2 Chainz//T.R.U. Protegé Skooly Adds On To His ‘Sleeping Giant’ Series
Despite such a heavy music industry presence in ATL, T.R.U.artist Skooly hasn’t had his road to success paved for him. The multi-faceted hustler/trap rapper managed to finesse a deal with 2 Chainz’ label while elevating his other streams of income, including his bid in canna-business. For a twenty something from the Southside of Atlanta, it’s a common dream coupled with a rare reality. Now, with his Troy Taylor-produced Sleeping Giants Part 2 on all streaming platforms, Skool Boy is looking to gain more curious ears, which for him means more momentum.
“Me and my brother got our own weed company called Free Kill and strain called Spoiled Milk, but right now I’m smokin’ on a strain called Goo-Latto,” Skooly said to TheSource.com while walking through the Lower East Side of Manhattan’s new “cannabis district”. His admiration for the passing cars only leads to inquire as to what type of vehicle this man of expensive taste is driving. “I got a Maserati truck…a Levante,” replied the 28-year-old singer/songwriter/rapper. He claims “weed ventures and the fashion world” are some of his other hustles, but 2 Chainz’ protegé who looks more like his little brother, says that show money has him looking like he’s making blow money. When speaking about “Dobermans”, the collabo with the T.R.U. H.N.I.C. on Sleeping Giants, Skooly boasted, “Me and Chainz got so much music together, we don’t even say, ‘Throw me on this’ or ‘let me get on that’. But this one was special. and I wanted him on it because of the way I was talking shit. I knew nobody could keep up with me on that except for Chainz. I stood up on there and I wasn’t afraid to give it to ’em.”
Skooly doesn’t dodge his allegiance to Chainz neither professionally or personally. When asked if his situation with T.R.U. was what he expected when stepping into the music business, he replied, “It feels like home. Chainz always been home. I’m just grateful that people still be fuckin’ with me.” He added, “I’ve been doing this so long, that I’m just grateful that people are still interested in what I have to say or even care. That means something to me. At the end of the day, this is all I got, all I do, all I want to do…I don’t thin that there’s any job that I could do better than this job.”
