Focusing on his sound and versatility he aspires to change the look of hip hop in a way that everybody will enjoy. His first song, “Cool Dude” was shocking to people because it was different and made sure we knew he was not just another rapper. His next two songs “Vegas” and “Live It Up” were about enjoying life and having a great time. With bars that make you go, “Who is that?” there’s no reason why he won’t be up there with the greatest artists. When speaking to Skip, you’ll learn that he is not your average rapper.
