Inglewood, California rapper Skeme gave insight on the current state of West Coast Hip Hop. In an exclusive conversation with HipHopDX, Skeme touched on the idea of the “Los Angeles Renaissance” as well as his relationship with Top Dawg Entertainment, his humble beginnings in music and his experiences on tour. 

“It do feel like a new Renaissance, there’s a lot of new energy," Skeme says. "New faces, nobody that was around in the old days. These are the same people I been dealing with though so it’s not a Renaissance to me, but I could see why most people say that, because we’re still new to most.”
