For a few months now, Graduation Music has been covering Skunkz and the wide range of talents that he possesses. In this time, looking back on the articles we’ve written about the Boston native, I’ve noticed one main aspect of Skunkz’s artistry that always seems to keep me hooked on his music: effortlessness. In truth, when Skunkz hops on the mic, it never feels as though he’s trying too hard. The words flow with one another quite naturally, and by using such nonchalant yet energetic cadences in his raps, the rising talent is always able to make impressive music without pushing away new fans and listeners. Today, he shows this off with a brand new single entitled “Heavyhitters”.
Produced by Crank and Lobo, it’s important to note that this track acts the first song off of the Trash Talk Series presented by Skunkz. And quite frankly, it’s a hell of a way to kick things off. His skills have been sharpening with each successive release over the past few months, and by bringing forth his most refined self in “Heavyhitters”, it is clearly shown that the hard work is paying off for the Boston representative. Through the scope of sonic direction, tightened-up flows, and increasingly charismatic vocal performances, Skunkz has just about found his sweet spot in the world of music, and the result is some truly impressive output for us all to enjoy.
