Here’s What You Need to Know About Rising Artist Skrilla:

Hailing from Lawrence, Massachusetts, Liam Amparo–professionally known as Skrilla–has been rising to the top of the hip-hop game as an established producer.

His aggressive NY drill and melodic/nostalgic component beats have been grabbing the attention of many artists, landing him placements such as “Have Nots” by Jay Critch and “Bassline” by Jay Gwuapo. 

Music is something that is intrinsic to humanity and is often passed down from generation to generation. The same holds for Skrilla, as he considers his family his most significant source of inspiration. His friends and cousins exposed him to various types of music at a young age, which helped him determine his sound. 

Skrilla began his musical career in 2017, DJ’ing events and get-togethers. Slowly, however, he realized that he would not only enjoy giving a new twist to some of his favorites but also making his music. So, in 2020, Skrilla began to make beats at FL Studio, using the songs he would spin as the early inspiration for the beats he would later create. 

The music industry has always been a place that tests an artist’s patience and passion, as frequently, the stress and competition of the industry make it challenging to avoid burnout. However, Skrilla chose to combat this with an optimistic attitude and a determination to stay away from things that hamper your success. He further adds, “You can’t let people limit your ability and where you’re able to go. You gotta trust the process and, most importantly, God. You gotta build your empire brick by brick and people who aren’t contributing gotta hit the door.”

Skrilla was also inspired by other artists who have already trailblazer a path towards success in the industry. Artists such as Chief Keef, Pop Smoke, Gunna, ABoogie, and Lil Durk showed Skrilla how to make it big in his way. 

Since his debut, Skrilla has continued to work on many projects, landing placements with Fivio Foreign, Rowdy Rebel, Don Q, and more. Skrilla has also been building his connections in the industry by collaborating with other producers such as LS, Lil Chris, Shottie, La Source, 007, among others. He recently signed a major management deal with Mike Berg & Justin Merrimanat MiamiMusicMGMT & a co-publishing deal with Beatstars under Sony Music Publishing and has a lot of exciting announcements coming down the pipeline.

The future certainly looks bright for Skrilla, who hopes to claim one of the top spots within the global music scene and leave a lasting legacy that includes plans to set up festivals where he not only plays his own hits but also creates a platform to help other rising artists reach their goals.
