Starting as a teen, the syllable spitter knocked out hits with different groups, starting with Southside Rollers in 1999. In high school, Skatterman met rapper Snug Brim, and the two became longtime collaborators. When their 2001 album “Worth a Million” caught the attention of Tech N9ne and his label Strange Music, the duo signed on with Strange for a successful, seven-year run.
After 8 years as Strange Music's self-proclaimed black sheep, 2012 marks the first official studio album for Indie Icon Tech N9ne’s former number one henchman. Skatterman has elevated his game even further since his separation from right hand manSnug Brim to develop a new sound and forge a new direction from a now solitary and more personal point of view.
Skatterman calls the project "TRUE." "It's about my reality," Skatterman says. "It's for the people who are still in the streets, or have people they love still in the streets." Expect the rapper to pull no punches. Given the freedom to speak entirely for himself, Skatterman plans to immortalize on wax his life experiences from the urban core, and his frustrations with the justice system, false friends and broken homes. The lead single called "Get It In" expresses Skatterman's attempt to distance himself from the drug game but the reminder of his allegiance to the life.
Though the sounds are evolving, Skatterman is still the same person he's always been. Skatterman says. "I have a lot of trust issues -- I don't trust anybody. I'm antisocial, so when I have a show, I arrive solo. I have been an artist on a label and I have been a part of a group. This is finally my opportunity to do ME." Trust this: Skatterman's "Street Life" will drop like a sonic blast.
