Meet new artist Loose Skrewz from Bayshore, Long Island. His style of emcee'ing is reminiscent of the Golden Era of Hip-Hop when emcees actually had to spit bars...not so much these days.
Skrewz is inspired to rhyme by dope beats and thrives off of the constant encouragement from his friends and family. "I want to win for my family, they inspire me. And a good base beat definitely puts me in the mood to write music. Being brought up around different cultures and listening to a wide genre of music heavily influenced my unique style and gave me the courage to express my thoughts through rapping when I had no other outlet."
He prides himself on keeping genuine lyricism alive through his music. "It is my position to make music that Wu Tang, Mobb Deep, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, GangStarr, Redman and EPMD would be proud of. Listening to these great emcees really puts me in the zone and makes me work harder."
Loose Skrewz released his very first EP "White Rhino" with producer/rapper Retrospec last week to rave reviews. It boasts 21 minutes of raw, underground tracks filled with hard bars that have Hip-Hop heads bopping non-stop. He even dropped science in the title of his project...
Historically, this rare mammal, the white rhino, experienced a steady decline in its population caused by uncontrolled hunting. To date there are only 3 white rhinos in existence, they are almost extinct. Is this what's happening to real emcee'ing in Hip-Hop???
"My goal is to leave a staple in Hip-Hop culture and to be known as a genuine emcee who stayed true to the craft." Stay tuned for singles and visuals from the project, "White Rhino", which is currently available on all digital music platforms for your listening pleasure.
