Though Lil Skies has made this column previously, we whiffed on the specific track: it's "Red Roses," which is moments from hitting the charts, thanks to its unassuming, coolly reflective approach. Whatever your stereotype of "SoundCloud rappers," Skies' track suggests a deepening artistic sensibility and a much more nuanced approach than the aggro-bombast drill-goes-rock-n-roll cliché of the moment. The Pennsylvannia-raised rapper is poised to have a breakout moment, even as a SoundCloud rap backlash in the press seems imminent.
