Skillz is back with his annual summation the year’s happenings in the “2016 Rap Up,” and it seems like he hit on most the things that ended up being newsworthy.
Of course, Donald Trump was mentioned, along with Hillary Clinton and Kanye West’s breakdown. Skillz also talked about Beyoncé’s Lemonade album, Rihanna’s incredible work ethic and the whole mumble rapper movement.
The Virginia-raised rapper also touched on how difficult 2016 was for a lot folks, and how many people we lost.
“The whole year made no sense / Dog, we live in a world without Muhammad Ali and no Prince,” he raps,” over Audio Two’s classic “Top Billin’” beat.
In addition, Skillz spoke about the whole Oscars So White controversy, that now seems like a million year’s ago, and he also gave his opinion on the best album the year.
“I miss the Obamas, I don’t want to see them go / My prayers to everyone we lost in Orlando / Oscars is so white they had to get Chris Rock / And the album the year had to be Anderson .Paak,” he spit.
