Sir Heist: How did your artist name come about?

Rico is from Oakland so we would play fight with each other over turfs as kids and I would more than often leave some kind of scratch on him from slap boxing. He start calling me Skar and telling others to do the same so I took it and ran with it. That was way before the music was ever thought about.

Sir Heist: Where are you from?
Skar: Im from the West Coast Sacramento ,California. Im from the East side of the city Lincoln Village Neighborhood close to the Rancho Cordova area.

Sir Heist: Who were your musical influences growing up?
Skar: I was highly influenced by Lil wayne when I started rapping he had just dropped The Carter 2 and the punchlines he was saying were raw but still gangster and I was feeling how he was coming over the beats. I also listened to some of the fellow friends that I grew up around who were rapping before me. Another guy that influenced me was Reed dollaz, The Jacka, and J Stalin.

Sir Heist: How did the record come about?
Skar: The record was well overdue. Ive been knowing Prezi for a while now and he’s done well with his success it was time for us to put our minds together and create something dope for the streets. We’ve toured with each other and been in the studio multiple times due to Mozzy.

Sir Heist: What would be your dream collaboration with any rapper or producer?
Skar: My dream Collaboration would honestly be with Meek Mill. I chose Meek because he’s always caught my attention with his energy. The flow he brings and the energy behind it I really feel like it’ll be a dope Coast to Coast track. I know he raps over beats with soul and Im into that. The jacka also rapped over beats with soul and I already have a track with him he was my favorite artist.

Ive been on multiple channels and blogs over the years and they always follow up and leave dope comments. My fans still buy my hard copy cds overseas from stores and they stay tuned in with all my latest music. All of my videos and songs I’ve released on youtube have doubled if not triple the amount of likes it has dislikes. I don’t really get negative feedback a lot.

Sir Heist: What are your plans for 2020? What are you doing that others are not?
Skar: My plans for 2020 are to direct my fans to my own Vevo channel and gain the attention of an A&r or someone that can lead me to a path of success within this music industry . One thing I can say that i do that a lot of others don’t do is be versatile. A lot of people I make music with or have been around only have one sound or one style. I have a main style I stick to just so my fans can recognize me and get use to me but over the years I’ve always added something extra something different and I’ve never been afraid to reach out to someone out of my region to collab with. People are afraid to take the chance of making music with other people who bring a new sound to the table. Their afraid of a possible change and I’m not.

Sir Heist: How can your fans reach you?
My fans can mainly reach me on Instagram @Skar_34 or my email

Sir Heist: Any last words or shout outs?
Skar: I want to give a shout out to everyone who helped me get where I am today my parents especially. As well as a big shoutout to No feelings Ent, Mozzy records, and Empire for helping me with my career.
