1. Byron “Skypp” Horton (f/k/a Lil Skypp) is an independent music artist. Skypp is based in the heart of the crossroads of America: Indianapolis, Indiana.
SEA nominated deejay and local tastemaker DJ Panic says this about Skypp:
“Skypp is a conscious emcee that combines the fundamental arts of story-telling and wordplay to create a unique vibe that encourages independent thinking among his listeners. He’s a very entertaining artist, providing music for the soul.”
Writing songs in multiple genres ranging from Alternative Rock to R&B, Skypp boldly manifests his versatility. Skypp founded Sophisticated Street Music to further satisfy his desire to be an all-around music mogul tuning his skills in music & video production and audio engineering.
Skypp‘s most recent project, JAFFE, was released June 24, 2016. JAFFE is titled after his childhood bestfriend, Dakarai Jaffe, who passed away in 2011. Skypp has stated numerous times how pleased he is with the album’s music and reception. JAFFE is available for download and streaming everywhere online.
2. My top 5 influences are: the struggle (family), my amazing supporters, my hunger/passion, J.Cole and last but not least, my best friend who passed away in 2011, Dakarai Jaffe. That’s where my album “JAFFE” title came from.
3. My album “JAFFE” released in June. I most recently released a new single from the album called “Bottled Water”. That record is doing tremendously well.
4. My fans inspired me to take music seriously. I just did it for fun during high school but I made so much money and had so many people who believed in me that I had to run with it. I saw the bigger picture at a young age.
5. I appreciate y’all more than I could ever put into words. Some of the things y’all tell me are unreal. Much love and appreciation. Always. Thank you!
6. Where’s the tour buses!? We’re ready for the road. We’re on The Jaffe Tour right now but it’s time to go all out with it. I’d love to tour with a big artist also.
