SKAM2? might have been immortalized as an obscure, underground figure on Eminem's "Stan," but it would be a crime to simply mention this accolade as the only highlight in his career. The Miami native is also a skilled artist, having created the album cover for A Tribe Called Quest's Beats, Rhymes, & Life as well as a handful of pieces for the previously mentioned Detroit superstar. With the release of his upcoming The Skronik: Flying Monkey Murder Cirkus, SKAM has used his two passions to create a project that shows off his pen game in the fullest sense.
Produced by Infamous, "Definition" is the fully charged banger that'll allow you to start the week on the right foot. As SKAM gets busy over this beat that borrows from West Coast rap archetypes, M1 of Dead Prez drops a series of hot bars while DJ Immortal gives us those necessary cuts. Much like the styles of each artist, the video stays with tried and true basics instead of going overboard with flashy images; this ends up working in favor of them as it allows us to put more focus on what they have to say. SKAM2?'s The Skronik: Flying Monkey Murder Cirkus is set for a release real soon, so keep him on your radar.
