In November, Atlanta trap music innovator Skooly released his debut 13-track album, BAcCWArdFeELiNgS, which featured 2 Chainz, Young Thug and KIDD. Now he has quickly followed that up with the first volume of an EP trilogy, with the other two volumes to follow in the coming months.
The seven-track Don’t You Ever Forget Me Vol. 1, released by T.R.U. (The Real University), an imprint founded by 2 Chainz (who also appears on the raucous banger “Habit”), finds the West Side rapper determined to break out of the underground. “The title is self-explanatory for the music and I’ll get that point across in the bodies of the EPs,” he says. “I’m here, and you can never forget me… I’m on a different path.”
