Hailing from Battersea, South London, Skeamer was raised by the old stomping ground of UK garage legends So Solid Crew: which proved instrumental to Skeamer’s musical inspiration. Paired alongside the hardships of growing up on the notorious Winstanley estate in Clapham Junction, Skeamer’s music reads like a deep, perilous character study.
Following the release of his latest ‘Black Roses’ album, a 15-track body of work with guest appearances from Potter Payper, Ard Adz, Scorcher, Snap Capone, Skore Beezy, Sai So, Burner, Wrecker, Deezy, and RM, the British rapper has delivered an album that’s filled with grit from start to finish. Backed by his collective OJB, Skeamer pulls from a variety of genres to create a versatile body of work that aids in solidifying his prolific, hard-hitting bars and soul-bound introspection.
Featured on his highly anticipated album, ‘Omerta’ is a fired-up track with features from fellow UK veterans Snap Capone, Skore Beezy, and Burner. Built over a menacing production, each emcee takes there turn to deliver a slew of hard-hitting bars, forming the ultimate wheel-up worthy, and gritty track.
Elsewhere, Skeamer has received major co-signs from industry tastemakers and radio personalities such as BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ’s including Target, Sian Anderson, Snoochie Shy and Kenny Allstar as well as Kiss FM’s Ellie Prohan and Capital Xtra’s Shayna Marie. The overwhelming support around Skeamer’s artistry all predates his album – poising his album as the embodiment of his creativity.
