Rap's Rising Stars
Erica Banks, a rising star in the Texas rap scene, has gained significant popularity since 2020. Her breakout single, "Buss It," went viral on social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok, catapulting her to success.
In the same year, she inked a deal with 1501 Certified Entertainment, a Houston-based record label owned by former MLB All-Star, Carl Crawford. Adding to her achievements, Erica released the highly anticipated "Buss It" remix featuring Travis Scott in 2021.
Interestingly, it appears that Erica Banks may now find herself aligned with Megan Thee Stallion in her ongoing battle against their shared label, 1501 Certified. Fans have picked up on a snippet of a new song where Erica indirectly criticizes a label for its greediness and claims they owe her money. While there is a possibility of another label being involved or Erica having issues with Warner Records, her complaint strongly resembles Megan's grievances with 1501. This connection has sparked speculation and added fuel to the fire.
If indeed Erica Banks is taking shots at 1501, this aligns with Megan's previous claims about the label's unfair treatment. Since Tory Lanez was convicted of shooting Megan in 2020, she has been vocal about the unjust terms of her deal with 1501. Megan has fought legal battles against the label, accusing them of hiding money after obtaining restraining orders that allowed her to release new music.
Furthermore, if the rumored tension between Erica Banks and 1501 proves to be true, it could potentially bring the two rappers closer together. Fans have long awaited a collaboration between the two artists, especially since the "Buss It" challenge took the internet by storm. This development could be a step closer to making that collaboration a reality.
