When it comes to breaking artists, Game’s track record is very limited. Only his core fans really knew about Black Wall Street, and it seemed like, as the years went on, there was no intention of putting the label on the forefront. This is something to worry about when he announced his new label, Blood Money Entertainment (an obviously homage to Cash Money), and signed two of California’s buzzing up and comers in Dubb and Skeme. “I believe anybody could’ve did better in any situation they were in,” Skeme says when asked about BWS. In our discussion, he reassures his… continue reading
With The Block Brochure 4-6 being out, the guest features are immense. It’s hard to stand out next to artists like Rick Ross, Jeezy, Juicy J and countless others. If you rank the best guest verses, Skeme’s “Turn Up Or Burn Up” is in the top five. The video is not as turnt up as one would expect, but E-40 just got done doing a club-shot video with “Thristy.” Directed by Aplus Filmz. So what are you going to do? Previously: Video: E-40 Ft.

Kendrick Lamar’s successful debut album set up for his 2013 to be full of rewards: worldwide tours, highly-publicized guest features, Grammy nominations, etc. He certainly doesn’t get to claim the title of best West Coast rapper of the year. In 2012, he took that. Last year, though, was the rise of many up and coming California spitters that brought a lot to the table. While many have made impacts like Problem, Nipsey Hussle, Dom Kennedy and IAMSU!, it was Skeme that deserves an emphasized highlight.
Haven’t heard from these guys in a minute. Seems like they came and went after dropping their hit single. Well their back and in great fashion as the link up with west coast producer Jay Nari of Leage of Starz, Skeme, Waka Flocka with his BSM cohort YG Hootie and AD for a new joint titled “We Out Here.” Cali Swag District will deliver their forthcoming mixtape, The District, on January 1st, hosted by Adrian Swish. Listen below.
Noisey comes through with the premiere for Skeme’s “Ain’t Perfect” video. They also did a nice in-depth interview about him discussing L.A, his life growing up and his music. In this black and white visual, Skeme heads out East to New York, Rucker Park to be exact, and links up with Wale as they stroll around the area. Ingleworld is out now.

“You now in tune with the most underrated niggas in rap” is Skeme’s introduction to Ingleworld on “We Against The World.” It’s also met with boastful lyrics about being the unofficial fifth member of Black Hippy and turning down an Interscope contract (the two kind of go hand-in-hand if you think about it). For the last bit of 2013, you couldn’t escape Skeme’s grip on hip-hop. He was featured (see: killed guest features) on projects by Dom Kennedy, Nipsey Hussle, TeeFlii and The Game on top of releasing a 21-track mixtape titled Bare With Me. He’s earned the right to claim one… continue reading
