Kirk Jerel Randle (born August 20, 1989), better known by his stage name Kirko Bangz, is an American rapper and singer signed to Atlantic Records. Bangz started rapping at the age of fifteen, due in part to witnessing his mother struggle as a single parent; using his mother’s pain as motivation. He is best known for his single, “Drank In My Cup” which was released in 2011 and peaked at number 28 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. Kirko Bangz was born in East Houston, Texas. He graduated from North Shore High School in Houston and would later go on to attend Prairie View A&M University where he would major in communications.
At Prairie View Kirko Bangz was able to focus on his music, and in 2009 he released his first mixtape Procrastination Kills. He got the attention of a fellow student and now manager D Will. Bangz released his first official single titled “What Yo Name Iz?” on February 7, 2011. His first major hit actually began as a freestyle. It has since peaked at number forty-one on the chart. A remix was released on June 24, 2011 and features Big Sean, Wale and Bun B. He released a mixtape shortly after on March 1, 2011 titled Procrastination Kills 3. His second single titled “Drank In My Cup” was released on September 16, 2011. During the week of February 25, 2012, the single debuted at number 96 on the Billboard Hot 100. It has since peaked at number 28 on the chart and at number 1 on the Hot Rap Songs chart. The song spawned many remixes and freestyles featuring hip-hop artists J. Cole, 2 Chainz, Tyga, Bow Wow, Kid Ink, Chamillionaire, and singer Trey Songz.
Progression 4 includes 1 original track and 11 freestyles. With the subheader “All Freestyles“, you can pretty much guess what this mixtape will be like. It is composed pretty much entirely of freestyles, a bold move in an era where freestyling has become nearly universally deemed a dying art.
