New Music: Endemic Emerald & Skanks the Rap Martyr ‘Trouble’


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.
