MC Spank Rock:
"One of my biggest fears is that someone's going to attach some stupid name to what I'm doing, not realizing that it's hip-hop, and it shouldn't have to have a new name just because it's creative."
Naeem Juwan better known as MC Spank Rock, MC Super Disco Spank Ro’ or just Spank Rock is a sex-obsessed raunchy lyricist with sharp wit and a diverse taste in music. Yoyoyoyo! which was released earlier this year and has been all over the blogs is a fantastic record. It wasn't until my recent trip to Chicago that I was really able to get into the album and listen to it a bunch of times.
Spank along with fellow Baltimore native Alex Epton (a.k.a. producer Armani XXXchange), have created a distinct sound on Yoyoyoyo. A sound where hip-hop meets pop, punk, and the electronic scenes of Miami bass and Baltimore dance beats. Here are a couple rare cuts off some a couple of singles along with my favorite Spank Rock track Backyard Betty (listener beware).
