I admittedly am not all that familiar with Martin $ky. It’s certainly by no fault of the young MC from Chicago, as he has certainly gone about establishing himself since appearing on the scene a year or so ago, but something about him has escaped me. I first caught word of him on his feature on ProbCause’s “High Altitude” off his The Recipe Vol. 2 project and have kept a keen eye on him since.
Elevator, who has been integral in championing local Chicago acts like Lucki Eck$, Lil Bibby, Lil Herb, Spenzo and more gave a further stamp of approval to the burgeoning MC by dropping the video for his track, “Drama”. The clip, shot by Elevator’s Bryan Zawlocki, finds Martin in a somewhat abandoned, desert-like environment complete with gas masks and train tracks to nowhere.
At this point, with all the talent coming from the Chicago it seems like artists are just grabbing their spot in the lunch line, waiting to blow. Martin $ky definitely has his spot.
