Freedom catalyzes creativity. When unshackled from addictions, expectations, and fears, art flourishes, potential actualizes, and energy awakens. Skizzy Mars undergoes such an awakening on his 2019 full-length debut, Free Skizzy Mars. By way of verbal dexterity, catchy confessions, and upbeat cinematic presentation, the New York-born rapper, songwriter, and artist documents a remarkable trip to the brink and back. The wisdom accrued, perspective gained, and experience earned enrich his vulnerable, vivid, and vital take on hip-hop.
“I learned I’m honestly capable of anything I put my mind to,” he exclaims. “I’m free from caring about what everybody thinks of me all the time. I’ve detached myself from results and focused on the process. I just want to deliver the best music possible. It’s a spiritual awakening. I’m at a different level of peace.”
This peace resulted from a seven-year grind. As the story goes, Skizzy went from cooking up blog-approved songs in his bedroom to selling out shows coast-to-coast and clocking 300 million-plus total streams as of 2019. Early mixtapes -- Phases and Pace -- fueled excitement. 2015’s The Red Balloon Project EP bowed in the Top 5 of the Billboard Top Rap Albums Chart and yielded “Time” , which put up numbers to the tune of 34 million Spotify streams. In addition to rocking stages alongside Logic, G-Eazy, Lupe Fiasco, and Ty Dolla $ign, he packed houses as a headliner, selling out dates on a regular basis. Not to mention, he attracted the praise of The Fader, NYLON, Complex, i-D, Pigeons & Planes, and HypeBeast, to name a few.
