Skipp Whitman, a veteran emcee originally from Brookline, Massachusetts, and now calling Los Angeles home, continues his decade-long musical journey with his latest project, California.

California is a collaboration with Atlanta producer Spittzwell. Despite Spittzwell’s Atlanta roots, the production on California embodies a quintessential West Coast vibe. Skipp is unabashedly honest, yet light hearted making this a fun listen. Skipp’s laid-back swagger adds to the vibes as he delves into personal relationships, his relationship with weed, and life in California without a car . Each track feels like an honest conversation, as Skipp pulls the curtain back on himself. Spittzwell’s masterfully supports Whitman’s efforts bringing a vibrant West Coast flavor.

Whitman enhances the project by featuring a diverse group of artists, including HMZA, Francois the Great, Jeremy Jones, Jarren Benton, 4IZE, Emmitt James, LicFont Shanton, Junior Lledo, and Jamai Fisher. Among these, La Bell’s performance on “Love” stands out, showcasing a mix of charisma, wordplay, and heartfelt poetry that will leave listeners eager to explore more of her work. Skipp balances things out with classic, yet playful hard hitting boom bap, via “Introverted”.

California is another solid release from Skipp Whitman evoking carefree laid-back summer vibes.
