Endemic Emerald & Skanks the Rap Martyr are back and joined by Daddie Notch, also a member of Bankai Fam, for a new video once again lifted from the Rapsploitation album. Legends Live Forever is a touching tribute to NYC Basketball legend James ”Stixx” Williams, a cousin of Daddie Notch. Known for a height of 6-foot-8, a lean frame and a sweet lefty stroke, Stixx easily scored and on more than N.B.A star in the city’s summer leagues. Ranate Williams, Stixx’s wife appears in the intro to the video, and speaking about him, she says “It was family and basketball: I don’t think he cared for anything else”. Stixx was also a mentor to dozens of young black Basketball players in New York, and a friend to N.B.A stars such as the Chicago Bulls’ Taj Gibson, and to trobuled teenagers in the juvenile detention centre where he worked as a counsellor.
Rhyming over a haunting Hip Hop beat produced by Endemic, the rappers reflect on the memories shared and the times they spent with Stixx, speaking on the good he did in the community, his passion for Basketball and his skills. The music video splices lip-synced scenes, in a Basketball court, with some footage of Stixx himself.
