Giving you the direct perspective from Skeme and his producer Boi-1da, "Track Breakdown" is an HNHH series that highlights a specific cut by speaking to both the artist and producer about the song's creation.
Skeme is making a name for himself not only in the West Coast, with the release of the Cali-themed album Ingleworld on December 17th. It's been quite a few years coming for Skeme, who has released a slew of mixtapes to get his name circulating prior to the release of his studio LP.
On Pistols & Palm Trees, the rapper's second mixtape, already found him collaborating with familiar faces like Ty Dolla $ign, Nipsey Hussle, Kendrick Lamar and Dom Kennedy, who these days join Skeme among L.A. rap royalty. He even had production from Boi-1da. Following that project, Skeme kept going with The Statement, and most recently, right before dropping Ingleworld, he came through with Bare With Me.
With Ingleworld, we find Skeme at his most polished and cohesive yet, while remaining true to his L.A. roots. Among the stand-out tracks are collaborations with Boi-1da. Specifically, "Bullets."
"Bullets" has yet to really receive a push from Skeme, but it definitely stands out and has been named a favorite by fans. The quick-paced record with looping melodies from Boi-1da finds Skeme in venting mode. We decided it was about time to connect with Skeme for a Track Breakdown, and considering how dope "Bullets," it was an obvious choice.
