Honesty. In a genre marketed via embellishing and arrogance, that one specific character trait is why Skewby is “Almost There.” He doesn’t hobnob with A-Listers, collect black market money or have a killer flow. Nor does he claim to. Instead, the Memphis MC has gotten this far in his career – appearing on MTV’s Rap Fix last week – because his music emulates that dedication to keeping it one hundred. This new leak from Skewb’s upcoming project of unknown origins is no different, focusing on his typical see-through Ceran raps and turning out insightful as ever, for fans looking to see the downtrodden realities of rapping full-time. Sure, the rewards may seem lucrative, but when you feel bad about yourself for taking a nap and routine life becomes a burden, when does the sacrifice stop?
If Skewby stays persistent, hopefully not anytime soon.
