The East London rapper is the second face of Notion 82.

From eBay searching for super villain masks to topping the Billboard chart with his rework of Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You”, London-based Yxng Bane’s rise has been warp-speed.

For Notion #82 Jonny Kaye captures Yxng Bane flexing in Adidas like you’ve never seen him before, while Tom Connick meets the man behind the mask as he tries to keep his feet on family turf in the face of rising public stature.
