Boston native Skaa is back repping his hometown on his new single Kilimanjaro. Over the past month, Skaa has been steady dropping music on his Soundcloud page. On tracks like YOU KNOW and ABOUT IT, Skaa brings his songwriting ability to the forefront and gives us a clearer glimpse into his quick come up in Boston. On Kilimanjaro, Skaa is stepping away from infectious rhyme patterns and catchy hooks, and embracing a more traditional golden age rap style. His bars are riddled with wordplay and metaphors which serve to illustrate Skaa’s current situation in the rap game, his love for his crew, and his future endeavors. Skaa also throws in some motivational bars, telling people to stay on their grind. Skaa has collaborated with several producers throughout his career and at the same time has managed to craft a cohesive sound. He is a fan on soul samples, and Kilimanjaro’s instrumental is proof. The high-pitched vocals in the background are reminiscent of classic Kanye Beats, adding an emotive touch to the song as whole. The video has minimal edits, letting us hone in on Skaa’s performance.
Skaa is steadily crafting a sound for himself, and his latest single Kilimanjaro, proves that the Boston rapper has no shortage of things to get of his chest.
