Insomnia’s a pain in the ass. Believe me, I know. I’ve been up way too many times watching ridiculous infomercials until the late a.m. (Snuggies? Come on, America, we’re better than that.). But while I was watching a commercial about how to slow roast my Thanksgiving turkey, legendary lyricist Skillz was Up All Night putting his sizable talents to good use. All Night is the first leak off his next project, a soulful cut that describes the trials and tribulations of working around the clock to perfect his craft. The upbeat sample (contributed by Rik Marvel) does its job to help twist Skillz’s narrative into a full-blown autobiography (you can actually see his story develop with each stanza). The best part for the listeners of this track is the fact that Skillz already knows that the benefits outweigh the costs: “Anything worth having is worth the sacrifice, right? So I’ll sleep when I’m dead, welcome to my life.” If you like this record (which we’re sure you will), check out Infamous Quotes, due out December, 1.
