He’s all the way suavedup.

That might have been my most terrible word play to date. Forget about that line.

Today we’re talking about New London (as in Connecticut) emcee Suave-Ski, who released his project *insert suspension* “Suavedup” a few days ago. A sixteen-track album that’s an easy listen from the very first song. The album serves as an introduction to not only Suave’s rap, but also his design work for his upcoming clothing line.

Lord Suavington relies on low-key beats. A choice well-made, as his lyrics could easily stand by itself. Suave-Ski has refined his rap in such a way that he doesn’t need any hyped beats or auto-tune effects. Same as Des Brennan, whom I raved about earlier.

The relaxed hip hop album enlightens the listener with food-for-thought messages such as the line “I you sleep for eight hours you will never be rich in this country. You cannot sleep for eight hours, that’s a third of your life” on the introduction track. On track five “Suavecito” we hear Forth Worth-based J/O/E, another great rapper whom I featured earlier in the STK Weekly playlist.

Further along on the tracks “Ladykiller” and “Step Up”, we learn that Suave-Ski is a single father that worries about providing for young Suave and today’s families often falling apart. Other topics that can be heard on “Suavedup” are Ski’s diligent work ethic, his upbringing, and making the most out of the life you have. Refreshingly real! - Sign This Kid

"Rapper Suave-Ski entertains at “Live Lunch Break” Thursday"

New London, CT-reared rapper Suave-Ski understands the importance of being a great role model, instilling core values and self-esteem and caring for the emotional well-being of his son — as well as the black-and-white differences between being a “father” and a “dad.”

Suave, who just signed on to Apathy and Celph Titled‘s Dirty Version Records, documents the indestructible love he holds for his little man, while simultaneously celebrating the young man’s fourth born day in the official video for “Step Up,” produced by Teddy Roxpin. - 2Dopeboyz


Suave-Ski’s latest project, a solo album entitled SuavedUp, tells the intriguing story of the artist’s upbringing and the way he was able to take a potentially disastrous situation and turn it around with the power of his music. Not only is the project an introduction to who Suave-Ski is as a person and artist, but it’s also a way to promote his brand “SuavedUp,” which includes a clothing line that features some of Suave-Ski’s graphic designs. More than just a performer, Suave-Ski is bound to be a household name in hip hop with a lifestyle brand that spans platforms from TV to fashion and beyond.

His motivating energy and one-of-a-kind charm makes him a true artist – and one that is here to stay. - Upcoming 100


Still working on that hot first release.
