"Water" is an adlib that many music fans love to say out loud. The artist who most famously coined the adlib is none other than Ski Mask The Slump God. Stokeley Clevon Goulbourne was born in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and started rapping at a young age.
His initial rose to fame came along with his best friend XXXTentacion (Jahseh Onfroy) when they met in jail. They both decided that music and rap was what they loved and was talented at. After they were both released, they went on to form the collective group Member Only in 2014.
Ski is underrated by many, but he is a prominent name in SoundCloud as he was a part of the SoundCloud era. Ski is mainly known for his rhythm, versatility, and ability to rap at extreme tempos. He is also known for his cartoon-inspired instrumentals and his ability to carry any feature he's on.
A controversial opinion, but Ski Mask The Slump God is also granted the title of the King of Rolling Loud. Whenever he performs, he knows how to bring energy not only from his performance but with the crowd as well. Also a loyal best friend, Ski always makes sure to give a shout-out to his late best friends, Juice Wrld and XXXTentacion.
