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.
Here’s a track from Local-MU12’s collective effort, Everyday People. The track features bars from Shabaam Sahdeeq and Punchline, underscored with production from The Manorail. Together they take on the Instagram era and those looking for instant fame in the game.

I am not going to start off this review by telling you how much I have been a fan of Venomous2000 over the years. That would be disingenuous. As a matter of fact, you won’t see too much music from him posted on this site since it’s inception. Honesty being the best policy, while I respected the man’s talent, I was never really “wowed” by his previous bodies of work, and I had purchased more than just a couple of projects.
Venomous2000 and Trilian just released a new album entitled The Great Ones, and let me tell you…it’s impressive! This is easily my favorite project from Venomous. His style over Trillion’s production seems so seamless. Enjoy this track!
Shabaam Sahdeeq is back with another single, this time produced by DJ Doom. And what other than complete dope you would you expect from Sahdeeq? He rides the piano infused boom bap from Doom to the fullest extent, setting us up for his next project, Tmeless: of the collection. That’s set to drop early next year.
Album: Fouls and Free Throws
- Ice Cold (ft. Juxx Diamondz)

It’s really good to hear some new sounds from the man Skeezo. And to compliment the fact that the man drops dope music, he is releasing these six songs for free. If you are not familiar with this man’s talent, now is the opportune time to study up. Skeezo’s always dropping those tough bars and his choice of production continues to be impeccable.
There are lots of great guest shots on this project as well, but no one is going to outdue the host, bet on that. Check out the tracks below:
News At 11 is a track off of DJ Ready Cee’salbum, Order 66. This track is all sorts of dope. Spit Gemz and Shabaam Sahdeeq drop all sorts of knowledge with regards to the food that we eat, socio-economics, and politics. There’s a lot of material being dropped in two sixteens over a villainous beat from Ready Cee.
Check the album!
Shabaam Sahdeeq drops another hot joint from the EP, Modern Artillery, which is out now. Big Ape putting out a production on D.I.L.L.G.A.F. that has more of a upbeat and vibrant vibe to it, the way it leads with the piano key samples. But Sahdeeq is doing anything but playful on this track. He is differentiating himself from the pack with every effort, so don’t lump him in with the pack. He is on a level all unto himself right now.
I was literally just thinking about not getting any new music from Skeezo music in a while, and look what I find in my inbox? It’s some new dopeness from him and his cohorts Shabaam Sahdeeq and Mic Handz.
This is the initial offering from his forthcoming album, Fouls and Free Throws.
Shabaam Sahdeeq’s new EP, Modern Artillery is out now and this track reflects well upon the whole project. We showcased the single back in early October and now we are treated to the video. The concept of the video is pretty dope in that you think that you are watching a family man getting his bread the legal way, and only til the very end do you understand that he’s taking the crooked path to make the ends meet. Pretty dope. Production is by Big Ape. Make sure you snag this EP.
