Critical Praise for HBK Skipper:

“He continues to fine-tune his incredibly catchy brand of West Coast-infused rap.” – HotNewHipHop

The Announcement:

Specializing in charismatic anthems about the good life, Skipper creates the perfect soundtrack for weekend nights, from peak hours at a club to a late-night smoke session. Returning with a compact and diverse selection of slaps, Skipper announces Prezidential, his upcoming project. Glistening with high quality production from the likes of MontageCuddy On The Beat, Jabari The Great, and more, Prezidential proves Skipper’s ability to navigate a variety of instrumentals, like the ethereal “I Don’t Care,” the trappy “Nah,” and the mob-like, bass-heavy “Posed To.” The latest chapter in his Skip 4 Prezseries, Prezidential is a populist rap record, stacked with crowd-pleasing anthems and potential hits. Featuring appearances from IAMSUKool John, AKA Frank, and ymtkPrezidential arrives on February 2nd.

One of the Bay Area’s best kept secrets, Richmond-native Skipper is one of the original members of the HBK Gang, tearing up regional clubs and radio stations and teaming up with IAMSU and former HBK member LoveRance for the inescapable club hit Up,” which reached #2 on the Billboard Hip-Hop and R&B charts. Skipper has been an integral part of many other HBK hits, including Never Goin’ Broke” and “Swaggin,” which reached the Billboard Hot 200. A major ringleader, with Kool John, of the Shmoplife movement in the Bay Area, which prioritizes good vibes and carefree living, Skipper has collaborated with 24 Hrs and The Cool Kids, and shared the stage with MadeinTYO

To accompany the announcement of Prezidential, Skipper shares Right Time,” the frenetic first single from the project. With synth arpeggios, stuttering hi-hats, and a rubbery bassline, “Right Time” is a raucous, club-ready slapper. Featuring an appearance from IAMSU, “Right Time” finds the two longtime collaborators spitting their best game to all the ladies in the club. Premiered by LA Leakers, “Right Time” is available gratis with any pre-order of Prezidential.
