While scanning though our extensive archives it was decided upon to assemble a collection of Rhyme Skeme tracks that would serve as a new release for 2019. The appropriately titled "Dusty Crates" consists of songs that were recorded between 2004-2014 that were shelved and never found their way onto any official project...until now. This is the first in a series of forthcoming albums with a  purpose to showcase some of our finest unreleased works; as we feel without question deserve to be heard! While this record is not a Rhyme Skeme album proper, it is the closest to a new release from the group as a collective since 2004's Organized Rhyme. From a production standpoint, this compilation of material was made with no editing or final mastering giving it the vibe and energy of a mix tape format - slapped together, but not without careful selection and relevance. Altogether, this unique collection of tracks also works as a whole in capturing the spirit and style of the Rhyme Skeme group with full blown authenticity.

"Dusty Crates" also boasts a robust roster of feature artists we had the pleasure of collaborating with, presenting a gritty street flavor to the album that we feel adds a certain rawness to it's profile. Given the developmental time period in which these songs were written, it is impossible to not hear the passion and hard work put into each number. Enjoy the latest entry in the of the Rhyme Skeme catalog and stay tuned for more! *This album is featured on our website for streaming purposes only.
