Episode one sees him giving us a run down of the first few lines of 'Undercover Superstar' and why he had to do his own spin on it.
"When I heard this song I was like wow, this song really talks to me, especially with my position right now within the South Asian Music scene" he says of Lupe's original.
Delving deeper into the meaning behindhis version of the song, Skilly reveals his troubled youth and his thoughts on the restrictions South Asians place on themselves. In the track he says 'I free them folks that reside on reservations' and strongly believes that as a community we create our own restrictions and that we "forget about our dreams and desires".
