Martin $ky has been a Chicago mainstay for years. Not only has he released a host of dope tracks and projects, he is great to see live. He recently (maybe a month or so ago, don’t quote me) tweeted that he had created a new SoundCloud account called $omebody, and initially, most people had no idea who it was. It has become apparent for most Chicago hip hop consumers that this account is, in fact, linked to $ky.
He posted his first track 4 months ago with the title of Hope This Finds You Well which is a accurate portrayal of the sound. It is very minimalistic but happy for the most part.
It seems $omebody’s side SoundCloud account will mostly be loose instrumentals, but who knows, as each song released so far has the same light blue cover. Perhaps a bigger project is in works. For now enjoy this most recent cut, Give You.
