Featured Artist: Rhyme Scheme

Us: What was your childhood like?

Rhyme Scheme: Growing up in Detroit has given me the will to succeed. My childhood was filled with many joyful moments and harsh realities. Family support and a strong background have allowed me to become a diamond in the rough. Overall, it was the template for my success and work ethic today. As a poet, I started creating rhyme patterns as a form of therapy when I was in college. Later, my “Rhyme Schemes” evolved into freestyles. My poetic justice garnered a lot of respect and attention. I mastered the art of storytelling in my poems. From there the name evolved into Rhyme Scheme.

Us: What inspired you to start making music?

Rhyme Scheme: As mentioned earlier when I was in college I started writing poems as a form of therapy, free-styling and creating rhyme patterns. I was put to the test when I returned to Detroit, MI. I would freestyle in the barbershops with other local artist and started gaining a lot of attention. I displayed a unique form of rhyming will using other languages. I was encouraged to pursue my career in Hip-Hop.

Us: Who are your biggest influences and why?

Rhyme Scheme: While growing up I listened to all kinds of music but my biggest influence has always been Hip-Hop. The first Hip-Hop song I could remember was “It Takes 2” by Rob Base. The music was fun and not corporate driven. Hip-Hop was the anthem for our childhood. Artist such as Nas, KRS-One, 2Pac, Biggie, Rob Base, and Rakim displayed the template of a Hip-Hop artist.

Us: What do you want your fans to feel when they hear your music?

Rhyme Scheme: I would like fans to experience the true essence of Hip-Hop when listening to Rhyme Scheme. I would say my sound is a blend of old school Hip-Hop that has a modern feel. Bringing back the boom bap sound with today’s beats. I present a message and ways to reach listeners personally.

Us: What can we expect from you? What are you working on? What do you have coming out?

Rhyme Scheme: 2014 has been a busy and rewarding year. “Business Over Pleasure” featuring Young Noble and Yukmouth dropped at the number 2 spot on the iTop Charts for the US on October 15 and was released on Smoke A Lot Radio hosted by Yukmouth; which aired on BReal TV. The Legendary DJ Ron G interviewed me on October 21 saying “love the energy on your tracks! You don’t hear music like this anymore.”

I have been chosen as Artist of Tha Month on Soundz Taight – Tha Indie Spot, featured on the cover of The Underground Fix Magazine, BWD magazine, included in the XXL issue with G-Unit on the cover, featured in the A&R Report of Urban magazine and the fall/Winter issue of Blockz Magazine. The video for ‘Time Will Fly’ off the All Black album has garnered huge attention from fans receiving over 106,000 views in just over a month on YoRaps.
