Spank Rock & Amanda Blank’s “Assassin” Puts a Hit out on the Dance Floor
Spank Rock’s new is all siren and snare, just what we needed.
How has nobody spelled "A-s-s-a-s-s-i-n" out loud over a hook before? On his latest lightening storm of a single, Spank Rock is dropping bars and punching air with the same abandon that gained him icon status among alt-rap's early guard: Cause I'm a Mac bitch, these niggas IBM, I make ghetto bass rap club and IDM, he spits over electric Baltimore bounce co-crafted by Kid Kamillion and Boys Noize. Amanda Blank dances on a pool table and crowns herself ratchet, but the Jesse Miller-Gordon-directed black & white clip betrays high-mind.
