Who is Bane? The young recording artist is originally from Tallahassee, Florida. Part of what has established Bane in the underground hip hop scene is his diverse subject matter. His sincere, heartfelt lyrics scream authenticity, an increasingly uncommon quality in the hip-hop genre.
Since 2001, the lyrical phenom has released ten underground compilations as an independent artist, establishing himself as a notable presence in the Southeast. With an impressive track-record of mixtapes and compliations, the young aritst plans to release his first solo independent project, Exile, fall of 2014.
Its no secret that Bane is a non-conformist. His anti-industry sound is a direct result of his values and morals which stem from his faith in Jesus Christ. By promoting celibacy, sobreity, faithfulness and righteousness in his lyrics, Bane's content is the extreme opposite of what is commonly heard from radio-friendly, mainstream artists. Through faith and originality, Bane hopes to set a new standard in hip hop, one that has a positive influence on its listeners.
Kloak'd is not an alternate persona, nor is it meant to serve as an alias. Kloak'd was conceived as a Christ-like state of mind. It implies that Bane is transparent in his music and that, through his songs and lyrics, Jesus Christ is the one to be recognized and glorified. Bane often states in his music that he is "Kloak'd," meaning he is invisible or cloaked in the presence of God's eternal glory. It declares that he is unworthy of any praise or credit that is given him because his abilities are not truly his own, he is merely a steward of the talents God has blessed him with. The ultimate meaning of Kloak'd is to die to one's self and be reborn through the blood and eternal sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
