Stank’s Bio

Stank is not supposed to be alive. “My mother’s tubes were tied when she had me,” the East St. Louis rapper says. “I’m blessed and happy to be here. I’m my mother’s blessing.”But that blessing was soon tainted, as Stank grew up idolizing his father, who ran the streets. Stank’s father didn’t want him to follow in his footsteps, but the message didn’t get through. “I was attracted to the streets, although my father was trying to push me away from it,” Stank says today. “But, he never got a chance because I was addicted to the example he set for me.”Stank went down the same path, but just as his father changed his life by becoming a respected minister and a successful businessman with a construction company, Stank redirected his life’s trajectory by turning his life over to music after seeing a string of his friends fall victim to violence and incarceration.

Growing up in East St. Louis, Illinois (just East of St. Louis, Missouri and on the other side of the Mississippi river), Stank gravitated to the soulful yet gangster music of 8 Ball & MJG, UGK, Bone thugs-n- harmony and Scarface. Their songs provided a respite from the rugged streets of his hometown. “That was medicine for me, my therapy,” Stank says. “It got me through my troubles, situations that I was in. It was more than just a dance, a feel- good thing. You could learn lessons in life. People actually showed you how to get away from some of the nonsense you’d run into. “With his explosive debut album, Welcome To East Stank Louis, Stank plans to emerge as rap’s next therapeutic storyteller as he puts his city on the map. The album title turns both tricks. “It was catchy to me because my name is Stank and the Stank Louis part just goes so well with it,” Stank reveals. “I’m a big factor in my hood and everything I stand for and speak about is East St. Louis. I’m bringing East Stank and East St. Louis to the world.”Growing up in East St. Louis, Illinois (just East of St. Louis, Missouri and on the other side of the Mississippi river), Stank gravitated to the soulful yet gangster music of 8 Ball & MJG, UGK, Bone thugs-n- harmony and Scarface.
