Houston rapper Rocky Banks is not interested in holding on to relationships that don't align with his present focus. He's very candid about that fact on "Hi And Bye," his latest Daud Leon-produced single. On the track, Banks explores his singing abilities while still rapping with his assertive flow. His lyrics talk about the pressure he faces as a rising artist, and all the time he doesn't have to waste on people who aren't helping him progress.

"Hi And Bye" isn't just a song, though—it's a how he really feels. "Everything in this song was put in there with intent to serve as a prelude to the very short conversations I am about to have with people," Rocky explained to The FADER over an email. "I know some will get offended, and I know some will be surprised." It's better to rip the Band-Aid off quick, right?
