Lord Skrt’s songs easily captivate the attention of new-age audiences. In 2019 he exploded in popularity on SoundCloud and made his way to Apple Music with his single “Speed Racin’.” In the first 6 months after release, Lord Skrt gained more and more listeners and social media followers who continually asked for more content.
As his popularity progressed, Lord Skrt became the source of many news headlines, such as for rejecting an invitation from the legend herself, Ellen DeGeneres. It’s still unknown as to why he declined to go on the show, but he is notorious for doing what he pleases and it seems like the appearance was simply something he did not want to do.

In 2019, he entered the University of North Florida, although he soon changed his decision and went on a completely different journey, choosing to become a psychologist. But that didn’t last long either. Skrt ended up changing his path one more time and set his mind on something he enjoyed, arguing and law. While he worked hard to focus on his schoolwork, he wrote songs, making beats and trying to produce new vibes. He did this effortlessly and without it interfering with his school studies. He tries to be low-key in school but it has become harder and harder to go places due to so many people wanting to engage with him, take pictures with him, and get autographs.

A year later, Lord Skrt went on to host his first concert at Razzles nightclub in Daytona Beach, which earned him a new audience and more popularity among locals. His success made enough noise that he got invited to be featured on 103.3 The Vibe.

His latest, “4,” contains 11 tracks, the first letters of which spell out “Wow I need you.” Sources are not sure who this album is about or why he made it, but it has reached over 1 million plays on Apple Music.

During his recent interview with BuzzFeed Entertainment, Lord Skrt said that his music was heavily inspired by the great success of Drake.
