Unbothered | Lil Skies
Working within clear definitions, ‘Unbothered’ feels more distilled than Lil Skies’ previous work, the sound of someone choosing to work with what they know. Lyrically it’s marked by pain and redemption, lingering on messages of perseverance, and renewal. He may claim to be ‘Unbothered’, but the marks of the pandemic are there for all to see on a brave, at times powerful, new album.
Ratings Game Music
here are a few songs on Unbothered in which Skies sounds like a rapper that has crazy potential, a few songs in which Skies sounds asleep at the wheel, and a few songs in which Skies sounds like all the other Lils in the game.
Whatever your opinion on Lil Skies’ music and his latest album Unbothered, it cannot be denied that the 22-year-old rapper and songwriter’s dedication, output and success is incredibly impressive.
Hit Up Ange
Lil Skies has definitely made a good return with “Unbothered” expressing to us his ruthless side but also the pain of his past while inspiring us that we can also make it out of anything that we are experiencing to the cards life has dealt with us. Welcome back Lil Skies.
Skies’ latest album certainly has more misses than hits, but the greatest moments here come from his biggest creative leaps into a new sound.
Legends Will Never Die
Outside of a couple flashes in the pan, I personally didn’t get that much enjoyment out of this album. Lil Skies’ music continues to decline further as the lyrics are vapid, the flows are subpar, the production is dime a dozen for a good majority of the time.
