NYC rapper Skyzoo is getting ready to release his new project In Celebration of Us, his most complex, layered album to date. The album is being described as Ta-nehisi Coates meets Chappelle’s Show meets The Autobiography of Malcolm X meets Blackish meets the case of Sandra Bland meets the birth of Air Jordans.
The 15-track album will have no guest features and production by Raheem Devaughn, Illmind, Apollo Brown, Daringer, Marc Nfinit, Cardiak, Tuamie, Ave Prod., Seige Monstracity, and Arte Mitchell.
“On this album, I wanted to tap into the present, more so than any other album of mine as far as full projects. Music of the times is the best way to describe it” Skyzoo commented to Billboard. “From cultural appropriation and gentrification to police brutality and the irony of motives behind bigger motives, it’s an album that explores who we are and why we are where we are in society, as a people. What’s been done to us and what we’ve done to ourselves, mainly out of confused necessity, all while celebrating us in the process.”
The album will hits stores and all streaming sites 2-2-18 via EMPIRE. Pre-order Skyzoo’s In Celebration of Us at iTunes: https://bit.ly/InCelebrationOfUs
