For Skillz, better known as the lyrically astute emcee whose Wrap Ups are an official part of the hip-hop calendar, being “the Wrap Up guy” has to feel like a double-edged sword. While the annual breakdowns have gained him widespread attention, he’s still searching for a record that will help him break out of that box in the national consciousness, a search that continues today with new single Call Me Crazy. Behind the boards R. Baker and Dustin "Duece" Scott lay down a bouncing, echoing and strings-hemmed beat that Skillz uses to speak slick rhymes to a particular, currently taken girl: “Let you in on some things you should know / like your beauty grows / you look better than you did ten minutes ago.” I don’t know if his romantic efforts will succeed, but having the consummately smooth Raheem DeVaughn throw down a hook definitely won’t hurt. (Note to self: hire an elite r&b singer to help me pick up women.) Will his forthcoming, aptly-titled album, The World Needs More Skillz, be the work that finally takes Skillz to the next level? We’ll find out October 12.
