Last night the pre-order for Skizzy Mars‘s The Red Balloon Project went up and with it came a brand new song, “Do You There,” featuring Marc E. Bassy (also known as Marc Griffin from 2AM Club). The song is just gorgeous. My favorite thing about it is that Skizzy is barely even rapping on it–yet it’s undoubtably a rap track. The transition between the chorus and verses are so damn seamless.
February 3rd is when the project will be released, and that is when it all changes for Skizzy. Because for whatever reason to be a legitimate artist, you need a successful debut project on iTunes (except Chance The Rapper, he is the exception). Right now, the project is sitting pretty at #6 on the iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap charts, but let’s get it higher. It’s time to pay a little bit for all of those free tracks.
