He rants about subjects from the personal to the political, but Grand Scheem isn’t just another MC aping Eminem. Born in Pakistan, Scheem’s unique viewpoint comes from facing a still xenophobic post-9/11 climate. On his new single, “Desperica,” Scheem barks like DMX, unleashing thoughts about his rough childhood, getting by in America, and the war. It seems his flow and his fervor are striking a chord beyond just the Pakistani community: His first record, The Greatest Scheem Ever Sold, has been downloaded in 59 countries. Scheem plans an independent release for his first album, The Bigger Picture, this spring.
