Time have changed and times are continuing to change. It's very rare now-a-days to see a young budding rapper not clinging to a fad or clique for a quick buck or so called clout on the internet. The number of artists getting it out of their backyards continues to decrease, but there is still hope in the game; and that hope lies in Pennsyvania with Kimetrius Foose, formally known as Lil Skies.
If you haven't heard of Skies yet it's not entirely your fault, as the 19 year old talent doesn't do too many features and has only been on the scene for about a year and a half. Skies showed a ton of promise earlier in the year with his "Alone" mixtape; however in just the past four months, Lil Skies has been on a constant rise that has equated in a 700% increase in video views on Youtube and prompted hundreds of Google searches per month in his honor. It could be Skies' raw emotion or his extremely relatable and catchy tunes that has him at such a high stock, boasting multi-millions on multiple streaming sites; but his releases such as "Red Roses", "Life" and "Rude", give glimpses at a talent that could be a major asset in multiple facets of the game. To help you meet the next big thing out of PA, we've put together a playlist of some of Skies' best hits.
