Los Angeles-based Saudi-Arabian/American rapper, producer, and singer $kinny pulled through to the Power 106 studios to chop it up with DJ Carisma about his latest ’Have A Nice Trip’ for the current “Checc’d In” installment.
With standout single “Salam” highlighting Skinny’s rap prowess and his nod to incorporating and representing his heritage, the French Montana-featured, and Swizz Beatz-produced track was a record that easily came together, as Skinny describes the recording process with Swizz. “Salam” serves as a blend of cultures and Skinny’s perspective on hip-hop, which is also displayed in his new album. As the artist has been putting in work in the game for years, Skinny still is hungry to continue to expand his audience and authentically grow in his craft.
Skinny goes on to speak on hopes of touring with French Montana, since he recently signed with UTA, talks about the huge amount of love he gets from New York City, and much more.
