There's something about Skillit. He's hilarious, he's charismatic, he's a showman, and insanely photogenic. I've been a fan since watching his brilliant videos for Skeen and I Love Women, but when it came to being a bit more introspective or taking a topic seriously I always felt like he wasn't lyrically as comfortable as with the comedy. Here, on the second verse particularly, Skillit manages to point a finger at himself and some of the stereotypes he doesn't fulfill using a comedic tool to more serious effect, but then at times still slides back in to more expected turns of phrase. I really hope he manages to harness the traits that make him distinctive and interesting so that no matter the topic it's a Skillit classic because the guy's truly talented.
