Listen to TDE’s newest Signee, Lance Skiiiwalker’s debut Album: Introverted Intuition
Lance Skiiiwalker, TDE’s newest signee, has finally released his debut album, Introverted Intuition. While little is known about the label’s newest member, he has maintained a presence within the label since 2014 where he appeared on Schoolboy Q’s Oxymoron track “His & Her Friend”, along with SZA. Since then he’s also appeared on fellow label members Jay Rock’s album as well as on Kendrick Lamar’s untitled unmastered for the song “untitled 04” and on Schoolboy Q’s latest release, the Blank Face LP.
After listening to the album a few times through, I’d definitely say this is one of my favorite projects of the year and I expected nothing less from a member of TDE. Like the rest of the label, Skiiiwalker breaks through the stereotypical rap mold with his sultry deep voice as he sings about longing and frustrations of one-sided love. The unorthodox and experimental beats match perfectly with the desperate and fixated tone of the album, often switching up mid song to show the change of Skiiiwalker’s moods. He definitely has a unique sound and will likely gather a tight group of loyal fans in the months to come after this release, much like fellow TDE member Isaiah Rashad. The only feature on the album comes from Schoolboy on the song “Toaster” which will be a refreshing “stoner anthem” for some listeners. Since most of the songs seem somewhat shorter than they should have been, I can only hope that this is just a prequel for another soon to come album from the artist.
