You cannot get through the month of December without, in some way, reflecting on the year that’s ending while preparing for the year to come. Some flaunted their 2018 highlight reel across social media and are waiting to sip champagne at the stroke of midnight, while others simply want to drink the night (and this past year) away.
Per tradition, DMV-bred rapper Skillz dropped his year end recap with a special intro from “Smile” phenom Lil Duval. He reminisced on moments like Will Smith’s incredible year on Instagram and the historical Black Panther revolution.
Skillz took us back to the Royal Wedding with its first Black Dutchess and R. Kelly's confession. Kanye West's downfall, starting with his "slavery was a choice" comments, was honorably mentioned, alongside the Carters' surprise album and the #WhoBitBeyoncé scandal. Skillz hilariously said he slid in Jill Scott's DMs amid her X-rated performance and offered a somber nod to all those we lost.
Whew, how bittersweet. Stream the four-minute recap below. See y'all in 2019!
