About Blaq Pyrates
Originally, the award winning Independent Alternative Rock/Pop/Hip Hop/Soul group, Blaq Pyrates, was known as the Trapville Pyrates and was founded by Fetty Cash aka Zodoq Banks, in 2003.
It included his 2 brothers DaRuddOne aka Rasta Rudd & Primo Dollars the Blaq God aka Marty MacFly, along with devoted cousin Koolgi Kid. In 2007, due to the negative use of the word “trapping” and the bad connotation of the word “black”, the name was changed to the acronym: B.L.A.Q. P.Y.R.A.T.E.S., which stands for “Brothers Linked Amongst Qualifications, Protect Your Riches Alias Through Extreme Status”.
