EDITORS’ NOTES

On “Welcome to the Rodeo,” the elastic intro to Life of a Dark Rose, Lil Skies proclaims that he’d tattooed his face to keep himself committed to music. The Pennsylvania native’s faith paid off before he was old enough to drink—his “Red Roses” was one of 2017's biggest underdog success stories. That song, while melodic and ethereal, betrays the impressive lyrical precision that Skies packs into much of Life of a Dark Rose. He's a dynamic vocalist and wordsmith, just as prepared to ride the emo guitar line of “Cloudy Skies” as he is to rattle off complex couplets over spacey chimes on “Signs of Jealousy.”

About Lil Skies

Rapper Lil Skies was born Kimetrius Foose in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania in 1998. Interested in music from his early childhood, Foose was recording and writing lyrics by the time he was 12 and eventually took on the Lil Skies moniker when he began taking his music more seriously. When he was enrolled in Shippensburg University, he dropped out to focus on music as his fan base grew exponentially. By this time he was performing regularly, even opening for rap sensations like Fetty Wap, among others. He released several singles and videos, notably "Signs of Jealousy," which caught the attention of Atlantic Records. The major label offered Lil Skies a deal in 2017, and debut mixtape Life of a Dark Rose appeared near the end of the year. ~ Fred Thomas
