I, “Nowadays,” and “Red Roses” are the three songs that have helped him reach the highest positions on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. His first mixtape for a major label, The Life of a Dark Rose, was released in 2018, and it reached its highest position on the Billboard 200 chart at number 10.
Lil Skies Early Life
Kimetrius Foose was born in Pennsylvania on August 4th, 1998. He hails from the state of Pennsylvania. He is the middle-class offspring of two parents of mixed race who were born and raised in the United States.
Rap music was one of Michael’s favorite genres when he was a kid. However, Skies’s father exposed him to music of different genres from an early age. Michael would frequently bring him with him to the recording studios. Freestyling was something that Skies began doing on his own after being encouraged to do so by his father.
Lil Skies Career
Before he ever attended college, he was already doing freestyle over rap tracks at college performances. This continued even after he graduated. Additionally, he had a strong academic background. As a consequence of this, he gained a significant amount of popularity at college, and he was eventually given the opportunity to start off a show for Fetty Wap.
However, by that time, he had already established himself as a semi-famous figure on both “YouTube” and “SoundCloud.” In August of 2015, he published the music video for the song “Lonely,” and the overwhelming reception to the song inspired him to embark on other musical projects.
In 2016, he published a second music video on YouTube titled “Da Sauce,” which went on to become an enormous success and garner more than one million “views.” The more content he uploaded to his SoundCloud account, the more followers he earned.
In July of 2017, the first single from the album, titled “Red Roses,” was made available to the public. The song shot to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart almost immediately after it was released as a single. The lyric was written by Landon Cube in conjunction with the song’s production. After only a few short weeks, the song climbed all the way up to number 69 on the chart.
In 2017, Skies released a new single titled “Nowadays,” which performed somewhat better on the American rap charts than the previous record. The song reached its highest position on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 55, after making its debut at number 85.
The next year, before his mixtape titled “Life of a Dark Rose” was made available to the public, “Atlantic Records” had already reached an agreement to do business with him. This resulted in a promise of a significant release, and as a consequence, Skies was well prepared to establish himself as a notable rapper.
