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.
Skanks can go toe to toe with ANY emcee in the game currently! His bars are tough as nails but have this intricate quality that sounds anything but basic. I mean, the way he launches and finishes that Covid line is verified proof of lyrical talent. This is also an artist that I feel just keeps getting better and better. He invites another verified wordsmith in RIM to share the limelight and he too knows how to spit some viciousness. The Last Composer does a beautiful job re-working a sample a last heard Marco Polo use many years ago. The cascading piano and the drums with that sample sound like perfection.
Definitely check out out the full length, Out Of Nowhere, now. Every song bangs just as hard as this one. You don’t want to miss out.

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.
