The aesthetic is cold and unsettling for Lil Skies' latest.
Catch the new video for Skies' Gunna collab "Stop the Madness," directed by Sara Lacombe, up top. Lacombe is known for her previous video work with Migos, Meek Mill, and more. The latest Skies video was first teased via a pair of behind-the-scenes photos back in February.
The Based1 and DruArmada-produced track is taken from Skies' debut studio album Shelby, which also featured collabs with Gucci Mane and Landon Cube. At a TIDAL-hosted show earlier this month, Skies brought his mother—the inspiration behind the album's title—up to the stage so she could meet fans. "People asked me why I named my album after my mom, and shit, right?" Skies told the New York audience. "This is my backbone, bro."
Next up for Skies is a tour with Lil Pump starting April 19 in Seattle, Washington.
Gunna is fresh off the release of his own studio debut, last month's Drip or Drown 2. He's since been seen in the studio with Young Thug, who appeared on the Drip or Drown 2 cut "3 Headed Snake," and was among the featured guests on Lil Gotit's Crazy But It's True project. That same month, Gunna joined Metro Boomin for a Tonight Show performance of their "Space Cadet" collab that doubled as a televised show of support for 21 Savage.
