EME Representer Skales goes in hard on Mr West‘s “Monster” beats and delivers his flow effortlessly. Skales, one of the nominees for Promising Artiste of the Year at the 2010 Dynamix All Youths Awards (don’t forget to vote) has continued to impress me and is on my 2011 watch-list.
Listen to the song and read his profile & memorize the lyrics.

Skales - Monster (2.5 MiB, 9,265 hits)
That KD boy from E.D.O
You can call me Mr Capable like ma CEO
They know ma face and I aint got a video
Plus ma song is ruling every station like a D.P.O
Haters hating niggas just stop it
Everybody knows am a (modaf***ing monster)
Since you’ve been hating, nigga show me your profit
Keep turning on your hater skills while I’m off it
I’m feelin like Moses and ma rod is ma mic
Cos I’m leading all of ma people insane with what they like
And I swear that I’m the light that made the future bright
Don’t get it twisted a wrong coz this sound is right
I aint got a beef with ruggedman but I’m still sounding 9ice(nice)
I’m a star but I don’t wait for night fall to rise
A vampire but I still make it in the sun
Forget Neo in the Matrix coz I’m the one
They’ve been waiting for me but tell em that the wait is over
F***ing with emotions quick to make a lady sober
I’m the G that she’s been looking for and we aint talking alphabet
Getting better coz I think when I forget
She the type I throw some D on (Dion) no Celine
Blamin music for making me weird as I’m close to being
She said I brought with me excitement when I came within
A game I f***ed up let d new life begin
She said letting me go would be the hardest thing
Rap is a game of hard ons and I’m the hardest in
It’s so obvious I’m the definition of real
Definition of still healthy but sounding ill
I mean what kinda monster is so talented
Profit making telling the world his God-invented
Got a lot friends got a lot of fans
When he’s at a party the ladies love to dance
When his popping champagne bottles
He and a lot of celebs cut d same models
He only needs a piece of sound 2 get message across
Like his name be Hugo his a son of a boss
And I’m talking Banky and SD
You can ask them the f***ing questions you ask me
Dominating North, West, South and the East
Transformed to a human…. truth is I’m a beast.
