New York Post: "An 11-year-old rapper from Long Island who appeared on “America’s Got Talent” this year is now spitting bars for a good cause."
Daily Voice: "The tween is driven by an 'insatiable thirst to bring back old-school hip-hop and make a mark in the industry, with influences from hip-hop greats like Nicki Minaj, Drake, Nas, Rakim, and many more.'"
Manhattan Digest: "My single “Haters” is about showing my haters that I don’t care what they think nor say, I’m just gonna keep doing my thing. My other single “Long Way To Go” is about us all coming together to try and end gun violence. It’s a terrible tragedy going on in the world and we have to put an end to it. I’m spreading the message through music and hopefully people will learn from it."
The Hype Magazine: "Sharp beyond her years, Sky’s awareness and understanding of the state of emergency we are experiencing in our communities behind gun violence, is amazing."
Neufutur: "Sky Katz is the rare example of a rapper that can be young and come forth with a taut flow that easily tattoos itself deep into the mind and hearts of listeners. The production of her original track Party Ain’t A Party provides ample highlighting for Katz’s confident lyrics."
Code NYC Magazine: "NY’s own Sky Katz is already making HUGE waves in the entertainment industry at a very young age!"
Jamspehere: "With a confidence and lyrical flow of a seasoned MC, the young star reaches way beyond her years in the gripping new track that delivers an intelligent and compelling look at the current state of affairs."
TV Grapevine: "This past season on America’s Got Talent showcased several notable acts. One of my favorites was Sky Katz, the rapping eleven year old. Although she didn’t win, she impressed the judges and America alike with her talent, personality and overall mature demeanor."

Doing another 180-degree turn from the ferocity of her recent “Rockstar” release- “Beautiful Girl” reflects both Sky’s confidence as well as her continual drive to follow her dreams as she raps “That’s me, pretty little thing, pretty little purse that’ll match my bling // Love the way the shoes compliment my jeans , I never let a day interrupt my dreams” continuing “And I just wanna star in a fashion show, on the runway everywhere we go // Top model with a big gold crown, so when I come through you're gonna hear that crowd, and they get LOUD LOUD LOUD! Daddy little girl I’ma make you proud” with a true honesty that shows while she may be rising in fame, she’s still a little girl with big dreams!
Along with balancing the recording studio, interviews, and performances- Katz is also a star basketball player in Long Island and is currently on 3 different traveling teams. Past performances also include showcases at the Long Beach NY’s Allegria Hotel, Brooklyn’s 5 Spot, Camp Chipinaw in Swan Lake NY, the “Light Up Larchmont” Holiday extravaganza, and the Healthy Guru Expo at Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan.
