Banks-Biz The Talented (DTM) / Bio


Andre "AJ Tymze" Banks Jr is an upcoming artist who has been writing, producing and recording Hip-Hop/Rap/R&B music for nearly 14 years. He continued to mature and progress in the world of music dramatically, which brought him to yet another fate in his destiny, he met his true love and soul-mate, Sylvia Durham, who also was deeply rooted into the dance and R&B world of music.

Andre and Sylvia fell in love instantly and got married not too long after they met. Sylvia was already using the name "Passion" as her professional name, but once married, she picked 2 new names. Later Sylvia Banks decided to reinvented herself as "Passion Tymze"! A new Rap/R&B group was born and once again Rejuvenating their names, Passion Tymze "The Divine and AJ Tymze "The talented" dubbed themselves together as being "Divine Talent" with the short aka tag of being called "DTM (Divine Talent Music)".

June 2013, the duo was recognized by Andrae "Dynamite" Rutledge. Dynamite decided after talking to AJ, to offer them a distribution deal thus bringing fate into play once again as they were signed to DPMG INTERNATIONAL as the 1st rapping and singing duo that are legally married who got signed to a record label "In history"!!!

Now the story of fate and destiny continues to be written... Divine Talent has now released their first worldwide single release under DPMG International (Record Label) entitled "Right Now" in over 300 digital stores including itunes, Google Play, Amazon, Juno, etc... and is being Distributed by Ingrooves Fontana (Distribution Company which distributes all DPMG Artist) on December 17, 2013. to add to the celebration, Divine Talent dropped their own debut mixtape as a group entitled " Divine Talent (DTM) Til Death Do Us Part: The Bonnie Nd Clyde Saga Mixtape" on datpiff.com the very same day!

Tho the duo has now dropped its 2nd mixtape, they are no longer signed and apart of DPMG International... However, they are fully managed and sponsored by Yvonne Wilcox Pen Name & and her 2 Hot 4 Airwaves Company! thus their journey continues with the worldwide release of their 2nd single, "Twerkin 8-4 (Remix) Written and Produced by AJ Tymze The talented himself and their 2nd group mixtape "Contents May Offend The Easily Offended"!

2014 also seems to mark yet another self render to the group after certain circumstances and trying to reinvent themselves again... After a little over a decade of music history, AJ has decided to "retire the alias name "Tymze"! What does this mean for the Duo? not much... It only introduces their latest solo aka's as being their official names now! Divine Talent Music members will now be known as Banks-Biz "The Talented" & Sylvie Banks "The Divine"!!! This change also brings a new Name for the business itself... Tymze-Table Vision Entertainment is now known as BanksFam Dynasty Entertainment. The Duo also is no longer managed by Yvonne Wilcox, but she has picked up their newly named label & production company under her own independent record label (Mildred Davis) as a sub-label to her own and networking partner! This has tipped the scale for DTM!!! after only about 2 months as being their own independent label, they have recorded 5 new singles!!! 3 as a group and 1 each as a solo artist! May has brought us the "Wet" single featuring TDolla, "Back Shotz" & "Hypnotic" single featuring Quez The Gardener. June will be the month that DTM will "Divide And Conquer" for a while as solo artist with their solo singles... "Feelin 2 TurnT Up" by Banks-Biz & "SylvaNDaBank" by Sylvie Banks with at least 2 more solo singles each still to come!!! It seems like this amazing duo will never fail when it comes to amazing us all...

As a little time passes, longtime family friend and also another Bed Stuy rapper TDolla whom just recently dropped his "Gas Music Volume 1" Mixtape on DatPiff has now "officially" joined the BanksFam Dynasty Entertainment label not only as an artist, but as the 1st acting "President" of the Brand!! This astounding move has brought 2 brand new singles to be distributed worldwide on June 26th called "I Be Around" & "Shawty So Fly" ft. Banks-Biz The Talented which both songs are produced by Indiana producer Blue Jones! The question with this quickly rising team is always the same... "What's Next Epic Move In Store On The Road To Greatness???"

As of August 1, 2014 BanksFam Dynasty Ent is now an official distributor for INgrooves with the help and support of networking partner and close friend Yvonne Wilcox!!! And this is the greatest achievement in their history thus far... This means that the brand is no longer a sub-label, but now they are truly a standalone independent record label with a "Distribution Deal" via INgrooves to distribute all their original music!!! Hard work and dedication slowly but surely does pay off in the long run!
