The PENPALS Are Pushing The Envelope


When it comes to being musically inclined, New York’s PENPALS aren’t a new trio in the recording business and has made a name for themselves. From innovative and vanguard lyrics to overall performance and style, the music’s speaking for itself. Don’t sleep on PENPALS because the musicians and entrepreneurs might just have something up there sleeve that’s purely unexpected.

Lurking somewhere in the underbelly of Brooklyn, NY are three New York natives who possess an insatiable taste for rugged beats and militant rhymes. Squires (producer), Cynic the Apache (emcee) and Rapswell (emcee) make up PENPALS – a hip hop trio that carries on the tradition of quality emceeing while pushing the envelope to keep hip hop as exhilarating of a genre as it always should be. Their foray into maintaining the genre’s status qua began with the release of their well-received debut album in June 2015.

Now a year since its release PENPALS has many projects cooked up sitting in the oven just waiting to serve up when the time is right. The upcoming releases include a collab album with Scotland producers Slipmat Brothers, Cynic the Apache solo project called Get the Gringo 2, PENPALS & Friends, and the follow up to their debut titled PENPALS 2. With all this exciting material they have coming out, their main goal’s to perform music live for as many fans at as many venues.
