In a recent interview with Complex, Ski Mask the Slump God spilt the tea about his new album ‘Stokeley’, which he interestingly opens by singing instead of rapping.

“A big part of what gave me the confidence [to sing], which is sad to say, is X passing,” he said about late friend XXXTentacion. “He just told me that I had to step up a lot, even just in music in general, because I knew I could do it. But I just always sold myself short.”

Check out the full interview over on Complex.
