Buffalo, New York Rapper Dat Boi Skeet drops new visual for “Lonely” produced by Drum Dummie. The video was shot in Las Vegas, Nevada during Covid, a location whose empty streets embodied the word, “lonely.” The song touches on loss, death and isolation as Skeet raps, “I lost so many people, now I don’t even cry.” Skeet visits various Las Vegas hotspots, but also takes the time to shoot scenes in front of the High Desert Prison where one of his cousins is incarcerated. Skeet raps, “bro behind the wall, I miss my dog, they need to free him quick” as he boldly stands in front of the prison entrance, sharing his pain. Skeet contrasts the brightness of Las Vegas nightlife with the dark reality of imprisonment, while demonstrating the overwhelming isolation in both, especially during Covid. 

Born and raised in Buffalo, New York, Dat Boi Skeet moved to Las Vegas at 16 and has been bicoastal ever since. 3 years ago Skeet’s friend encouraged him to take music more seriously and he did just that. Within the first year, Skeet dropped his debut project, Broke Is The Root of All Evil which included features & visuals from some of today’s most prominent artists like Moneybagg YoLil BabyNBA YoungboyYFN Lucci and many more. More recently Skeet & Dababy collaborated on Skeet’s visual for single “93.” Not only has Skeet worked with some of the biggest names in the industry, he’s also opened up for Moneybagg Yo near his home town of Buffalo. Skeet was raised on oldies and UGK, and also lists Future, Nas and Jay-Z as influences.

After facing great tragedy and continuing to see losses, Skeet used music to help alleviate the pain of his struggles. Losing his brother to suicide and losing his cousin to Covid pushed Skeet to go even harder for his loved ones who’ve passed. As Skeet looks ahead at his future, he’s got a long career ahead of him and another project on the way! Talk of The Town, Skeet’s upcoming project is dropping this Thanksgiving and includes features from Dababy, Yella Beezy and many more.
