Jae Skeese connects with Conway The Machine and Flee Lord in his new “Against Tha Grain” video.
Currently on the road with Conway The Machine for his Love Will Get You Killed Tour, Jae Skeese is one of the first signees to Conway The Machine’s Drumwork Music Group imprint, and he is currently finishing his debut project, Abolished Uncertainties, for the label; which will be executive produced by Conway.
After appearing on two songs from the deluxe version of Conway The Machine’s From King To A GOD, and the first single, “Blood Roses,” from La Maquina, Jae Skeese continued his ascent by not only appearing (“Drumwork” with fellow signee 7xvethegenius) on Conway’s Shady Records debut album God Don’t Make Mistakes but also by contributing to the album’s rollout, as Skeese murked two different freestyles alongside Conway on Bootleg Kev and LA Leakers.
Today, Jae Skeese presents a visual for his new single “Against Tha Grain” and is joined by Conway The Machine and Flee Lord. “Against Tha Grain” is the first single from Skeese’s forthcoming Iroquois Pliskin EP, which will be released this spring. The video for “Against Tha Grain” was premiered by Complex.
The EP’s title, Iroquois Pliskin, is inspired by one of Metal Gear Solid’s main characters, Solid Snake, aliases as Skeese continues to draw inspiration from the game’s characters and artwork for his projects.
“Before I release my official Drumwork debut project, I wanted to give fans a project to hold them over and to feel more connected. With Iroquois Pliskin, I get a little more into my story and I feel fans will love it for that reason” Skeese commented to Complex. “Being vulnerable hasn’t always been the easiest thing for me, but it’s essential for my growth as an artist. It’s time to get people in tune with my sound and message.”
