Politically driven, soulfully charged, locally loved and refreshingly unflashy. Skitzo only wears one chain at a time, why? “Because more than one chain makes my people look like clowns” he says. He prefers Lugz over Timbaland boots, why? “Because all the money my people have given to that company, and I’ve never heard of them giving us anything back” Lyrical gems like these can be found scattered through-out his songs
