Infiltrate Music Signs Skrip As First Artist To Roster
Infiltrate Music is ecstatic to announce Chicago native, Skrip as their first signing! As one of Rapzilla.com’s 12 Freshman of 2012, Skrip displayed a high level of maturity, talent, and promise with his two 2011 offerings, ‘The Underscore‘ and ‘Becoming All Things.’ Skrip’s musical offering is well rounded and not without reason. Over the years Skrip honed his skills as a beat boxer, producer, had his fare share in emcee battles, and time spent as a full time b-boy. Skrip offered his free album and his debut album 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.
“We were looking for a multi-talented artist to be the anchor of our label. We needed someone that could write songs, produce, rap, sing, record, and serve as A&R. Skrip can fill those needs and more.” says co-owner Chad Horton
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 and Infiltrate Music will release the ‘The Underscore II’ later this year.
