Shaun Banks Blows-Up on Latest Release "Pi$tols and Palmtree$"



Shaun Banks is no pushover to the residency of corruption entangled within the police force. On "Pi$tols and Palmtree$," he illustrates the injustices surrounding the 5-0 in Los Angeles, sequestering his rap soothsayer comrades— Mar and Wallie the Sensei— for the feature.


The accompanying video production masquerades like the title sequence to a post-apocalyptic-block-buster before reclining its top-hood for the summer vibes that radiate throughout this track. Amongst his clique in the backdrop, Mar drops the hook with effortless flow, "watching for the police," as he builds over the words, "riding with the homies, through the blocks they patrolling." As the single evolves over the pulsating 808 thunderings below, 32nd note hi-hat scatterings induce a drooping head-swaying flow, while the squad transitions between L.A. side streets to boardwalks, and twilight meanderings in the whip.


Before we know it, Shaun Banks imposes his curve on the track with a verse that bolsters the comfort he has in his wordsmithing and dripped out vibe. "Bet I shoot like Kobe...doing what it takes to get my ass out the streets," he flourishes, arms swinging as he vibes out in front of his open door Tesla Model X. Proportionally important to the tracks magic though is, Shaun Banks, who imparts his scripture-like lyrical incantations with a whistful and tribe-like cantor for his stanza. "We move real pivotal, one hand on our genitals," he struts as his clique surrounds him, "when you try and find balance, the - will come challenging," erupting before the closing sprays, "we can make it a battle and I'ma let em have it." As the sun sets over the backdrop of the homogenous vibes found throughout "Pi$tols and Palmtree$," Shaun Banks and his clique never struggle to confide in their rap constructs and ultra-smooth flow.
