Skeme & Game Drive Slow on ‘No Limit’
All eyes have been on YG and ScHoolboy Q these past few months, but there’s one West Coast name that you shouldn’t overlook: Skeme. The 24-year-old MC closed out 2013 by dropping one of the best projects outta the Left Coast with ‘Ingleworld,’ a hard-nosed, trunk-rattling ode to his hometown of Inglewood, CA.
After laying low since the album’s release in December, Skeme kicks off his summer campaign by sharing this new song, ‘No Limit,’ featuring fellow SoCal spitter Game. Taking cues from Awesome Sound’s slow-crawling production, Skeme trades his high-intensity style for a more mellow, melodic delivery, even flirting with Migos’ widely-imitated triplet flow.
Known for being a bit of a chameleon himself, Game follows suit with a rapping-crooning verse about smoking that chronic and keeping his car lights dimmed. Kinda randomly, the Compton rapper also recalls his days as the Doctor’s advocate: “I told Dr. Dre in ’03 I wasn’t no gimmick / How you gon’ sell drugs and rap? N—a, that’s my business.”
Stream and download ‘No Limit’ below, and make sure it’s in your Serato this summer. While you’re at it, make sure ‘Ingleworld’ is in there, too.
