Skiggy Rapz (pronounced “Skid-jee Raps”) is a Dutch-born rapper and producer who’s developed a glossy, love-filled mix of hip-hop and pop. Before his first album was even realized, he won the Grote Prijs van Nederland (Grand Prize of the Netherlands), a national award for emerging artists. Skiggy used this notoriety to unveil his debut, Boat Drinks, on the Japanese label P-Vine Records in 2005. In 2007, he released another full-length, Record, as a member of Keynote Speakerz with Master Surreal. He produced two albums for Dutch rapper Diggy Dex in 2006 and 2008, and in 2009 he co-produced Diggy Dex’s “Slaap Lekker,” a number one single in the Netherlands, featuring Eva de Roovere. In 2009 he also released the Bang To The Boogie EP on Beats Broke. Serving as a prelude to his upcoming full-length Bang To The Boogie, the EP highlights Skiggy’s blending of genres, up-beat rhythms, and sing-along hooks. Skiggy hit a licensing windfall in 2010 when MTV, VH1, and FUEL TV latched onto his ever-growing buzz. He has since been featured on a slew of programs like Jersey Shore, Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory, and The Real World. The rapper has also been featured on the other side of the camera, appearing on the Dutch television program Raymann is Late. He has produced commercial tracks for McDonalds, Martini, and Samsung, and has licensed tracks to over 15 Japanese albums since 2005. Skiggy has toured extensively as a solo artist and as support, backing Diggy Dex and fellow Dutch producer Arts The Beatdoctor. His collaboration with Arts was highlighted in an official showcase at the 2009 SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas. Skiggy Rapz has also had the honor of opening for notable hip-hop legends KRS-One, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, Guru, and Kanye West.
