Jiggin’ on em’ Carlton Banks
Corey Lee knows how to take an idea and make it not only his own, but morph it into something unique and true to his roots. His latest single, “Carlton Banks,” does just that. Using this idea, he takes the Fresh Prince’s sidekick ‘Carlton Banks,’ a goofy, sweater-wearing dude and makes him go from dorky to G in less than 2 and a half minutes. According to Lee, this anthem represents Philadelphia to the fullest. And as a native, Lee incorporates one of the most well known characters from west Philadelphia into his latest single with much success.
This record takes you on a ride, a bouncy southern style beat with east coast rhythm & a swagger that you can only find in the city of Philadelphia. With consistent lyrics and an undeniable flow, “Carlton Banks,” is a solid follow up to Lee’s “Cam Newton.”
With a co-sign from Sonny Digital, Lee has since received attention from major producers like Cardo Got Wings & Sap co-signs as well as rising figure YesJulz (Julz Goddard) placing the record on her infamous “New Music Monday’s” playlist.
