The revered veteran that is Skinnyman drops some knowledge in the way only HE knows how to do… Duno if I agree with everything he has to say in this instance but the guy’s definitely a character and a half and has the same conviction and enthusiasm as he did when I saw him on his ‘straight outta jail’ tour 8 years ago!
And this is the track! This would be big if it came out today but considering it’s from 2001/2 this is fire!!! Honestly less than a handful of UK Hip Hop artists have come by and influenced a generation of London, English and probably Australian MCs in the same way.
Oh and if you’re still not convinced then check this banger from a few years later on his ‘better late than never’ classic album ‘Council estate of mind’. Go cop it!
To end the Skinny megapost here’s sick battle between him and Saint, a succesful Jump off rapper that never got beyond just that.. Don’t forget, these bars are from the top of their head (assuming they didn’t pre-write apart from the odd line or 2). This is something that doesn’t get done too often these days!
