Skye Verbs first got her official intoruduction to music through her parents' piano, leading her to honing her talents in a school choir, and later evolving in to the singer and emcee she has become.
“Hip hop has such a negative connotation but was meant to create positivity," Skye says of her craft. "I learned a lot in school, but one thing that really stuck was what hip hop was created for: higher infinite power healing our people."
“I want to use my music to heal people, like hip-hop was intended to do. I want to bring that message to RnB and trap soul as well – bring real messages, real depth, real vibes.”
Now, Skye has returned with her latest project, Soul Food Eye Candy, a project tha holds significance beyond the music.
"Soul Food Eye Candy is a mindset, lifestyle; a movement. It's how I describe the way in which I move throughout my life," Is how Skye describes her title choice. "Eye Candy isto maintain and show off appearance and figure in anyway one feels empowers and defines them best. Soul Food is the depth and substance of a being."
"Without substance, there is really no point," she further states. "This also applies to men, but I feel that in the public eye today, someone has to come out and preach what is missing in most of the popular context of social media today. In its entirety, I believe a woman can be as much eye candy as she wants, but not without being soul food first.”
SFEC comes in 8 total tracks and boasts no features as Verbs places her talents at the forefront as she vascillates between her soulful vocals and her rapping.
