Skanks the Rap Martyr – Burn it Down (ft. U.G.) (Video)

Skanks unleashes some block brutality with the help of U.G. for his new single, Burn It Down. When you listen to The Rap Martyr get on a tear, it becomes quite apparent that you don’t want to be in the way of this man’s path. He will shame you out of existence with these bars. And this production is nice, not sure who is behind it, but the vocal sample rounds it all together nicely.

Don’t forget to peep the new album, M.O.S.T (Minister of Severe Torture).

P General – Hard Hittin’ (Video)

You can not go wrong with the Bankai Fam! That’s a team that embodies what HHD is all about. And P General represents that. You’ve got some dark instrumentation to compliment the hypeness of the track. The flow is deliberate and concise, making sure you catch every point. The produciton comes from Abraham Lilson, and you can find this joint on the General’s recently released, Spawned From Legends.

Skanks the Rap Martyr – Legend of The Eyepatch (Video)

Whooooooo! Yep….Skanks is back with some heat again…and you are going to want to stand by the furnace and warm up because he constantly laces dope sixteens with incomparable bravado and talent. He can be your hero, or your worst nightmare depending on where you stand…I would prefer to be the former. Legend Of The Eyepatch is real and it’s coming in full force once his new album, M.O.S.T., drops…you’ve been warned.

G Stats x Raf Almighty x Rawmatik – The Ruler Gods (Feat. Ras Kass & DJ Sonnykraft) (Video)

G-Stats (Bankai Fam) , Raf Almighty (Dirt Platoon), and producer Rawmatik are The Ruler Gods and they just dropped a project today which you can find digitally…everywhere. On this, the title track, they join forces with the legend Ras Kass. I love coming across something dope and unexpected, and this is exactly that. I am definitely going to have to cop the project.

Note:

I waited for this album for three plus years from Alpha Faktion. Their EP, Truth, Lies, & Audiotape is a staple in a very crowded iTunes Library. So when Azwun, Kraze, and DJ Enyoutee finally dropped their new project, Creative Control my expectations were extraordinarily high. But this is what the team did in the process of making this album while I waited anxiously: They made something that was timeless.

Note:

If I understand the story correctly, producer Endemic Emerald and emcee Skanks The Rap Martyr of Bankai Fam met each four years ago in NYC and there began a mutual respect for each other’s talents. This album, Rapsploitation, is culmination of that admiration and it is us, the fans that reap the benefit.

Single You Out: Endemic Emerald & Skanks – Straight out da NYC (ft. Rim and Shatike)

This is another single from Endemic Emerald and Skanks’ forthcoming album, Rapsploitation. I love the static and pop in the production with that lingering piano loop from Endemic. Skanks adds the perfect verbal punch needed to the track. And of course dopeness loves company, so Rim and Shatike, also show capable of serving up some certified illness.

The album is due out on May 30th.
