Credited by Atlanta’s biggest hip-hop names as one of the architects of the city’s sound, Skooly is a rising star ready to burst onto the national radar. Now 23 years-old and signed to 2 Chainz’ T.R.U. (The Real University), Skooly has been around the scene since he was 14, working with and putting on new artists like YFN Lucci and Young Thug, while creating original tags for Metro Boomin and London On Da Track. Today, Skooly is announcing his Don’t You Ever Forget Me EP trilogy, with the first volume releasing on February 2nd.
Along with the announcement of Don’t You Ever Forget Me, Skooly is sharing “Dirty Dawg Insane,'” the first single from the project. Reminiscing about life before the fame, Skooly rides over a piano-laden beat as he reflects on his come up and trials and tribulations. “I had the little vibe in my head for 2-3 days before recording,” Skooly explains to XXL. “I was around a lot of dogs around the time and it just topped it off and I came up with the phrase, ‘Dirty Dogs, they tell me I’m so insane, b*tch, clean dog, I ain’t got no fuckin mane, b*tch / single, y’all, I ain’t got no fuckin main, b*tch.’ I’m calling myself a dog, but I’m a clean dog. It’s a lot of poppin’ on this song but it’s a dark kind of poppin’.”
