365 Entrepreneur: Skypp
The most sophisticated of street music comes from the creative yet conscious flow of writer/artist/educator Skypp.
For those who don’t know you, tell us about who you are and what you do?My name is Skypp, formerly known as Lil Skypp. I'm an artist, songwriter and record producer from the eastside of Indy. Creator of hip-hop's longest ran freestyle series, #SkyppSaturdays. Also an iTunes top-40 charting artist.
What got you into your field? My first dream was basketball but after a while I realized that being a career choice for me was far fetched. The next thing big thing was rap for me. All I knew was what surrounded me. Music and sports was my only getaways from my reality. Cliche, but true.
What’s the most creative innovation you’ve seen come out of the quarantine? The "Versuz" series that Swizz and Timbaland have created. I think that's something that could go on for years. Even in a live show setting. Just a dope idea overall and excellent execution! I love how it's boosting people's catalogs. Just pure dopeness.
What will you tell your grandchildren when they asked you what you remember most about the Coronavirus pandemic? I'd just want them to understand the importance of mental health. There's not much we can do about the things going on around us but there's always something we can do about what's going on within us. When you have your mind right you can withstand anything life throws at you. Worry about what you control and keep yourself and your loved ones in a healthy state of mind. This life will drag you to your knees if you let it. The pandemic was a fragile time for the world but life is full of adversity and mystery. Take care of you!
What can people do to show their support to what you’re doing? I just ask that people stay connected in contact with me. I'm very accessible and love building relationships with my supporters. I'm always up to something so there's always something to support. Once you give me your attention. I'll be sure to keep it!
