Lil Skies’ Real Estate is one of the most talked about mixtapes of the year. The project was executive produced by Mike Will Made-It and features production from some of the biggest names in the game, including TM88, Southside, and Wheezy. The tape has been praised for its hard-hitting beats and Lil Skies’ unique flow and lyrical style.
By the time he joined university, he had already started free-styling on rap beats at college shows. He was also academically good. As a result, he became quite popular in college, and once got the opportunity to open a Fetty Wap show. However, by then, he was already a minor celebrity on ‘YouTube’ and ‘SoundCloud.’ He uploaded his music video for the song ‘Lonely’ in August 2015, and the thunderous response to the song made him work on more music. In 2016, he uploaded a second music video, ‘Da Sauce,’ which became a massive hit and gained more than a million “views.” His ‘SoundCloud’ account gained followers with each new upload.
The first single from the album, ‘Red Roses,’ was released in July 2017. The single became an instant hit and earned a place on the ‘Billboard Hot 100’ chart. The song was created in collaboration with rapper Landon Cube. Within a few weeks, the song reached the 69th spot. In 2017, Skies released another single, ‘Nowadays,’ which fared slightly better on the American rap charts. The song debuted on ‘Billboard Hot 100’ at number 85 and peaked at number 55. The following year, before his mixtape ‘Life of a Dark Rose’, released, ‘Atlantic Records’ had already established a business deal with him. This led to a promise of a big release, and Skies was thus all geared up to launch himself as a prominent rapper.
