Skillibeng has been blazing up the charts recently with his songs Not, Brik Pon Brik, and Coke. However, It is no secret his biggest success has come from his Mainstream Hit Crocodile Teeth. which is the moniker for his debut Album. The song cracked the billboard charts with a Freestyle from Nicki Minaj release Beam me up scotty which features stellar acts Drake + Lil Wayne adding much to the anticipation of the Skillibeng’s album.
The Album features top charting Billboard artists Popcaan, RichTheKid, StefflonDon, and Bobby Shmurda.
It is clear Skillibeng is decidedly claiming his spot as an international superstar. The anticipation was only heightened by his recent announcement that this project will be released as an NFT. Yes NFT! Skillibeng will be the first Dancehall artist to enter the world of NFTs.
