This week Carolina Home Jams Spotlights rapper SKZIY. He dropped past the Choice FM studio to debut his song “4 The Gram” Take a listen below…
Bio- Brooklyn, New York born hip-hop artist SKZIY refers to himself as the “Yelp! of the culture — the guide to what’s cool.” Sonically, he’s trap music with a witty fusion of classic hip hop vibes that allow him to showcase his versatility and “rewind worthy” punchlines. It’s safe to say these attributes are largely a result of his musical influences, Fabolous, Cam’ron and Jay-Z — three monumental rap figures who’ve influenced SKZIY’s own style and business acumen.
After a rough adolescence in Brooklyn, he moved to North Carolina to pursue college.
Since his move, SKZIY has been featured on BET’s “Rap City” series and boasts an A3c “Music Video of the Year” nomination. He also recently headlined a national 5 city tour. Talk about making the right move.
Most recently SKZIY launched a record label, Carolina North Ent., with childhood friends. His passion for music drive all of his successes. “I make music cause it’s something I really love…something I would be doing regardless of fame, money or accolades.” His latest video “4 THE GRAM, ” can be viewed on YouTube. The audio version is currently available on all digital retailers.
