Dancehall Artist Skillibeng saw his career jump to levels that were considered legendary a couple years ago. Thanks to his string of singles that displayed sharp lyricism and instant comparisons to Vybz Kartel, Skilli was at the top of the Totem Pole overlooking his competitors. Since 2021, his name went from widely celebrated, to being ridiculed by some through the quality of some of his releases. His album “Crocodile Teeth” didn’t live up to the hype for some, and many were questioning his legitimacy as a Lyricist. He stirred up quite the controversy, but his loyal fans remained championing him. With his eyes set on covering more International grounds, Skillibeng released his latest EP, “Mr. Universe“.
Titled after the 2020 single, Skillibeng gives us 5 singles that should be able to give new listeners an idea of what to expect from him. The songs featured aren’t new, but his “Rocket Launcher” collaboration with Rapper Rich The Kid and Popcaan, “Piana“, and “The Most Power” from the “Crocodile Teeth” album are featured. His controversial single “Whap Whap” featuring F.S. made it to the list, so this EP is more for those who are new to Skillibeng’s catalogue. We look forward to more projects from Skillibeng this year, including a rumored album that has a June release date.
