In the era of water downed music for commercial purposes, in other words to make money for the corporations, televisions that expose talented artist who are constantly told you are nothing unless you win this competition, and record charts only speak of you if you sell a million units (cd’s/downloads), to have an artist say ‘Hey, I want to make music my way” is definitely delightful.
“I had to really just do me; tired of fake people who talk a lot of game but don’t do anything about it. I got into this music to be heard. I feel what I do with my music; many people can appreciate and love. So my sound, my lyrics, my music, they all come from within” states Black Skramm.
Although the CD “never a greater need” is just an EP, this is like appetizer before the full course meal. Black Skramm is the chef behind this masterpiece from being the writer, lyricist, producer, and arranger. Six tracks, from beginning to the end, will have your head nodding back and forth. The only button pressing one will be doing is rewinding the track to hear the metaphor Black Skramm just dropped.
If you are into music that has meaning, something that you can hold onto, then this project from Black Skramm is for you. Standout tracks: “Love Child” which deals with the love of a father for his child. Stating how he will be there for his seed and wants to part of his child’s life with no excuses or hesitations. The joint “For the Fans” is letting his fans know he has come to give them what they want: A SHOW from beginning to the end. On the track “Feelin’ You” Skramm talks about meeting a young lady trying to court her but she rejects him. Unlike most tracks that deal with negative ideas when a woman says no, Black Skramm deals with the issues why and how he will handle the situation from a positive point of view. “Heaven Knows” Black Skramm teams up with Cousin Jonah, commence to blowing up the spot on fake hip-hop and spoken word artist who are losing the art and culture of hip-hop and spoken word.
Black Skramm music is soulful, truthful, love, reality and just plan AWESOME! For more information on Black Skramm and to purchase the EP, please visit: http://www.soulcenteredllc.com.
