Endemic Emerald, Skanks the Rap Marty and Daddie Notch pay homage in ‘Legends Live Forever’ video.
New video lifted from the Rapsploitation album by Endemic Emerald & Skanks the Rap Martyr. Legends live forever is a touching tribute to NYC basketball Legend James “Stixx” Williams. Williams, known to everyone as Stixx, was 6-foot-8, blessed with a lean frame and a sweet lefty stroke, and he scored easily enough on more than one N.B.A. star in the cityâ€™s summer leagues.
â€œIt was family and basketball: I donâ€™t think he cared for anything else,â€ said his wife, Ranate Williams who gives a heartfelt intro to the video. Stixx was a mentor to dozens of young black basketball players in New York, friend to N.B.A. stars like the Chicago Bullsâ€™ Taj Gibson and to troubled teenagers in the juvenile detention centre where he worked as a counsellor. Featured in the cut is Daddie Notch, cousin to Stixx and member of Bankai Fam.
