A highlight from the Atlanta rapper's new project "BAcCWArdFeELiNgS."


Skooly has always excelled in making bright, shiny pop-rap songs, and "Basic" is a reminder of that fact. The Dun Deal-produced track comes early in the rapper's new project "BAcCWArdFeELiNgS," and features a stuttering key line that challenges the rapper to come up with an inventively catchy hook. Dun Deal later adds some satisfying details including some soft focus synth sounds, and, as he loves to do, a guitar line. Meanwhile, Skooly sounds confident as ever in his own lane, proving that he's a songwriter that deserves attention in 2017.

The new project features a few collaborations with like-minded Atlanta rappers. 2 Chainz shows up on "Swagger," while Young Thug assists on "Stylin'." He explores the darker sides of ATL trap, as well as getting into dreamy R&B-influenced territory, making for an eclectic effort held together by his strong songwriting. For the most part though, it's all Skooly, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Listen to the full project across all major streaming services.

Quotable Lyrics:
Long as you livin'
Give a fuck about 'em
Leave 'em dead
And I can't argue with you
If you ain't got equal bread
My teacher said you gon' be somethin'
If your mind fed
But nowadays
Got them bitches on they hind legs
