In just a few days (Feb. 3), Jamaican rapper Skillibeng and Florida rapper Nardo Wick teamed up with the aim of releasing a new single titled “16CHOPPA.” The track, in line with the duo’s pasts, is filled with hard-hitting bars discussing both their lifestyles and oft-violent pasts.
This newest release from Skillibeng follows up a December release called I’ll Never Die – The Prodigy Edition, which boasted 10 songs from assorted artists including Kyoka and Rich The Kid. In addition to his recent releases, the star of “Crocodile Teeth” has kept his fans well-fed with his well-received EP Mr. Universe, as well as a series of notable free drops and collaborations, including “blessing me” featuring Mura Masa, “Pree” featuring Popcaan, “Rain” featuring Shenseea, “Whap Whap (Remix)” featuring Fivio Foreign and French Montana, and “More Fire.”
Moreover, in 2022, Nardo also released the deluxe edition of his debut studio album in partnership with Caspian, titled Who Is Nardo Wick? , an album consisting of 31 tracks as well as features from a wide range of artists, including The Kid LAROI, BIG30, 21 Savage, Future, Lil Durk, Lil Baby, Latto, and more. Recently, he has collaborated with Babyface Ray, BIG30, and G Herbo in the song FaZe Kaysan “Plenty.”
A short while ago, Skillibeng talked to On The Radar Radio about his status as a musical frontrunner in an interview that I have included above:
“I’m not bragging, but… As of today, it has been over three years since I’ve been dubbed as Jamaica’s most talked about artist both locally and internationally,” he stated. “Since I’ve become the most talked-about artist for a couple of years now, and everybody is dying to know what I’m doing, they’re all asking, so what’s this kid all about?’? Who is Skilled?'”
In addition, he explained, “I think I am the leader of the new generation based on the stats and what the evidence shows. It seems like a lot of my flows have been stolen by others, don’t you think? Some of my techniques that I teach in interviews have been stolen by younger artists, they are stealing my moves, they are doing what I teach them, and that is stealing my talent as well. I am grateful to them.”
