11th Dimension

11th Dimension

Ski Mask the Slump God’s hands look like this so the post-SoundCloud rap game can look like that—seriously. The South Florida stylist’s cartwheeling delivery and ad-libs have inspired a generation of loose-shouldered artists with a preternatural knack for riding rhythm. His collective Members Only, formed with the late XXXTENTACION in 2014, has inspired left-field talents from Billie Eilish to Robb Bank$, and his 2018 debut, STOKELEY, spawned career-defining hits like “Faucet Failure” and “Nuketown” with the late Juice WRLD. A second studio album took five years to materialize. When it did, it arrived as its own hermetic trap universe. Ski Mask cut his teeth on the best-loved blog-era forums, and he recruits an all-star cast of producers to drive 11th Dimension, from similarly undersung genre architects like Bobby Raps to new innovators like Tisakorean. This means the album’s palette spans from razor-sharp supersaws to Motown-textured loops that recall fellow Floridian Kodak Black’s classic “Transportin’.” But Ski Mask’s passion for infusing modern genre-history lessons with fresh possibilities doesn’t stop at his taste in demo files. Nestled in these 21 tracks—the majority with no features, save special spots for Future, Skillibeng, and Corbin—are two new vault verses from Juice WRLD and XXXTENTACION. “Wake Up!” With Juice and “Jah’s Interlude” with X both highlight the bond three young artists shared in a line of work that can play fast and loose with its most promising talents. These songs aren’t eulogies but reflections on halcyon days through a vibrant kaleidoscope of the present. The best way to experience 11th Dimension in full? Ski Mask recommends it himself on the standout song “Shibuya”: “Let it bang.”
