‘Thick Skin’ is a coming of age piece that details different journeys experienced by young people in the UK; highlighting life’s challenges and adversity. This track has an earnest feel, as each emcee (Lucas, St.Jude & IF‑E) wears their heart on their sleeve, delivering rapid, double-time bars brimming with personal insight on relatable subject matters such as loss, poverty and everyday struggles.
This combined with the catchy and unique singing talent of Fullmarx, gives ‘Thick Skin’ an optimistic and distinctively British flavour. Furthermore, the looped acoustic guitar and rolling percussion of the beat adds a new dimension to underground grime music; demonstrating IF‑E’s seamless ability to transcend genres in his production.
