In 1999 at the age of twelve, the young Chicago native Skrip sequenced his first hip-hop instrumental track using the 12 string guitar as a main melody. From that time to 2010, Skrip built up a resume that included opening for several well known artists as a rapper, honed skills as a beat boxer, producer, had his fare share of emcee battles, and spent time as a full time b-boy.
Skrip offered his free album ‘The Underscore’ and his debut album ‘Becoming All Things’ in 2011 and was received by the public with open arms. His albums have displayed his roots reminiscent of golden era boom bap, pop, catchy hooks, vivid story telling, and melodies. Skrip showed that as a song writer and producer he cannot be boxed in stylistically as a boom bap producer. When St. Louis giant and gutter rap perfectionist, Thi’sl introduced his 2011 album ‘Beautiful Monster,’ you immediately saw that Thi’sl had grown musically. That growth can partially be attributed to Skrip’s songwriting, production, and singing on the title track “Beautiful Monster” which also features Swoope. Skrip also contributed the theme music to Reach Records artist Andy Mineo’s ‘Saturday Morning Car Tunez’ series, as well as two songs “Hello World” and “Listen” from ‘Formerly Known,’ Andy Mineo’s free album. “Every subject that he talks about is something that’s really relevant in someone’s life-or something that some girl went through or somebody is going through or what someone is thinking or what someone even doubts about.” – Joey Fernandez (Lupe Fiasco, Patti Labelle, Smokie Norful, Dave Hollister)Skrip was included on Rapzilla.com’s 12 Freshman of 2012 after displaying a high level of talent and promise with his two offerings in 2011, ‘The Underscore’ and ‘Becoming All Things.” When the owners of Rapzilla.com made the move to start a record label of their own, they immediately thought of Skrip. Skrip was the first signing to Infiltrate Music and will prove to be a vital asset to the team.
