This sixteen year old is going to change the way you think. When you talk about underground music coming out of the state of Tennessee, you’re mind would probably go straight to Memphis; maybe Nashville or Chattanooga but certainly not Kingsport. However young Caysen Skies is probably going to switch that up. In this newest Ilyaonthefly-directed visual for “Sumnthin”, Caysen is showing you just how in touch with his sound he really is.
Over a smooth beat this up and coming artist delivers some soulful melodies that bring forth only the best of vibes. It’s crazy how well such a young artist can convey so much depth when it comes to speaking on emotion. Skies says, “The biggest influence of the song and video was for it to just radiate love, like a full blown crush and just wanting to do right by that person.” The message comes across effectively especially with Ilya’s craft behind the lens and when it comes to editing. Soothing tints of pinks and reds lay a backdrop for the Kingsport rapper to paint his masterpiece. Ilya is only seventeen himself, and it’s impressive to see these two young kids from a small Tennessee town putting up works like this. Do yourself a favor and tap in with these two early and stick around for more to come. Check out the video for “Sumnthin” above!
