Ski Mask the Slump God is a Florida native rapper and a songwriter who came to the public eye in 2017 by his two hits „Catch Me Outside“ and „Babywipe“.
Another thing that gave him reputation was his collaboration with a very controversial rapper named XXXTentacion.
He was born as Stokeley Clevon Goulbourne on April 18, 1996, in the town of Fort Lauderdale, in Florida, United States.
His family came to the states from Jamaica so he is of Jamaican origin. He grew up listening to hip-hop from a very early age and his favorite rappers were Busta Rhymes, Wu-Tang Clan, and Lil Wayne.
As for the female side of hip hop, he was a big fan of Missy Elliot and he later even made a remix of one of her songs.
He grew up in a house where Jamaican music was played all the time because his parents loved it very much and used all the time they could to listen to it.
As a kid, he moved very often and had lived in Brooklyn, New York, in Atlanta and Jersey so we can say that he has been all around and learned about the rap music in many cities.
Stokeley’s father was also a rapper. His stage name was „Sin City” and he always made Stokeley write his own verses and music, trying to awaken love for hip-hop in him. And he succeeded because he soon became a huge fan of hip hop.
In 2013, Stokely ended up in juvenile detention. It was a minor delict: a possession of weed worth $10.
While being in this detention he had met XXXTentacion and became a very good friend with him.
After both of them got to know each other well in detention and learned that they are both into hip-hop, they have continued their collab after they were released out.
They have decided that they will try to break into the world of hip hop together. This was a very brave decision and what was very important is that they were supportive of each other and wished the best for the other half.
Stokeley’s first decision after he was released from detention was to create a rap group, alongside XXTentacion. This was a huge decision and they felt as if it was going to be the right thing to do.
They made up with the name „Very Rare” and created their first song. It was titled „Catch Me” and it could be downloaded from SoundCloud, a known music streaming service.
In 2015, Glouburne made a collaboration tape with his friend XXTentacion titled „Members Only Vol. 1“.
He also co-founded „Members Only” collective with XXTentacion. This tape was the first in the series of a mixtape called „Members Only Vol 2″ and „Members only Vol 3″.
Ski mask Goulbourne has released several songs through SoundCloud such as „Catch Me Outside” where he used the music from his favorite female singer Missy Elliot and her hit song „She’s a Bitch“.
Missy liked the music and the song and spoke about him in a very positive way. The song was well received amongst the public too and finally garnered gold sales.
He was invited to the Rolling Loud Festival twice and he had great performances both times.
He has also released several songs with more known hip-hop artists such as Lil Yachty, Lil Peep and Offset. This was a huge thing because all of these artists have a bunch of followers and he was gaining a social media following as well because he was working with them.
His favorite producer was Timbaland and he got the chance to work with him which was a big thing and satisfaction for him.
In 2016, Ski Mask finally released his debut mixtape named „Drown in Designer“ which held hi single „Take a Step Back“.
The single was a big success and was certified Gold a little time after. „Where’s the Blow“ was the 2nd single released from the tape.
In 2017 he signed a contract with Republican Records later which resulted in his first commercial mixtape „You Will Regret“.
In 2018, his 3rd mixtape titled „Beware the Book of Eli“ was released, again by Republic Records, although some of it could be taken from SoundCloud in the beginning.
This tape was featured by Rich the Kid and Danny Towers. It came to No. 50 on US Billboard 200 and N0. 28 on US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
This album revealed a hit single titled „Do I Habe The Sause”. In the summer of 2018, he has entered the XXL’s Freshman Class of the Year.
His first studio album came out in November 2018 and it was named „Stokeley“. It went very high on the charts, coming to No. 6 on the Billboard 200 Chart.
The lead singles from the album were „Faucet Failure“ and „Nuketown“. The second one was featured by Juice WRLD.
In January 2018 he has released his new single „Poltergeist“. It was a huge hit and many people felt like this was going to bring him many awards. It sort of did help since he got a new deal soon.
In 2018 he again gained a spot in XXL Freshman Class. In 2017 he signed a big deal with Republic Records.
He has an Instagram account with over 4 million followers but has only 29 posts on it. The account is simply called Stakeley.
He collaborated with a lot of rappers and one of his girl collabs was with Madeline TYO on their single “Just Like My Piss”.
As for his personal life he lives in New York.
He is involved in a feud with Rob Stone, a San Diego native rapper.
In April 2017 Ski Mask was assaulted on the stage and even pushed off from it. The person who did it is an associate of Rob Stone.
This was the reason why Rob couldn’t continue Designer’s Outlet Tour. In the summer of 2018, he was having a concert in Texas when he asked for a minute of silence for his friend XXTentacion who was shot to death a few months earlier.
A man in the crowd was annoyed by it so he yelled „Fuck X, that woman beating piece of shit!“ which outraged Ski Mask and made him so angry that he motivated the other people in the crowd to beat that man.
While they beat him he sang one of X’s songs. The security tried to escort the beaten man outside.
It seems that he has forgotten how XXTentacion have rejected his invitation to work on a song with Ski.
XXTentacion even stated, „I am going to destroy all of those rappers, none of them are friends to me”.
It was the year that XXXTentacion gained serious assault accusation and was even took into house arrest.
In March 2018 he has revealed that he has a huge health issue and that he tried to avoid the problem for some time but this year he has to have surgery to finally fix it. He had a heart surgery which went well but he had to recuperate for a while.
Some of his enemies stated that he has no heart condition and that he pulls publicity stunts.
He has tattooed the name of his mixtape „You Will Regret“ on his forehead.
He listens to all kinds of the genre from rock to metal and classical music. He admitted that he sometimes listens to Adele.
He confessed that he was addicted to Xanax when he was younger and his name „Slump God“ probably came to him because of taking too much of it.
He drinks but he is very particular about it because he drinks only Hennessy Cognac.
He is a big fan of Gucci clothed and likes to wear it but he especially likes Yoshi Yamamoto brand which is a quite exclusive and expensive brand.
He has his own brand in sales so he likes to wear it too. It is named „Revenge“ and has a lot of different merchandise included in it.
He has a lot of tattoos all over his body and has one also under the eye. He has a lot of them dedicated to his former hip hop group.
He once said in public that he wants to die at the age of 27.
