The New York rap legend, who himself is of Jamaican heritage, honors his longtime friend Vybz Kartel in some gritty bars while a photo of the incarcerated deejay flashes on the screen. The pair released the track with an accompanied dark and gritty visual co-directed by Busta Rhymes and Sam Lecca. The video saw Busta spitting in his signature flow, mixing in some Jamaican patois while being surrounded by four ladies.
“Anytime the pu**y them step inside a the place/When we pull up every single exit lock off/No matter how them a try and disrespect the thing/Me sure say every single gun a pop off/Better have yo manners make sure yo put down ever camera/Yes we do it different with the very end/And if yo have a problem unnu fi go s*** yo mother/Honor Kartel and kill yo over Skillibeng,” Busta Rhymes spits over a bass-heavy beat produced by Jamaican producer Rvssian.
Skillibeng also honored his collaborator in his second verse by sending warnings to their opps. The dancehall deejay has been doing a lot of international collaborations over the past year after hopping on tracks with F.S., Nicki Minaj, Shenseea, Ice Spice, and more.
“New thing new whip with the bulletproof skin/New choppa wid the hundred round clip/New sh*t, Corvette with the butterfly wings,” Skilli rhymes while driving in the streets in a Corvette before linking up with the “I Know What You Want” rapper who pulled up in a Rolls-Royce Phantom.
In other scenes, a female showcase her dance moves which are rare in a hardcore song like “Bulletproof Skin.” Other clips saw some men stunting on ATVs on a backstreet. If you’re a fan of Skillibeng, then you would know that he is also a biker, and he regularly includes motorcycles and ATVs in his music videos.
