Music Review: UniversalSkoob – ‘IndentityCrisis’

Finally we get a chance to dive into the mind of rising DMV artist UniversalSkoob. In the 8-track offering, he takes listeners into his life packed with trials and tribulations. Despite the cover art not really doing it for us, the music makes up for all of that! He taps into his journey of overcoming various challenges and his process of maintaining a hustlers spirit and mentality. He comes through swinging with the first track titled “Levelz” where he boldly speaks on everything he has learned from and how it helped him grow. My favorite track is “Life” due to its anthemic feel and descriptive lyrics. In this track, I feel like I am in his shoes succeeding through the chaos. Its entirely relatable! It is evident that life isn’t easy for most during these times so its like a track for the folks that are just trying to get by. As we approach the end of this body of work, Skoob turns up once more in “TheDifference” where once again gives us a hard-hitting anthem. In this one, he delivers a chant for the tunnel vision individuals that are staying out the bullshit and determined to level up.

Overal I recommend this project to anyone that is experiencing a shift in their life. You know that moment in between hitting rock bottom and making it to the top? I love how transparent and motivational this release is and we need more of it!
