire with full length and completed songs. Finally having the first opportunity to showcase his talent Byron join Hip Hop group Uppa Dek. As the "hottest thing on the street" at the time Bank’s began to see his own reflection and passion grew inside him to venture out on his on. Byron's uncompromising work ethic would not allow him to rest on his more than impressive laurels; there needed to be a 'visual' movement to showcase his innovative style and unique persona.
2010 continued to be phenomenal for the young MC. Having released his (free to the public) freshmen mixtape album Catch Me If You Can on January 22st via the internet, bucking the norm of waiting for a major label deal to kick off his career, the rapper has taken his fate in to his own hands and crafted an internet campaign that rivals many of the acts resting high on the Billboard charts. His Internet game is just as tight as his rap game.
Byron Bank has opened up for Mega Superstar Chris Brown on the Scream Tour (Woodland TX); Miami Car Show during Super Bowl XLVI weekend. He has also opened up for Devin the Dude and Coughee Brothers to name a few. As well as perform for over 20 major Houston’s Community Benefit events. The stage is now set for Byron to put his new Houston flavor on the map with the newest mixtape "The Withdrawal" is led by the cuts Scandalous Girl, The Weekend & Love N Regrets. These are record of my life said Byron. Bank’s is definitely rockin' to his own beat.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play?
