Guystone Menga (born 12 April 1996), known professionally as Yxng Bane (pronounced "young bane"), is a British rapper, singer and songwriter from Canning Town, East London.[2]

Early life[edit]

Menga grew up in Custom House, an industrial district of East London's Canning Town neighborhood.[3] His mother is Congolese and his father is Angolan.[4] He has five siblings and attended Eastlea Community School in Canning Town and later attended college in Grays, Essex.

Career[edit]

Yxng Bane started his musical career in 2015, by uploading songs onto his SoundCloud account.[5] In January 2016, he released his debut EP, Full Moon.[6] In January 2017, Bane was featured on a remix of Ed Sheeran's hit single "Shape of You".[5] In June 2017, he was featured on the single "Bestie" by rapper Yungen, which peaked at number 10 on the UK Singles Chart.[7]

Artistry[edit]

Bane has cited Michael Jackson, Drake, Future, PartyNextDoor, 50 Cent, Tinie Tempah and Wizkid as his influences.[5] While talking about his musical style in an interview with Billboard, he said; "In terms of music and artistry, I'm an artist who doesn't belong to a genre. I express myself however I need to express myself. Whether I need to rap about it or sing about it, however I need to deliver the message, it will be delivered. In terms of genre, I think – no, it's not "I think." I know I don't belong to any genre because, for example, I'll do the "Rihanna," which is a slow, afroswing vibe and then I go and do "Froze," which is more the trap sound – more U.K. drill sound. So it's more about however I need to express it rather than belonging to a genre. It's more – I'm diverse."[8]
