Lil Skies reminisces on times he was “Dead Broke” in new video
The track is taken from his new ‘Unbothered’ project.
A few days ago, Lil Skies released his brand new Unbothered project. The 14-track body of work boasts features from Wiz Khalifa and Lil Durk, and cuts like “Excite Me” and “Dead Broke.” Lil Skies has officially released a video for the latter track, where he reminisces on the humble life he used to live:
Ridin’ with my brother to the end, that’s for sure. If you got a problem, n***a, please let me know. Shawty wasn’t with me when I was dead broke. That’s the reason why I had to let her go./ Stress on my mind, had to pour me up a four. I be getting high just to balance out the lows. Coppers on my ass so I had to get low, I would never change, I be posted by the store./ Me and Stan juggin’, used to sell a lotta dope. Say he want the good, want the white, want the snow.
The “Dead Broke” video, which has garnered over a million views in just four days, takes viewers through a visual representation of Lil Skies’ early life in just under three minutes. The Nicholas Jandora-directed visual starts off in Waynesboro, PA in the year 2010, showing a young Skies going about his day, showing scenes of his mother trying her best to make ends meet and him putting his hours in to perfecting his craft.
Lil Skies hopes for this video to be a representation of putting on for his hometown. “Waynesboro, PA does not come to mind when you think of contributions to hip-hop,” the description of the video reads. “But Kimetrius ‘Lil Skies’ Foose hopes to be that boundless rose to spring forth from the concrete.” “Dead Broke” follows visuals for “On Sight” and ”Ok” from the aforementioned Unbothered project.
