After making his Graduation Music debut with the Mike Hector-produced single, “Smooth Boy“, Skunkz, or NSL, is back once again today to unleash his latest offering, “OK My Friend”. But this track isn’t just another single to hold the fans down – instead, this is the lead single off of Skunkz’ forthcoming full-length effort, Skunkz Le Pew, due for release very, very soon according to the Boston native and his camp. Regardless of when we receive the main course, however, “OK My Friend” is a very solid offering that will surely keep listeners on the edge of their seats in pursuit of more to come from this standout talent. Just a few songs into his rap career, I’d say Skunkz is doing quite alright as of yet.
That being said, let’s delve further into “OK My Friend”. Featuring production from Twayne and StayCrank, this song jumps off on an infectious note with a sample-based, mesmerizing beat that any fan can latch onto with ease. It progresses seamlessly, and once complemented by Skunkz and his seemingly never-ending array of hard-hitting lyricism and uncut honesty, the final product comes full circle as a noteworthy single within the catalog of this Boston representative and the street lifestyle that he details in his music. “OK My Friend” is also a testament to the imagery that this young artist brings to the table, and as every line seems to paint a picture in the listener’s head, we’re all brought a step further into the mind and life of Skunkz and his team.
