SKITS THE VISIONARY
E.H.M.P.: Let’s start with the breakdown of your name, S.K.I.T.S.?
E.H.M.P.: How old were you when you fell in love with Hip Hop?
SKITS: I had to be around 7 or 8. At the age of 13 is when I put myself out there. I was a young dude and there was a party outside in the projects in the Bronx (ThroggsNeck), and I picked up the mic in the cypher. I never looked back. That tape is floating around somewhere, (laughs).
E.H.M.P.: Do you consider yourself and MC or Rapper and why?
SKITS: I would consider myself and MC, because I am able to move the crowd when I perform. I also have concepts, and I think out the box when it comes to writing songs. I can have u dancing, ice grilling, gaining knowledge and etc, I would consider myself the total package.
E.H.M.P.: How did you get acquainted with Elegant Hoodness and would you suggest other artists get involved and why?
SKITS: My homie Young Fellz kept telling me about Elegant Hoodness. I was busy at the time doing shows with Rakim, and Dmx. Then he had a show. We came through and I fell in love with the hip hop environment. Maino and The Mafia performed that night. There was a lot of press and opportunity there for up and coming artists, which made it a great look. If up and coming artists are on the grind, they need to be a part of E.H.M.P. it’s a Hip Hop Movement!!!
