New Music : Endemic Emerald & Skanks — Prison riot [Ft. Ruste Juxx & Kasim Allah]

Endem­ic Emer­ald & Skanks the Rap Mar­tyr present their col­lab­or­a­tion album opus entitled Rapsploit­a­tion. 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”

Skanks is a found­ing mem­ber of Brooklyn’s Bankai Fam who released their debut, On my side, in 2013 & has also released an influ­en­tial solo LP on French label; Shinigami records. At age twelve he was known as Prob­lem Child & opened up for MC Lyte on numer­ous US tours, gain­ing accol­ades from many of the 90’s legends.

Pro­du­cer Endem­ic Emer­ald has released two instal­ments of his Ter­min­al Ill­ness series along with albums on Duck­down Records & EMI, while work­ing with Mem­bers from the Wu tang Clan, Boot Camp click, Ill Bill, Sky­zoo, Immor­tal Tech­nique, Roy­al Flush & Roc Mar­ciano. Endem­ic added: “Skanks is one of my closest people in NYC, this album encap­su­lates the nat­ur­al record­ing pro­cess which is miss­ing in many albums & songs these days.”

Rapsploit­a­tion show­cases Skanks as his finest deliv­er­ing lyr­ics with sub­stance over a diverse sound set from Endem­ic. Fea­tured appear­ances come from Shabaam Sah­deeq, Ruste Juxx, Tragedy Khadafi, Mic Handz, DJ Ready Cee & Bankai Fam. The Album drops May 30th via No Cure Records / IDC.
