Skillz - Bring the Sparklers Out
It may seem premature to Bring the Sparklers Out when you’ve only just released the lead single off your next—and in this case, final—LP. On the other hand, f**k it; Skillz is back in the Booth and, if the Virginia vet feels like celebrating, who am I to stop him? Here, a currently uncredited producer’s raucous percussion and brass brass fanfare set the mood as the rhymesayer swills champagne and lords the enormity of his paper stacks over the competition. Though the topics are perennial rap touchstones, Skillz’ nonchalant delivery gives this boastful banger a unique feel. Has Sparklers whet your appetite for more fresh tunes? Keep it locked for more leading up to the unscheduled, but imminent release of the artist’s last studio album, Thoughts Become Things.
