Hard-hitting Xanakin Skywok jolts listeners with new single ‘Eighties’
BAY AREA, CA – The West Coast has a mysterious new artist whose one-of-a-kind sound is bringing originality to the industry and causing a new wave of fans to pay attention.
Going by the name Xanakin Skywok, this Bay Area artist has released a new single called “Eighties” that perfectly showcases his new style of Rap. One part aggressive and hardcore and one part funny with a satirical nod to the 1980’s disco, the song is far different than what most fans of traditional Rap would expect. Lyrically, it has a little bit of everything – from storytelling, to introspective thought-provoking challenges, to sarcastic shots at pop culture celebrities, such as Amy Schumer.
It incorporates random things intended to get people riled up. That’s what his music is about– something that grabs and energizes you. Whether you hate it or love it, it’s polarizing but attention-grabbing. Most of his songs have hard-hitting punchlines. He has a great sense of humor and incorporates that in his music resulting in a novel and youthful zany vibe. There are only a few other rappers in the game today doing that, and it’s something we need more of in today’s music industry.
His music is best categorized as Hip Hop and loud Rap that incorporates aggressive and eccentric lyrics, fused with elements of metal, crunk and trap. His influences include XXXTentacion and Ski Mask the Slump God, among others. He combines those influences with a sound he’s been developing for many years, from the time he began writing lyrics at an early age. Since he launched his career in 2019, he’s developed a fan base that had helped him to accumulate more than 3.5 million views on YouTube. He has also collaborated with some upcoming artists in the West Coast, including a producer from the collective Internet Money Records.
He’s currently working on a collaboration project that should drop before the end of the summer, and plans to have another single come out before the end of May to join “Eighties” which is currently available across all streaming platforms. In all of his songs, he hopes to be provocative in ways that shock but also make people laugh.
This progressive rapper wants his music to be known for that WOW factor and how explosive and high-energy it is. Xanakin throws it at you and says, ‘Listen to this!’. It’s in your face but you can still have fun with it.
