Skizzy Mars returns today with the release of his newest single, “No Advice.” The track is also joined by a new companion visual, streaming now at Skizzy’s YouTube channel. Additionally, Skizzy announced his new studio album, Free Skizzy Mars will be released later this summer.
“No Advice” is Skizzy’s first solo material since his joint project with labelmate Prelow, I Can’t Take Me Anywhere; the 9-track collaborative project was released in November of 2018. I Can’t Take Me Anywhere follows Skizzy Mars’ last EP, “are you OK?” which includes hit singles, “2006” and “American Dream,” the latter of which was joined by a companion video that premiered on HypeBeast. “American Dream” was also featured on the soundtrack for Madden NFL 19.
NYC native, Skizzy Mars earned instant buzz with his first single, 2011’s “Douchebag,” and has since made his bones as one of contemporary rap’s most eclectic new stars. The Harlem-based MC – known to his family as Myles Mills – followed “Douchebag” with the powerful “Profound“ as well as a pair of much-talked-about mixtapes and increasingly popular live appearances as both headliner and support to such stars as G-Eazy, Logic, and Ty Dolla $ign.
Highlighted by chart-topping tracks like “Time (Ft. G-Eazy & Olivver the Kid),” “The Red Balloon Project” EP dropped in February 2015 and proved a straight-up sensation, debuting at #4 on Billboard’s “Top Rap Albums” chart before peaking at #35 on the overall SoundScan/Billboard 200. A 33-city headline tour followed, highlighted by sold out shows in Los Angeles, Dallas, and Skizzy’s own NYC.
Skizzy has also received a remarkable range of press coverage, with features in such outlets as The Fader, NYLON, Complex, i-D, Pigeons & Planes, and HypeBeast, as well as an appearance on the premiere installment of XXL’s “Ante Up” podcast.
