June 11, 2015

Chicago MC Martin $ky addresses his critics and competition in his new single, "Self." The 808-heavy track is a savvy and bold introduction to those who are unfamiliar with the confident underground rapper. $ky makes it clear that he's not looking for friends and he's in it to win it. "The rap game isn't all about being all buddy buddy," $ky told The FADER. "This is a competition at the end of the day. I'm just letting the world know I'm here."

"I create so I can eat and make sure my squad is straight," he continued. The slow-paced song highlights that motivation with lines like They mad at me cuz' I've been on my self shit/ Grinding all day and all night to get the wealth shit. Keep your ears peeled for more from $ky.
