Skippy Ickum – “Almost Famous

Today on Find Your Muse we look back at ” Almost Famous” by the infamous king of horrorcore, Skippy Ickum. Starting off with a somber hook, Ickum hypnotizes the listener before dragging them under with his barrage of technical bars and vulgar, yet introspective lyrics. Covering a wide array of topics from the hustle and grind of the starving artist to media censorship, “Almost Famous” hits hard where it counts before the hook comes back around to pull the listener’s head above water. One can’t ignore the eerie harmonized minor 5th outro that serves as a reminder to open our eyes and mind before heading to the slaughter house with the latest fads and trends. It’s alot to take in, but after repeated listens you really begin to find the brilliance wrapped up in this track despite its crude and controversial sensibilities.
