Scheme - Remakes

No comments:

It takes a certain type of artist to hold their own over production that we may consider to already been killed. But Scheme took on many a beats put his own spin on it and gave us his vision. Scheme recently took to his soundcloud page, release something of a unofficial mixtape full of the remakes which we see the different stages of progress to releasing his LP and official mixtape.

Scheme takes on some pretty well know track likes, "Devil In a New Dress", "Lord Knows", "Glory", and more.During these release we saw Scheme announce the mixtape, "Pocket Full of Pesos" and the LP "Pesos Turn to Dollars". While the mixtape was going to be full of remakes, I'll assume there's more Scheme has to offer.

Providing bars in English and Spanish, Scheme will definitely to last in the local scene and hopefully, further than that. Keeping good release consistently coming, I'm looking forward to his next couple of projects.
