Skengdo & AM join forces with Chief Keef for “Pitbulls”

28 September 2018

Skengdo and AM have gone stateside and linked with Chief Keef for a massive collaboration entitled “Pitbulls”.

The fiery track brings together the UK and Chicago Drill sounds for a game-changing link up that is sure to start shelling down clubs.

Skengdo is playful and skilful in his delivery whilst AM delivers his verses in his unique deep monotone.

Chicago rapper Chief Keef, along with Lil Reese and Lil Durk, is credited as one of the first artists to bring Drill into the mainstream. Originating from Chicago, the genre made waves for its unique trap-inspired beats and dark lyrics about the realities of life in troubled areas of the American city. The 2012 track “I Don’t Like” generated millions of views, massive radio airplay in the states and received a remix from Rap Legend Kanye West. Keef later released the high charting “Love Sosa”.

Currently, UK Drill has evolved from its American origins and artists such as Skengdo and AM are pushing the scene forward. This new release comes after their 2017 project 2 Bunny the Mixtape where both artists display their synergy as a duo as well as their individual strengths.

Following a successful year, Skengdo and AM will embark on a UK tour in December that will see them perform in London, Manchester, Bristol, Nottingham and Birmingham.
