If you have not heard of Lil Skies then go on to Spotify and Apple Music and listen to his music. On the surface, he might look like your regular clout rapper. He has face tattoos, smoked weed, and raps about parties and girls, BUT his other tracks talk about his constant hustle and his dedication to his mom who constantly worked to pay their bills. In his interview with Montreality, he discusses his idol a man who was extremely tatted, but walked around like nothing and did not care about the stares he received. On the topic of the law of attraction, Lil Skies stated: "I definitely do believe in this sh-t, if you think positive about something and I feel like it will happen." He mentions manifestation and how he would speak it to the universe and it happened for him. As someone who believes in manifestation and intentions, it was nice to hear that one of my favorite rappers also believes in that and is accomplishing his goals.
Another thing that sets Lil Skies apart is that he keeps to himself on social media. He lets his actions speak for himself and he usually does not start beef with other rappers or talent. Instead, he keeps being consistent with his music by releasing music videos and collaborating with other artists like Wiz Khalifa.
In the same interview, he discusses how he is a very romantic person with significant others, but he is also trying to spoil the other women in his life like his mom, who he gave a present to on stage at one of his concerts. His fans can see how silly he is on funny moment videos about him. But he is also serious about drugs and says that he only smokes weed and does not want to fall victim like other artists.
For Lil Skies it really is all about his music and really showcasing his talent.
