1984 – [Skodi]

It hasn’t been extremely long since Skodi came across my radar, but the impact that she has made since I first found out about her is absolutely insane. Not only has she amassed countless fans and seen immense success, but her performance videos have seemed to get me beyond excited for whenever she makes a stop in Chicago because that’s a show I would completely love to be at.

This New Jersey-born, Miami-raised emcee has been a mainstay at Rolling Loud festivals all over the world, and even though Rolling Loud seems to be ahead of the rest of the industry in terms of discovering new talent, Skodi might just be one of their biggest gems yet. If you somehow haven’t tapped in quite yet, now is your opportunity because she just dropped a brand-new record produced by HeavyKev entitled “1984”, and it’s quite the spectacle that you’re not going to want to sleep on whatsoever moving forward.

The instrumental for this record is riddled with infectious percussion and a mischievous melody that is as hard as ever, but Skodi wastes no time before getting to the action. As she spits, it almost sounds like she is lecturing those who haven’t gotten the point yet, and the way her flows collide sound like a veteran pieced them together, but she is just getting started with her career, so it is crazy to think about where she is going to be in even just a year’s time.

Alongside the track comes a Fxrbes-directed video that adds even more fuel to this heater, and considering it’s a song that I immediately added to my playlist before I was even finished with my first listen, “1984” is something I’m going to be religiously playing back until we get some new hits from the up and coming star.
