Skillz is capping off the year right.
The Virginia rapper looks back with his annual “Rap Up,” which recaps the past year in music, entertainment, politics, and pop culture.
This time around, Skillz is joined by Lil Duval on the nearly five-minute track, which samples the comedian’s single “Smile (Living My Best Life).”
Skillz references Will Smith joining Instagram, the Eagles’ Super Bowl win, the “movie of the year,” Black Panther, the birth of Chicago West and Stormi Webster, Nas and Kelis’ divorce, Bey-chella, the royal wedding, the #MeToo movement, Meek Mill’s homecoming & takes shots at Kanye West as well as addresses rap’s biggest beefs, including Drake vs. Pusha-T, Eminem vs. Machine Gun Kelly & Cardi B vs. Nicki Minaj.
Skillz also highlights what he says to be an “ugly year” with Demi Lovato’s overdose, Mac Miller’s death, and Cardi B and Offset’s breakup. Plus, he brings up Jacquees’ recent claim to the R&B throne & declares Beyoncé the “King of R&B.”
“Y’all live your best life and keep doing your thing. This Mad Skillz, welcome to 2019,” Skillz
