“So here it is kids… my new album ‘poor on purpose’… A bag of original tracks dating from before my classic ‘poor with £100 trainers’ brought into line with the current stuff I’ve been creating. A load of self produced beats and instrumentals spanning the spectrum, interlaced with my ‘trademark’ wordsmithery™/ Dead sick bars!
Alongside The Propatop Powerhouse of BRICKY T MORTAR and METRODOME
From dance music to grime to folk to (for want of a better phrase) hip-hop, I go right in as I attack all kinds of tempos and rhythms, while maintaining the high standard of bars I’m known for. Urban story telling with a serious, funny and sincere feel.
No management team…No writers.. No marketing ploys… just SKITTLES!
HOPE U ENJOY… THO I DON’T REALLY CARE. IN A BIT
“bout fuckin time you dithering cunt, we’ve missed you”
“Skittles still rapping better than everyone. This new one proves it. Get the album and shut up”
“I didn’t even need to listen to this album to know it was a masterpiece,
You don’t put a piece of shit in a gloriously carved wooden box”
PAVAN FOREIGN BEGGARs
“Skittles is easily one of my favourite artists in this whole UK movement. Ice cold but as real as it fuckin gets and not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve. Plus he will devour your favourite rapper like a beetroot feta canapé.. Manny FTW”
“Another stone cold classic”
RICH REASON BA (Hons.) (Oxford)
“Lovely to see LEVELZ’ resident introvert emerge from his shell a second time round. One wouldn’t have thought that someone who spends his time in the hushed corners of libraries and alphabetising his sock collection could concoct such a collection of wild urban anecdotes into a cohesive, rhyming and rhythmical whole; but Manchester’s musical underground, of which he is a cornerstone, has contrived to shock and subvert, as well as edify and entertain once more.”
“If I wasn’t me… I’d wanna be him”
Poor on purpose
“Good dose of skitty’s unique style of truth telling n productions , aswell a few guest producers ? ……….. OBVS”
ICICLE – ‘Poor on purpose, rich in musicality, ability, depth! Skittles shows why he is the walrus! Bench mark!’
YOUNGSTA -“One of Manchester’s finest and best in the game! Lyrics full of passion and straight from the heart, check this album out”
BLACK JOSH -“Sweg, it’s about time”
SPMC -Skittles is one of the best MCs in the country for me. His first LP was a classic – this new album only further cements his position at the top of the pile.
