Reviews Spank Rock and Benny Blanco Bangers & Cash

Spank Rock and Benny Blanco

Bangers & Cash

The latest effort from Baltimore club/DJ/rapping outfit Spank Rock brings more to the table than one might think. The opening line, “Welcome to the fuck shop,” gives you an idea of what you’re in store for. Bangers & Cash is five tracks of sex and money, with Spank Rock rapper Naeem Juwan dominating the lyrical space. This is also two steps away from looking like a 2 Live Crew remix album; four of the songs have beats or samples of the late rap group. Although you hear a more mainstream radio rap sound and much less of the hipster/electronic-touched sound of last year’s YoYoYoYoYo, I have a feeling these songs are meant to be this over-the-top. The extremely unsuspecting Amanda Blank lends her words on “Loose,” almost easing your guilt for the misogynistic themes of this EP. Since it’s only five tracks, most people might pass over this release, but every song is good enough to make this worth it.
