Skeme – Inglewood 3 Review

This album is a deeper cut than the last installment of this series, leading to a closer connection to the rapper. Skeme shows that he can express his feelings as well as his desires on a song and with a fresh tone in his voice.

The production is varied with more sombre offerings than you would normally find. The beats tend to be more mellow and less aggresive which helps to show a newer side of Skeme with his content. Maybe a few more pumped up beats could have balanced the project out a bit more, but the new side of Skeme does a great job of filling any space that the listener finds.

The lyricism is good with the different techniques accentuating the story telling aspect of the songs. Skeme is not quite as complex as he has been on previous efforts but with the content being so centred on his own personal adventures it is best he focused on how those affected him and getting that point across. He has chosen his words well that there are no real problems with the rhyme side of things.

The features do a great job of having a point of comparison to Skemes own writing. Each has a good effort and thier verses do a fantastic job of making each song very cohesive as well as pushing Skeme to new areas of rap. maybe some singing guests could have shown another dimension of Skeme, but he has chosen those who would work well on this album.

Overall, this album is great if you like Skeme and wanted to delve deeper into his psyche. If this is your intro to Skeme, then this is an introduction that will stick with you for the personal connection.
