some can be funny occasionaly (rare), and some can even drop some knowledge (very rare), but for the most part skits are incredibly lame and unnecessary.

for instance, that skit at the end of come get me, 'hydro drops' that shit's mad lame.

skits IMO have little to no effect in an album
first couple times i listened to Clientele i didnt skip a track because theyre pretty good skits
the Ironman theme song intro, the "wu-tang clan and ironman" singsongs, the basehead skit, the 'who would u fuck?' skit, and of course the Clyde Smith outro (u know....where he talks bout 50 an watever)
pretty good skits that compliment the album big time IMO....but of course these days i find myself skipping most of em
dont let skits get in the way of ur listening experience

peace

No way. Striving for Perfection and Shark Biters are classic skits.

I love skits they add color to an album, but you can tell when someones album isn't strong when they have skits to fill space

What about the skits before Glaciers of Ice, Spot Rusherz and Wu Gambinos??? I agree that the others r dope but these are just senseless.

"ayo meth where my killa tape at?...............niggas came over 40s and blunts son.."

hahahaha not technically a skit but that one's probably my favorite.

some are good, most i would be glad to see go. like on beneath the surface, they dont do anything for me. the record label one is true and all i guess but i dont care for it

skits are trash. if an artist wants to make the total album time longer, take out the skits and let the beat play out longer after the verses. fuck skits.

Some skits are good most are awful

Supreme Clientele the basehead skit is awsome, where my killa tape is classic too

Fuck a skit. Most are useless and fuck up the flow of the LP. Just give me the music

depends on how they are used like on de la soul's - 3 feet high and nwa's - niggaz4life the skits were well used and give the album a kind of continuation to keeps the listener tuned

when its done well a skit can add alot to the album but when not done well they mostly suck

when they offer a good transition between songs they help, but most try to be funny and end up being mad lame

1 or 2 skits on an album are alrgith if they are short and good..............but like on KANYE WEST COLLEGE DROPOUT and OUTKAST albums there are way to many fuckin skits, and take away from the records.........like I like to put on an album and listen to it the whole way though, with out having to skip fuckin lame skits.

Naw, skits are ill... if they get creative and shit.. but some don't know what the fuck to do and just do it because others are doing it.. so it comes out wack.

Most skits suck. But some have been cool, like the intro to Liquid Swords. I'm not sure if that's considered a skit though. Goretex's solo album would have been better without all those short skit type things all over the place.
