Skeme – Paranoia (Mixtape) mp3, zip download:
The Duke is back! With two projects under his belt this year — March’s Before 4eva and October’s One Night Only EP — Skeme caps off 2016 with a third: Paranoia.
Following a series of Instagram posts that featured the project title on vintage photos of Tupac, Cash Money, Jay-Z & UGK, Allen Iverson, and others, the Ingleworld emcee comes through on his word and delivers his Paranoia mixtape.
Outside of Lil Uzi Vert and an un-credited verse on “Holy Grail Flow” (which doubles as an “Oversick” sequel!), The Duke mans the 12-track project himself over production from Don Cannon, Sean Momberger, Slade Da Monsta, Lyle LeDuff, Narcos, Phenom Da Don, Go Grizzly, Maaly Raw and CU Beatz.
Off the first listen, “No Fake” and “Star Is Born” are my favorites. But Skeme is really rapping his ass off on here. “Obsession,” “Shut Up,” all fire.
