One to Watch: Skot the Idea Drops Brilliant New EP 3 to Thrive Through
Skot the Idea is a rising American-Nigerian artist born and raised in Rockville, Maryland. He also lived in London, UK for almost a decade during his early life, where he found a love for electronic music. Blending this with his background in the US and love for hip-hop, his sound is fresh and dynamic, which is showcased on his brand-new EP, 3 to Thrive Through. Fusing his smooth rap flow with high-octane electro beats, the three-track project is perfectly executed and makes for a fascinating listen.
“This EP has begun the second phase in my 358 series. The cover art is a photo of my father in his youth in another instance in which old photos of my family have matched the energy and the message that I am trying to convey. The circle of life/history repeats whatever you would like to call it. In the first summer where it has felt somewhat safe to explore again, I made this EP as commemoration to the times that we all are having fun exploring again. 3 to Thrive Through is a project to bust out of the cocoon with.”—Skot the Idea
The EP is led by main single “When The Tune Hit”, a feelgood party anthem. Packed with infectious melodies and a huge anthemic hook, it showcases Skot’s impressive songwriting abilities and will no doubt be etched into everyone’s head after one listen. “When the Tune Hit” and the rest of 3 to Thrive Through are available to buy/stream now on all platforms.
