Skiifall shares cinematic new visual for '2 Charming'

Lifted from his recently released EP 'WOIIYOIE TAPES VOL. 2: INTENSE CITY'

Following the release of his long-awaited second EP 'WOIIYOIE TAPES VOL. 2: INTENSE CITY' earlier this month, Skiifall has shared a music video for album single '2 Charming'.

Director rubberband speaks on the video: “We wanted to take '2 Charming' as a track and Skiifall as an artist and play with the passage of time.”

Mining the edges of UK grime, drill and dancehall with a distinctive Caribbean flow, the Montreal-based, Canadian-twanged rapper's recent project is an accumulation of stories and experiences chronicling his life to date, with the most prescient theme being the violent relationship between Black communities and law enforcement. 

On Christmas Day 2022, Skii’s friend Nicous D’Andre Spring died in custody after being assaulted by guards. “I didn’t want to post a picture of him or anything. I want to talk about it in my music because millions of people are going to listen to it,” says Skiifall. 

“I didn’t choose to take part in this narrative — it was given to me by the government and the schools they send us to, the rules they give us," he adds. "They keep us on a path where it’s difficult to succeed.”
