More on Skeme after the drop….

“A beast grows in Inglewood,” replies Inglewood-based emcee, Skeme with a somewhat arrogant grin. At a time when most thought the West Coast was lost to dance crazes and rap legends trading bars for franchise movies, a new generation was preparing for battle. Among the ranks was Skeme with everything intention on putting his city back on the map. Born Lonnie Kimble, Skeme remembers finding his passion early on listening to pioneers 2Pac and Snoop Dogg, much to his grandmother’s dismay. His undercover studying would pay off, however because by the tender age of 20, he would have seven mixtapes under his belt.

In three short years since he first dropped Skeme of Things, Skeme has managed to combine his witty wordplay and everyday struggles to create a persona distant from the West Coast rappers we are used to. Through his honesty and lyrical skill he has captured the ears of urban youth by simply sharing his story. With his father being absent until he was 14 years old Skeme turned to the streets for lessons on becoming a man. Though he ran the streets in efforts to support himself, he always knew that music would be his main ticket out of the inner city struggle in Inglewood, California. With the help of notable performances such as Sneaker Pimps 2008 and the Roxy with Paul Wall, Skeme proved that not only could he hang with the heavyweights, but that he was born to do this.

Naturally from his grind, Skeme’s buzz ensued placing him at the front of the West Coast takeover and landing features with the likes of Dom Kennedy, U-N-I and Kendrick Lamar.
The nature of this “beast in Inglewood” seems to have a snowball effect and Skeme is enjoying the ride, “I’m really just waiting on my chance to blow. Every time I go to the parties that I’m old enough to get into, I get tripped out to hear my own music playing and everybody loving it and dancing to it,” says Skeme. At 20, Skeme seems more ready than ever to take the rap game over by storm. Now with backing from multiple DJ’s in the city, Skeme’s reach is growing everyday and that only fuels his fire. “I want to make those songs that you hear 5 or 10 years later and still feel as good about them as you did when you first heard it.” Without a doubt Skeme is well on his way to doing just that.

Now, Skeme sets his sights on a much grander audience of listeners with his latest release, “Pistols & Palm Trees.” The record is an ecclectic arrangement of emotion-driven lyrics, heavy bass-laden production, and a smooth bravado of a cadence.
