Ant Banks is one of the best unknown, known producers in the Hip-Hop game. Coming from Oakland, California, Ant Banks embodied the Bay Area funk sound. From the Dangerous Crew, which featured Too $hort, Spice 1, Mhisani, and others, he has hits under his belt. He’s distinct sound created a demand for that Oaktown funk that you could only get from Banks. There were plenty of imitators, but never a quality duplication. “Livin’ The Life” is from his debut album on Jive Records Sittin’ On Somethin’ Phat.
