Atlanta rapper Skinny-C presents â€œPoloâ€, the BeatGodz-produced single fromÂ Never Hungry Always Thirsty Vol. 1, his forthcoming full-length featuring production by Rollee, BeatGodz, Ace King, godBLESSbeatz and guest appearances by Kingpin Skinny Pimp, Alan Z, Ms Green, and Slim Dub. As a result of a series of grassroots performance and fan engagement campaigns through the Southeast, Skinny-C has sold more than 10,000 combined digital and hard copies of his 2010 releaseÂ Mixtape Muzik Vol. 1: INTREPIDÂ andMixtape Muzik Vol. 2: RHAPSODY. Since then, Skinny-C has performed at the 11th annual June-teenth Festival and the 5th Annual Texas Summer Music Conference. â€œI wrote â€˜Poloâ€™ on some feelgood fly ish,â€ says Skinny. â€œIâ€™m a Polo head that stays fly but donâ€™t seek attention (never thirsty), but on this day I was cleaner than yesterday, so the universe needs to look at me because not only am I fresher than most, I also got something to say.â€
SFHH: Whatâ€™s behind the meaning of â€œBuried Treasureâ€?
SC: An attempt to escape the community made up of crabs in a bucket. Like any other city, you have your naysayers and wolves in sheepâ€™s clothing, who will act as if they want the best for you but in reality they are praying on your downfall. I know for a fact God has a bigger plan for me that I have yet to find. That plan is the Buried Treasure.
SC: As of now volume two is 90% complete. I’m not sure if there will be any other after volume two – it depends on the fansâ€™ consensus. The main difference will be production. I will still have BeatGodz on the project but there may be a few more other producers and the production from BeatGodz will be different from NTAH 1. He’s such a dope producer, I want to display his versatility on volume two.
SC: Not much of a difference other that area and population size. you got your good and your bad.
SFHH: How did you choose production for the album?
SC: No process, just whatever made me bob my head and freestyle within the first 30 seconds.
SFHH: Whatâ€™s your favorite non-rap album of all time and why?
SC: The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill. Because it consciously speaks on social issues that are still relevant today, it’s a “no skip” album (just like Never Thirsty,Â AlwaysÂ Hungry) and it encompasses multiple genres of music (r&b, soulful, and hip hop).
