Skanks and Endemic Emerald are doing their part as artists to address the brutality that is plaguing the United States currently as we hear of countless stories where police are acting indiscriminately with deadly force in the black community.
What I like about this video is that it was done with a lot of thought and the message remains prevalent throughout the music.
This is a video single from the collaborative project, Rapsploitation.
Endemic unleashes a bluesy and soulful production for Skanks’ thoughtful phrases as it regards to the ‘trouble’ that surrounds him. He references the violence against the black community, the loss of his childhood heroes, Hulk Hogan and Bill Cosby, and the perception that Black Lives Matter is somehow a racist propaganda. He really goes in on this one.
The two have a collaborative album in the works, Rapsploitation, dropping in February 2016. So check back for more information. I am sure there will be more coming.
It’s only one verse but Copywrite reflect on the troubles he’s seen while Surock is taking the congregation to church with a piano laced production and a sample of a church choir. The latter half of the track is completely instrumental but dope nonetheless.
This is taken from their yet to be released collaborative affair, Choose Your Own Adventure: Murderland. I don’t think this release has a date as of yet. We will keep you posted.
Red Eye delivers some of the toughest lines and I would take his bars over 90% of the competition. This track, Trouble, is just another fine example of what the man is capable of. It’s a Nemesis produced banger that can be found off of his Fatrick Ewing project which will hopefully be out soon.
New joint from the emcee Cyrano Sinatra and producer Centric. Trouble features guest rhymes from Skyzoo and Trife. Centric lends a banging, yet slightly funky, production to cover all the auditory bases. Sounds dope by all my standards. Sinatra and Centric have a collaborative project dropping, Back 2 Lyfe. As of yet, there is no said date.
