Skillz has made a name for himself with his infamous year-end “Rap Up” series that has spanned over the past 10 years. Unfortunately, this record will be the last of his series and is slated to appear as a bonus track on his final album, titled Thoughts Become Things.

The Virginia MC covers Frank Ocean’s coming out letter, the birth of Blue Ivy Carter, the tragic death of Whitney Houston, Chris Brown and Drake’s beef, and the re-election of President Obama; and much more.

Thoughts Become Things can be purchased now on iTunes.
