In March, Skillibeng celebrated his signing to Eastsyde/RCA Records with the release of "Whap Whap," an ode to gun sounds with an assist from fellow Jamaican dancehall artist F.S. As it turns out, that song was the second single from the rapper's new Mr. Universe EP, billed as the prelude to a longer studio release sometime this summer.
The new tape closes with that song and opens with "Rocket Launcher" featuring Rich The Kid and Popcaan, a track from his October 2021 album Crocodile Teeth. These two previously released tracks are joined by three interceding solo cuts — "Love Handles," "Thee Most Power," and "Piana."
