Rapper Skizzy Mars released a new EP, “I Can’t Take Me Anywhere,” with singer Prelow Thursday, Nov. 29. The album contains nine songs and was produced by music technician Matt Walsh. Mars and Prelow handle all the vocals.

“The album was made entirely by the three of us, every aspect of it,” Mars said via Instagram. “We recorded it over the summer — some in New York City and some in Los Angeles.”

The album has two main focuses, being young and having your heartbroken. On the album’s seventh track, ‘Way Back,’ Mars makes a plea to an old love when he raps:

“I hit the road; you stayed at home; thought we could handle the distance; it slipped away; I said some things to you; I’m asking for forgiveness.”

The album continues this theme throughout.

“This album has a special place in my heart,” Mars said. “It will for sure put you in your feels and is super easy to relate to because, unfortunately, most of us have dealt with heartbreak in one form or another.”

Mars last visited Ohio when he performed in Columbus in October. He has not been to Cleveland since he performed at the Grog Shop in 2016 but said he hopes to be back sometime soon.

“I loved my time in Cleveland — it’s a great city,” Mars said. “The crowd at the Grog Shop showed so much love. Hopefully next time I’m in town it’ll be at (an) even bigger venue, and we can rock with even more people.”

“I Can’t Take Me Anywhere” is now on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Tidal, Soundcloud, Amazon Music or YouTube.
