Scheme | Hunger of Memory (Prod. by Custom and Serious)
This is the intro to an upcoming album called "De Este Lado Tambien Hay Sueños" Song produced by Custom and Serious The picture is my father (on far left) with his friends working in farms in the US in the 70s. He came in search of a dream. Hoping to make a life for his wife (my mother) and his daughters (my sisters) back in Mexico. He eventually returned because he couldn't do it without them and they all came back as a family. I was born and raised in Chicago. I've been given countless opportunities because of the sacrifices my parents made. I will forever be grateful. Thank you to all the immigrants in our beautiful country that make it run every day. - Skeme
