SKOOLY GETS “NASTY” IN LATEST APPETIZER TRACK
T.R.U. ARTIST DROPS FRESH SINGLE ALONGSIDE NEXT FRIDAY-INSPIRED COMPANION VISUAL
T.R.U. (The Real University) recording artist Skooly dropped his latest appetizer track “Nasty”. The tested Atlanta rapper stayed busy over the past few weeks releasing both “Mulatto” and “Coachella”. These offerings set the table for his forthcoming mixtape Nobody Likes Me, due May 22nd, which features currently unreleased songs.
Earlier this season, Skooly and the T.R.U. collective released their No Face No Case album. The 15-track compilation project highlighted street-certified talent from Atlanta’s various zones. Skooly kicked off the imprint’s weekly #TRUsday releases with street executive 2 Chainz on “Virgil Discount,”. He showcased his quintessential delivery against a melodious flute and rattling 808s. His other releases included the bouncy “Pop Off” and the spirited “How I Feel” remix with Quando Rondo and NoCap. The dexterous artist can also be heard flexing on with Quavo on “Reliable” and a frenetic feature on the T.R.U. posse cut “Jefe Shit.”
Praised by Pitchfork for “changing the way Atlanta rapped,” the XXL Freshman hopeful has crafted a distinctive sound “that splits an imaginary line that divides swag rap and contorted R&B.” In addition to collaborations spanning Future to Young Thug, the well-connected Rich Kidz co-founder has maintained a devout following with a consistent supply of features, collaborations, and original music like his Blacc Jon Gotti mixtape and Don’t You Ever Forget Me series. Skooly was recruited in 2019 by GRAMMY® Award-winning rapper 2 Chainz to join his record label T.R.U. (The Real University) comprised of a vanguard of Atlanta hip-hop talent including Skooly, Sleepy Rose, Hott LockedN, and Worl. T.R.U. would announce its partnership with Atlantic Records that fall with the posse-cut “Shoot It Out” ahead of their full-length album representing “a sonic vision that highlights the Atlanta sound” (Hot New Hip Hop).
