Skillz has come out with the traditional Rap Up for this year. In his summary of the year he talks about the highs and lows that have marked 2016. For the start, he kicks off with some pop-culture subjects like Leonardo DiCaprio finally getting the Oscar, El Chapo getting caught and Hamilton popping off. He also reminds us of the two great people we lost: Prince and Muhammad Ali.
There are also a lot of music references in this summary such as the shout out to that time Birdman confronted Charlamagne the God. Lil Wayne has also found his spot in the song, as he refers to him with the words: “And Lil Wayne still not putting respect on his name”.
He has also referred to the alarming rate of unarmed black men who were shot this year, pointing out the devastating Orlando shooting.
We can tell that many diferent things were going on in the world in 2016. As Skillz said- a new iPhone and wireless airpods debuted, Galaxy phones exploded, Gucci came home from prison, and Donald Trump beat out Hillary Clinton for president. It’s all in the song which you can listen to below.
