002..¬†How did you meet each other and how and when did you create¬†BANKAI¬†FAM ?
Bankai¬†Fam all know each other from the same neiborhood growing up in crown heights brooklyn¬†bankai¬†was created by Kyo and Skanks and Skanks was introduced to Kyo by Ruste Juxx..//Skanks,Gstats,Cash Bilz,Top Notch,Gangsta,Phenom,Low Banga,El Gee,Pgeneral,Bigbizness¬†BK Crown Heights¬†Produced By Jupiter¬†A.K.A(Astronote,Kyo Itachi,Azaia)¬†Performed by All Bankai Fam 10 members Espada¬†Ep Vinyl out June 2013 (Watch the “On My Side” below)
003..Where name come from ?¬†BANKAI¬†FAM¬†As far as the name is concerned its pretty deep but not too complicated. The “bankai” is actually a weapon. A sword to be specific(iF I got my facts strait). Originated from a japanese animae series called bleach. Its pretty dope u should check it out if u get a chance. But you know. Lyrics and your craft pretty much equals your sword.
004..Any project coming up? Together or solo?After the¬†Bankai¬†e.p prod entirely by Jupiter A.K.A. Skanks dropping the shinigamie flowfessional album due this fall then Gstats solo then the¬†bankai¬†album then the invasion begins look for the whole crew to be dropping projects.

005..Dj`s,Beat Makers,Producers .What kind of technical equipment using the make¬†BANKAI`s tracks?
Technique would provide the sound that our love for this art can give out so at the end it’s reall just unity that’s the skill used.
¬†006..Who are your heroes (MC,Dj,Procucers,Beat Makers) in the hip Hop movement and Why?
First off I got to say Kool herc for pioneering this hip hop movement but its too many to name it was alot of greats growing up who influenced¬†bankai¬†Fam.
¬†007..What do you think or how do you think back for those days? “Golden Era” ¬†I mean 90`s and early 2000.
The 90′s early 2000′s was the best everybody expressed the art from their hearts it was bullshit then too but it was ballanced out real hip hop co existed on the radio with the commercial bull shit now its just the commercial bullshit playing on the radio these days.

008..Questions for dj`s..What do you think about the dj`s situation? I mean Serato or Records..
Records this serato shit got any body thinking they can be a d.j but remember hip hop started out with just 2 turntables and a mic.
009…So where can fans learn more about¬†BANKAI¬†FAM and Producers previous or upcoming album and collaborations.
This collective of MC’s respective bodies of work are growing so rapidly you never know who’s doing what. I aint seen the entire OCB or P.General in some months but I guarantee that some wild idea has been formed. Its that real creatively. I’m just tryna keep up with the crew lyrically. One step backward and that can throw off a lot.
