Endemic Emerald & Skanks the Rap Martyr present their collaboration album opus entitled Rapsploitation. “Trouble” is the project’s lead single which portrays tales of US police taking innocent black lives. Skanks breaks down his frustration with the recent events while another Crown Heights O.G – Eric E‑Class Wright intensifies the track with his vocals on the hook. Producer Endemic first met Skanks in Brooklyn mid-2013 when he first touched down in NYC. The duo built on the Nostrand Ave blocks & started to work instantly as they shared a similar stance on hip hop. Skanks stated: “I first rocked on Endemic’s beats on the Ruste Juxx Adamantine project which he produced for Duckdown Records, so I knew a joint project would be Ill. Working with him also allowed me to sharpen my skills as an engineer & I recorded material for G Stats & Bankai Fam after we built a studio on my block in Crown Heights”
Rapsploitation showcases Skanks as his finest delivering lyrics with substance over a diverse sound set from Endemic Emerald. Featured appearances come from Shabaam Sadeeq, Ruste Juxx, Tragedy Khadafi, Mic Handz, DJ Ready Cee & Bankai Fam. Album drops soon via No Cure Records / IDC.
