Skrilla UGQ * UnderGroundQueen* Is a female artist from Bristol UK who first came on the scene in 2012 with the release of her mix ‘The Warm Up’ which was followed by her first official mixtape ‘Certified Queen’ in 2013 which was hosted by DJ Melody Kane. To date Skrilla UGQ has been featured on many established blogs and national/international mixtapes (sbtv homegrown mixtape, unsigned hype, new mobo music).
Skrilla UGQ is all about representing for the Queens (Kings&Queens). Why fit in when you were born to stand out! Stand for what you believe in, even if it means standing alone! As an artist Skrilla often speaks on topics that some may see as controversial or not being in line with the current trends. Skrilla UGQ says “I’m all about self love, respect and balance. For me “Queen is more than a title, It’s a way of life”. It’s how you feel and how you see yourself. It’s the positive energy you bring, your awareness and your message! Just like her hero’s Skrilla doesn’t do it to be great, she does it because it’s necessary. #QUEENWAVE
