Fresh off his latest project In Celebration of Us, lyricist Skyzoo presents the first visual, “Bakers Dozen” from the project. Featuring singer Raheem DeVaughn, the duo hits up the streets while a transaction is taken place.
In Celebration of Us is said to be Skyzoo’s greatest project thus far. Influenced by the birth of Skyzoo’s new son, Skyzoo revisits his childhood and to recall his relationship with his own father; an admitted hustler, but a hustler who was always omnipresent in his life (their relationship is a major narrative on the new album). Conceptually, this is 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 most important thing a black boy can have is his father.” “With so many things that are going on in our own country and around the world, looking the way we look and being who we are, I wanted this project to serve as a guidebook — something my son could always go back to.”
Skyzoo’s In Celebration of Us is now available for purchase and streaming at all digital platforms via First Generation Rich/EMPIRE.
