Getting To Know Skitz
We’ve been hearing good things about the kid Skitz and decided to catch up with him and here is what he had to say.
Ray: What type of rapper would you say you are?
Skitz: I’m a poetic rapper, i use my words to teach people and hope they listen, like Nas or Talib Kweli.
Ray: You’re working on a EP called ‘Trial Of The Century’ what is it about?
Skitz: I’m giving you the Skitz story and history all in one, after releasing Mental Artistry in 2012, i felt like i needed to do something like this where i would take my time with the music and give people a full significant experience.
“I want people to feel like they have stepped out of some psychedelic wrap of colours, words and peace.”
Ray: Saw you getting recogntition from scoop…how does that make you feel? that such people are taking notice of your work
Skitz: It motivates me to work harder, he’s passed mad wisdom to me about the game and how to survive as an artist. I’m grateful for every bit of support, from all spheres.
Ray: You seem to come from a Fam, thats good with words, what else can/do you do?
Skitz: I write poetry, play soccer, just learning shxt even if its silly and pointless.
Ray: 3 local rappers you admire and would like to work with?
Skitz: Okmalumkoolkat, Amu and AKA.
Ray: You’re on a sinking ship with AKA, HHP, Khuli Chana and Tumi; who would you leave behind? you can only save 3.
Skitz: Hahahaha!!!! just thinking about it makes me laugh, i’d leave hhp cause somehow i know he’ll find his way to land.
Ray: Local and international albums you recently bought?
Skitz: Spoek Mathambo’s Future Sound Of Mzansi and EPMD’s Business Never Personal.
Ray: Where can we get your music?
Skitz: Everywhere, most of it can be downloaded from my blog; www.ghostghostrahh.tumblr.com i tend to drop links on twitter too.
Ray: what inspired ”nonchalant”?
Skitz: It was inspired by me, looking back at 2012, laughing, taking sips of coffee and watching life unfold, breezing through and taking everything in.
“the name is Skitz Tha RetroSpect always and forever”
….yeah we out folks, peace!
Finish your breakfast
In life you have to “finish your breakfast”. You can’t look ahead and get distracted by the unpredictable future. You have to stay focused on whatever task you have at hand and finish strong. Don’t look back but don’t look ahead until you finish what you start.
The phrase, “finish your breakfast” has made a personal impact on me. I think back to various periods in my life when I missed out on opportunities or didn’t see all-the-way-through goals I set out to accomplish. No matter how much adversity I face or even how easy it may seem to accomplish certain goals, I can’t get complacent. I have to continue to give 100% to the very end.The breakfast phrase is all about combining skill with focus, determination and effort. You can have the talent but do you have the drive? Setting out to “finish your breakfast” is the mentality that drove Jay-Z to make the Black Album a near classic.
If you’re hungry to successfully accomplish any goal that you set in life, you must stay focus and finish strong.

There’s something about Kanye’s eyes in this image. I feel there’s a story behind the look in his eyes, wish i knew what it was.
