Skizzy Mars

Skizzy Mars (born Myles Mills) is an MC based in Manhattan who specializes in melodic, slightly left-of-center rap. Born and raised in Harlem, he got into modern rock bands, later immersed himself in the output of rappers like Kid Cudi and Kanye West, and traced back to A Tribe Called Quest. While still a teenager, he uploaded “Douchebag,” a track that caught some attention and prompted him to expose more material that attracted a publishing deal. A couple mixtapes, Phases and Pace, followed in 2013 and 2014, respectively. The Red Balloon Project, a seven-track EP supported by major distribution from WEA, was released in February 2015 and debuted at number 35 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Alone Together, Skizzy’s proper debut album, followed in April 2016 with appearances from JoJo and Rome Fortune, among others. It landed at number 50 on the Billboard 200. That same year, he appeared with Jasmine Thompson on Vice’s “Steady 1234” single, later collaborating with Take a Daytrip on 2017’s “She Knows.” The following year, Skizzy issued the vulnerable are you OK? EP, which featured the singles “American Dream” and “2006.” Months later, he teamed with Prelow for the collaborative set I Can’t Take Me Anywhere. In 2019, he released the full-length Free Skizzy Mars, which featured guests 24kGoldn, Yoshi Flower, and Trevor Daniel.


Brake is the alternative voice you’ve been looking for. This is music for the misfits – if you’ve ever felt down or felt like you didn’t quite fit in, this is the soundtrack to your life. Blending the attitude of early western music and emo influences with a unique cocktail of ukulele, rock, and blues, Brake makes music to get lost in.
