The Texas rap star Erica Banks started 2021 with a lot of momentum and hype after her hit single “Buss It” became popular on social platforms such as Triller and TikTok.

In a recent interview for Twitch streamer Clinton Sparks' “Big Win” podcast, Erica Banks reveals the initial success of “Buss It” caused her mother to step in and put a swift halt to potential record deals with rappers DaBaby and major labels names like Atlantic and Capitol Records.

“Atlantic was one, Capitol was one — actually, DaBaby the artist the DaBaby, yeah he was the second person to reach out.” Erica Banks said while explaining how her first offers rolled in.

“So I did not sign with DaBaby because — now let me say this before I tell you that I was very excited, it was my second offer. I was like, ‘Hell yeah,’ I was about to get on the plane and go. But then I called my mom like, ‘This what I’m about to do, I’m about to sign with DaBaby,’ She’s like, ‘Oh no, we need to slow down, this is only the second offer we’re not going to just jump on whatever comes.’ I’m like, ‘Oh whatever, mama, you don’t know what you’re talking about.'”

Banks went on to explain how after the initial excitement settled down, she eventually came to a mutual agreement with her mother that it was essential not to take the first offers received because “You might get something that you or that fits you better you know,” and says she is glad she decided because it led to her partnership deal with the notorious Warner Records and the independent label “1501 Certified”.

“We love DaBaby. I appreciate him so much,” Erica Banks said. “At the same time, he’s an artist just like me, you know what I’m saying, so I just had to think about that too.”

Banks continued by saying how she feels like she made the right move.

“I felt like me continuing to be an independent artist at that particular time because 1501 [1501 Certified] is independent, I wanted an independent label. I felt like that was best for me and what I desired at that time in my life.
