Skipp Coon

SkippAbout the Artist:
His words embody those of one that is definitely a by-product of his environment.  His lines are witty & dark, sincere yet powerful and his message is thought-provoking and socially conscious, all of which complement his political, societal, and economic views.  Skipp simply “makes music that allows his listeners to react and not feel alone in the struggle”.

Current Projects:

  • political hip hop
  • lyric analysis
