Indianapolis Rapper Skypp Takes His Throne as the "King of Indiana" With New Album Featuring Rhymefest

With sights on a revolution, Skypp is back with his own brand of Sophisticated Street Music. Following his most recent Top 15 iTunes charting project, Skypp’s new album KING OF INDIANA released on all major platforms March 19th. The album contains 20 original songs and vignettes, including "Sundown Town, USA" and “Divine Rights of Kings,” whose accompanying videos dropped today. KING OF INDIANA boasts features from Grammy-winning hip hop artist, songwriter, and activist Rhymefest (Kanye West, John Legend), Allison Victoria, Chuck Mason and more.

KING OF INDIANA is much deeper than what appears on the surface. Deep within the clever bars and comedic skits are real life issues that need to be addressed and resolved,” Skypp says of the new album. “The team and myself put countless energy, creativity and time into this album and I couldn't be more proud of the outcome. Remember, the only thing stopping you from being a king/queen is your OWN validation. Equality is king!” - Skypp

Skypp first gained notoriety in 2011 with his weekly SoundCloud series “Skypp Saturdays” where he would flow over industry rap instrumentals. He has since appeared on shows with Babyface, DMX, Charlie Wilson, Mystikal, Too $hort, Floetry, Yo Gotti, Toni Braxton, DJ Quik, and Anthony Hamilton. A key member of his hometown, Skypp was recently featured on the side of an IndyGo metro bus in promotion of the city’s new Red Line transportation service. Skypp shows no signs of slowing down having charted in the top 15 of the iTunes Rap/Hip-Hop Albums charts with his new release, KING OF INDIANA.

ABOUT SKYPP

Indianapolis rapper Skypp has built a reputation as the voice of reason in the streets with his brand of Sophisticated Street Music. Shining a light unto the underground with witty bars of wisdom and cautionary narratives, Skypp's music is a blend of cerebral boom-bap, trap prophecies and braggadocious flows over modern productions. A career that has embodied growth, and maturation through the years, Skypp's message of introspection, self-awareness and empowerment is a far cry from his idea of rap dreams when he first started writing rhymes in 6th grade. Once enamored by the facade and lifestyles of industry rap, the humble King of Indiana is looking to make a difference, more than a dollar these days, working in schools and around the community as a living example of his words on wax.

This is the craziest beef to hit Social Media. Ali Vegas and Dr. EnQI have been accused of calling for the death of Lil Nas X by Brian McKnight Jr. The altercation began over a simple DMX post on Dr. EnQi’s Instagram page that escalated to a full-blown social media war…tap in!

Carl Brister "L.O.V.E. Club REMIX" by Mark Wilson [*Bonus Video*]

"Lately the world's been goin' crazy, but hate divides. Love's the one thing that unifies." When I wrote these words, I was concerned about the world that was being left for the next generation. I needed to write these lyrics as a way to offer a solution as we stand up for racial equality, social justice, and as we support one another through the pandemic.DJ's....Enjoy this exclusive CLUB remix by Mark Wilson!…See More
