In the interview, Skewby, 24, who moved to Memphis when he was in the first grade, was asked 'did being a Memphian affect his music.'
The rapper, who recently dropped new song "You Never Know" produced by Charlie White, said 'yes.'
"Absolutely, I never thought I sounded country, but everywhere I go people say I sound country... well I guess I'm always comparing it to other Memphians. You know, when I grew up, to me everybody sounded crazy and then I started sounding crazy, cause you know my parents are not from here, so I started coming here and my err's and all that were a little stronger. And that affects it and just the reality of it, Memphians are real people. In your face, they're blunt, you know and I think it just comes across in my music. I love it."
