"Not Like This"

"Good job. What stands out most to me are your lyrics & performance; what you convey & how you convey it. While still keeping a street image, you manage to still be vunerable; share your struggles & frustrations, and expressing that you don't want your life to continue or end with the current state of affairs. On the track side you have a head noddin' beat. Relatable subject matter; many can identify. Good flow on the rap." - TAXI

Feeling a bit camera shy


Skeet LoC, born Sheldon Crain, was raised in a West Texas Panhandle flatland city name Amarillo, an area not known for its hip-hop community. However, determination, perseverance, and persistence on his behalf, has broken a few barriers to expose the rap scene in Amarillo.

Fascinated with music at an early age, Skeet started writing his own songs in the 5th grade. Performing only in his room in front of a crowd of none, his love for music only grew deeper and stronger, but as the saying goes,” No one is immune to the trials and tribulations of life.” Losing his mother to cancer devastated him, just as it would any nine year old kid. Tension between him and his father lead him to move in with his grandmother in what is considered to be the roughest neighborhood in Amarillo, North Heights.

Caught up in gangs and the street life, instead of graduating at 18 and receiving a high school diploma, he received a prison sentence for delivery and possession of drugs. With nothing but time on his hands, Skeet wrote. He wrote about his pains, he wrote about his fears, his feelings and his life, pouring his heart out on paper with a pen. After receiving many compliments and encouragement by fellow inmates, and guards, Skeet decided to pursue his music career wholeheartedly. Upon his release, his tenaciousness to make music and get it heard was uncanny. Overcoming many adversities and devastating setbacks he realized he was destine to shine.

Starting his own independent record label, Str-8 Out Da Lab Productionz, Skeet self produced and released his demo CD “Tha Demo” in 2003. The release grabbed the attention of many, including Flip Ya Wig Records co-owner and artist, The Popper, who invited Skeet to guest feature on the Flip Ya Wig Family Compilation, which was released in 2004. The head nodding track “Ridin & Swervin” which was produced by Skeet featured two of Alabama’s up and coming rappers, K. Digga and Kamu. October 2005 marked the release of the once again self produced debut CD, Skeet LoC’s “Destin 2 Shine, Tha Album”, sixteen songs with lyrics that grab you and beats that hold you. While keeping a street image, Skeet managed to still be vulnerable and share his struggles and frustrations in life.
No stranger to the stage, Skeet has opened up shows for Xscape, 69 Boys, Coolio and most recently Z-Ro and Chamillionaire.

With momentum in his favor, the future for Skeet LoC and Str-8 Out Da Lab Productionz, is just that, DESTIN 2 SHINE.
