Amongst a million other things, he is a member of the legendary Rock Steady Crew, a global DJ, cultural ambassador, burger connoisseur, and preserver of culture. Having started Djing in the earliest days of "hip-hop," Skeme, has nearly 40 years of experiences and observations as an active participant. Known as the "Nostalgia King," hes taken note of the dynamic shifts and changes within emceeing, djing, graffiti, and breaking; as well as their relationships to various subcultures through the lense of a life long Philadelphia resident that is still rocking parties around the world.
Were big fans of Skemes website, nostalgiaking.com, which documents of his global journeys but it was an honor to sit down with the King himself to kick off the Reiwa era. We could have sat down with skeme for a week and barely broke the surface of his experiences, so we kept this episode long for yall.
Also we had the folks Average Guy Named Ran come through to take some photos and video. So be prepared for that. Check it out, expeditiously.
