He’s definitely an artist who has a lot of talent and potential, and he’s here to stay.

Keep reading to learn more about SK1NANDBONEZ and his journey in music through a recent interview.

What is your artist name? What is your real name? How did you get your artist name?

My name is Bobby but I go by SK1NANDBONEZ. I had a couple different names I tried to go by, but nothing really stuck like that one. That name really came from being skinny all my life, everybody used to call me Stix and Skinny Bones but … I was like that’s lowkey corny I need something smooth that stands out a little bit. That’s basically how I came up with the name.

At what point in your life did you decide to pursue a career in music?

Music was always something I had a passion for and wanted to do.  My mama got raps I was writing in the 4th grade put up with all my other little arts and crafts from growing up, I used to get cussed out because of it sometimes. She would say, “You can memorize those raps, you better memorize them spelling words!” I started doing freestyles in the car and other little social media challenges and was getting a nice following from that but I didn’t really start taking it seriously until the people around me really sat me down and told me like, “you really hard and got the potential to take it to the next level.”

Has your upbringing played a role in shaping who you are and defining your sound today? If so, how?

I feel like it did play a role in making me the way I am and my sound, because my mama had me when she was young so we really grew up together in a sense. And my mama cool as hell, she didn’t really shelter me but she didn’t play either. She allowed me to live and learn from my own mistakes and hers but she also disciplined me when it was needed. She was a single young mama and my pops was locked up during different periods of my life when I feel like young boys need their fathers the most. Our relationship is good though, that’s my dog and now that I’m older and see how the system is set up, I understand more so I don’t hold that against him. I probably come off as arrogant or cocky sometimes but thats because I really taught myself everything, I put in the hours and the work, I was recording myself running back and forth from the booth to the computer, I hopped on youtube and started teaching myself how to engineer. I know how good I am. I sacrificed a lot, I invested so much money — even missed meals to get to where I’m at now and I’m still not where I wanna be. So that’s why some say I have an arrogant/cocky sound because I know how good I am, I’m hungry, and I’m still having fun with it.

How would you describe your sound to readers who may not be familiar with you?

I have a harmonizing melodic rap sound. I listen to a lot of oldies and R&B, so thats where a lot of my melodies come from and as far as rap I grew up on Tupac, Scarface, Biggie so they influence my sound. And I used to stay up watching battle rappers and Freestylers like Reed Dollaz, NH, Meek, and all of them and they would all say clever things to make you rewind it like hold up … So they had a big influence on me as well.

What ultimately inspired you to dedicate yourself to a music career?

I did a freestyle to Tyga song “Taste” and it went viral on twitter and Tyga even saw it and we talked through DMs for a second but I didn’t really have any music. I only had my freestyles, so the convo was short but he followed me. After that, a couple other artists from the city that weren’t really big worldwide, but big where I’m from started showing love so I was like I could really do this, I know I can make it work .

What’s one reason you are passionate about music and what inspires you?

I feel like it’s in me because it came so natural. I don’t really come from a music family but I have family members who were and still are in the music industry and have had some success with it. I honestly can’t explain why I’m so passionate about it. Sometimes when I’m in the real world I feel out of place but when I go in [the booth] and record, I feel like I’m home, like I belong there. What inspires me most though is when people tell me how much they can relate or how my music got them through something — because life is hard and everybody goes through things. Some people handle it better than others though, but when people tell me my music helped them get through a rough time it makes me feel good.

Emerging artist, HOLY SVN makes music that combines a wide variety of influences, and on the release of his latest studio album, Can’t Fake What’s Authentic, he delivers a perfect example of his rich, diverse, and relatable sound.  This project displays his many sides and shows he isn’t afraid to embrace vulnerability.

While truly being an expressive performer, not only in terms of deeper song meanings, but also in terms of the creative process, this project shows his unique take in hip-hop, and it definitely doesn’t sound like your average rap. His aim is to reach people who can feel what he feels…Those who constantly put others before themselves and end up with the short end of the stick, and folks who struggle with mental health.  He hopes his music can genuinely reach someone and help them understand that they are not alone, and tough times are temporary.
