Skillibeng is the breakout dancehall star of the past couple of years, joining the likes of Sean Paul and Vybz Kartel in the Jamaican hall of fame. The prolific artist, nicknamed The Fresh Prince, has put out two albums in the past 12 months, The Prodigy and Crocodile Teeth, and today he is celebrating the former turning one year old with an animated video for Popcaan collaboration "Pree."
The Prodigy is a monster project, clocking in at 35 tracks and featuring inspiration from across the musical landscape; trap, drill, R&B, and classic hip-hop all filter through into Skillibeng's Jamaican party music. "Pree," however, is an old-school cut, a lust-filled moment perfect for the dancefloor. The video, premiering below, takes things in a surreal direction and is filled with shots of cash, cars, and heavy artillery that bring an air of menace to proceedings.
Speaking to The FADER via email, Skillibeng said: "Yuh know me did affi include a track with Popcaan, who has been an inspiration over the years so this track is a general one yuh si, every gyal a pree."
