Layered vocals and synths produce a fascinating soundscape throughout the song, which perfectly match M.A.D.S.K.I.L.L’s impressive performance.
This artist is an exceptional wordsmith and raps with crystal clear pronunciation, making it easy to follow his intriguing revelations. He welcomes us in with a comforting and inviting tone, which completely absorbs the listener.
His unwavering faith is clearly represented within his delivery and it feels easily accessible and approachable for us.
The chorus assembles remarkably witty lyrics such as; “Jelly fish em, jelly fish em, the opposite of wisdom, I say, Jelly Fish em, made decision of indecision, Christian chicken, bending wherever the cultures living, if their sinning makes no difference, then I say Jelly Fish em”.
The catchy melody and lyrics entice listeners to rap along with M.A.D.S.K.I.L.L, imparting a notable lasting impression.
M.A.D.S.K.I.L.L invites Christ and the teachings of the gospel into our everyday lives through eloquently connected lyrics and relateable comparisons. This master of rap sermons shows us a pathway into a deeper understanding of the Holy Spirit.
M.A.D.S.K.I.L.L was born and raised Ken Wright III, in Altadena, California. From a baby, he was immersed in a world of music by his father, who was a jazz pianist and shared his love for music with his son.
As a young boy, still in diapers, he would sit under his father electric piano, soaking in the music. He was even privy to the studio jam sessions with his father and other jazz musicians, all of which ignited an intense passion for music.
Through freestyle battles and performing locally he honed his lyrical skills, however, when his path was redirected to Christ, his performance style underwent a major change, and he re-emerged as, M.A.D.S.K.I.L.L; M: Music, A: apologetically, D: directed, S: scriptural, K: knowledge, I: in, L: lyrical, L: language.
We are excited to see more revolutionary Christian hip-hop from this artist. If you enjoy music from artists such as Lecrae and Andy Mineo, then M.A.D.S.K.I.L.L will fit perfectly on your playlist. Watch out for his upcoming releases here:
