For the last decade one of hip-hop’s finest, Skillz, has been recapping the year in music for our listening enjoyment. In 2013, the folks at ESPN tapped the talented lyricist to recap what was quite an eventful year filled with both tragedy & triumph.
Skillz takes Michael Smith & Jemele Hill’s segment “Numbers Never Lie“ & reminds of things we probably forgot like the Lance Armstrong doping confession the Super Bowl blackout & Kevin Ware’s gruesome leg break. ESPN must have asked him to keep it mostly positive because the Blade Runner murder was a punchline waiting to happen.
Watch & listen below & keep an ear out for his hip-hop rap-up that will be worth it for his assessment of the Kendrick Lamar “Control” moment alone.
