The Heartbreak Gang Secret Weapon Embraces Shmoplife in a Claustrophobic and Multi-Colored New Video, Premiered by DirtyGloveBastard


Critical Praise for Skipper:

“Skipper is the HBK crew’s lyrical beast” – The FADER

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

The Video:

Filling dancefloors with his swaggering slaps, Richmond rapper Skipper is one of the Bay Area’s best kept secrets. Slyly stunting over sidewinding guitars, Skipper gives it up for himself and his crew on Realest In The Building,” his latest single. Featuring an appearance from fellow HBK Gang member and Shmoplife devotee Kool John, the video for “Realest In The Building” finds the two Bay Area kingpins stunting in an empty warehouse with a lone exotic dancer as the background lighting changes from a warm neon blue to a violent red. Premiered by DirtyGloveBastard, “Realest in the Building” is the latest video from  Prezidential, Skipper’s recent album and the latest volume in his Skip4Prez series, following the AKAFrank-featuring Nah.”

Charismatically celebrating the good life, 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. Prezidential is a populist rap record, stacked with crowd-pleasing anthems and hits. 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.” Featuring appearances from Iamsu!, Kool John, ymtk, and AKAFrankPrezidential premiered in GoodMusicAllDay earlier this month.
