Tate Kobang has an infectious personality that makes it hard not to love. He is known in Baltimore and beyond for his ability to nimbly navigate a beat. Doing justice to a karaoke classic with his auto-tuned bars, Tate Kobang stunts at a photo shoot in Stop The World,” his latest video single. The track samples the 1985 masterpiece “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” by Tears For Fears. Moreover, the song’s producers, FaxOnly and BNYX® of WorkingOnDying, keep much of its rhythmic trickery intact. “Stop The World” finds the Rostrum Records signee in a romantic mood as he skates atop the shuffle beat and declares his love for his woman: “For you baby, I will stop the world”.

In the video, TateKo has the time of his life at a photo shoot. Like always, he is doing his dance with video vixens and showing off his trophy collection. Directed by Trent Munson, the video is a showcase of Tate’s cheeky charisma. This explains why he’s one of the most notable stars in the DMV rap scene. The new record was released in May, and received praise by The Washington Post. They said the song “shows his playful spirit and willingness to try different forms” and “the hook’s lullaby structure will make it nearly impossible to not have “Stop the World” planted in your mind during — and after — listening,” “Stop The World’ was Tate’s first new solo song of the year, following “Pink M&Ms,” a collaboration with fellow Baltimore native Lor Sosa.

Tate Kobang Has One Of The Best Pen’s In The Game

Tate Kobang broke out in a big way in 2015 when he released “Bank Rolls (Remix)“. The song is a new version of Tim Trees’ Baltimore classic “Bank Roll,” named one of the best songs of the year by PitchforkNPR, and Pigeons & Planes. Since then, Tate has done his part to elevate the rap scene in his hometown and the greater DMV. Kobang is known for following his muse into a variety of rap styles and collaborating with artists like K CAMP. He’s now a go-to producer, recently making the beat for “Fractions,” a single from Nicki Minaj’s recent album. Now signed to Rostrum Records, TateKo is looking to stop the world with his talent, and prepare for his imminent re-emergence as a major voice in rap today.
