Bronx based rapper SK No Edit has taken a rough road to get where he is today. He was an All-American athlete majoring in math at MIT, and taught himself guitar to the extent that he now can fearlessly jam with funk, alternative, and metal bands. All the while, he forged his way through woes of identity, prejudice, and family struggles. Above all else however, SK No Edit does not allow any of that define him, and instead, he declares – through not just his name – that there’s no limit to his potential, both artistically or personally.
Early on SK No Edit found solace in the likes of punk and alternative bands such as Blink 182 and Linkin Park, and later coming to appreciate the top flight sound-craft of artists regardless of genre, such as Eric Clapton, Chris Stapleton, or Kendrick Lamar. All in all, the pure energetic release of the sound, and the raw emotion of the lyrics is what does it for SK, and this has inspired his own work deeply.
SK No Edit’s latest single, ‘Head Case’, sees the artist take on the topic of mental health, with his fearless nature which his friends, family, and fans know all too well. Over a trap-infused, ultra bass beat, SK adds layers of crunchy metal chords, while spitting out the lyrics in a fashion worthy of a prize fighter’s championship ring punches.
The track is further augmented by the music video for ‘Head Case’. Directed by Sean Fleming, we see SK roaming about Asbury Park, New Jersey. He’s strapped to the roof of a car, climbs walls, and by use of filters, is able to fully convey the emotions he’s experiencing, bringing to life the internal workings of his mind.
