  • Complete03

    This is dope, this is what hip-hop is. Big up Skillz, slept on emcee who reminds us just how dope he is at the beginning of each year. This one is one of my favorite rap ups! Keep doin your thing Skillz

  • Richelle

  • two up, two down

    i have all of them, and im impressed every year.
    i wanted to say its one of his best, but theyre all unbelievable.
    hes a gem. check the dudes other albums out

  • nothanks

    …just like this guys entire career (and I go way back), very disappointing…so much skill on the MIC, but just can’t put together a quality LP…back to ghost writing I guess…

  • Mic B

    Dope! I always look forward to these. But hey Skillz where’s that Rap Up for The Wire that was mentioned a while back.

  • oskar

    Richelle: …
    I guess i dont get this cuz im not black.
    oh well…

    yo thi isnt about being black hes just kickin facts about hip hop and politics good and bad. if u missed it u missed it. that was a dumb comment abd really had no backin since no one said “4 blacks only”

  • k-dub

    He always comes correct with the rap up’s. Main reason why he is famous. However, I was glad that he finally released another album, and it one of my fav’s of the year. Can’t wait to see THE VIDEO!!!

  • Conducta

    Richelle you are as stupid as it gets.

  • xeventhson

    All I can say, dude always comes nice with it….

  • John Robinson

    Come on man! This cat is sooooo underrated it’s stoooopid!

    Skillz went in on this one folks. Wowsers! Give this man his props like FORREAL Already!

    09 is here!

  • Something 2 say

    LMAO! This dude said ‘it’s time for a change, let’s not turn inauguration into an allstar game’ LOL I waiting on this something serious. He came through.

  • Mushface

    This dude is one of the most underrated emcees in the world!!!!!! He is a true lyrist…Just to think, he been doing this year end “rap up” since like 2002. That’s talent…More of these “so=called” rappers need to go to SKILLZ ACADEMY OF RAPPING and EARN their degree!!!

  • CriticalBEATdown

    Best Rap Up yet!

  • J Rob

    I went to sckool with Skills at Westover High in the 80′s “THE VILLE BIGUP” and got loads of respect. That is how life goes, the best one’s never get a good look, that is what’s called underground.

  • KIDpharoahe

    ever since he’s been mad hes come through correct. this dude just needs to take all his talent and put together a dope lp front to back. we’re all waitin

  • Earl Gee

    Who wuz that dumb spectator that threw a bottle at the god?Skillz keep doing yo thing

  • immaculate conception

    best wrap up yet!

  • Maad Beatz

    Mad Skillz – Skillz… Either way, he’s outspitting everyone below The Top 4… Rakim, KRS ONE, Ice Cube, Black Thought…

    I heard Mad Skillz the first time when I bought FROM WHERE???. There hasn’t been too many albums since that I can play ALL THE WAY THROUGH and be able to say here’s an album that Hip Hop is going to grow from and with.

    Ain’t no one comin like Skillz, If you Got “Kane” givin him props, Timbo “HANDS” him beats, and there isn’t anyone rhyming Lyrically like Skillz thats worth listening to. How can you SECOND GUESS WHO OR WHAT SKILLZ IS and can do to anyone on the mic.

    Any one who probably would, would be Big L. (R.I.P.)

    Skillz??? I’m waitin for The Billboard Album (“…I had a hundred songs on the Billboard List, So ask again dog, How I got your deal on my wrist…” With you rippin over them tracks like if you were spittin for FROM WHERE???

    Ha Ha!!!

  • Maad Beatz

    I’ll put my money on Skillz spittin Acapella vs. “ANYONE” you can think of, on any beat, AND… Skillz writing thier rhymes. (And Spit First) Their verse would basically be Pointless.

    HE’D BASICALLY OUT SPIT HIMSELF…

    Tell me I am wrong. OKAY PLAYER WON’T. NO ONE HERE CAN.

  • THGHTS 718KING

  • Fergus

    Gotta change those words now… “I’m like a black president, cuz zigginz ain’t seein’ me!”

  • Larry Larr

    Actually his album Million Dollar Backpack was a pretty good album. Last year I thought the exact same thing about him, Rap Up was good, video was funny but he didnt have an album, then he dropped one and I downloaded it and liked it so I bought it. I suggest anyone who doesnt think this guy can do any more then make a good rap up cop that album.

  • Maze247

    Every year I look forward to the Wrap Up. Keep it Bangin Skillz!!!

  • fuck brooklyn

  • brandi513

    glad it’s september. can’t wait for the 09 rap-up. i be itchin for it every year….

  • Staggered

    I gotta get this every year, and sorry bro i end up bootleggin it. But this is the heart of Hip-hop despite what anyone says. Hip-hop doesn’t matter if it’s a booth or a pen, it’s how you convey your story. All tha hate can stop, please, you sound stupid tellin someone to bring anything anywhere. Even if people do claim they dont pen anything they do. Wayne even admits it, even though he claims to have stopped using a pen. Freestyle doesn’t make a great artist. Mos Def has some of the craziest intellectual Free styles you can think of, his albums dont break charts… Kanye writes, and Writes for half the people you know… he gets #1 albums… think about that. Big ups Skillz, do your thang, Waitin patiently for the 2009, so much happened it’s gonna be sick, might even have to make it 10m cuz of that.
