Hidden Gem: Skizzy Mars *alternative rap

August 11th, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Hidden Gem, Hip-Hop/Rap |

Manhattan, NYC rapper Skizzy Mars is an interesting act. As an alternative rap artist, he brings a unique lyrical flow with laid back almost indie sounding instrumentals. Kind of reminds me of OnCue and Macklemore but Skizzy is doing his thing in New York City. I know we are a little late on Skizzy Mars but hopefully you haven’t heard these four dope songs from the musician whose influences range from Kanye West and Frank Ocean to Beirut and The Killers.

Here’s five of my favorites from Skizzy Mars. The songs are listed from newest to oldest but if you listen from his oldest song at the bottom to the newest song at the top, you will notice how the quality steadily improves, a big reason why I consider him a hidden gem and an artist that’s a must watch.
