Studio Session: Skyzoo x Chi-Ali Record “Jansport Strings Remix” (Video)

Skyzoo’s latest single “Jansport Strings” was a pretty dope tribute to Chi-Ali who was recently released from prison & now back making music. What’s even more interesting is Skyzoo has linked up with Chi-Ali & they’ve recorded the remix at my homie Fokis’s studio in Brooklyn. That’s not only dope, but that’s historic for many reasons. Check out the video above & the final version of the remix below. Skyzoo’s next project “A Dream Deferred” drops tomorrow…

Skyzoo – “Jansport Strings” (Video)

“The video, directed by Anthony Sylvester, was shot throughout Bed Stuy, Brooklyn NY. The theme was to show the parallels between me as a 9-year old aspiring emcee and me now as an accomplished emcee and artist, and how the things around me that groomed me haven’t changed. The song is a 3-minute auto-bio of me as a kid in Brooklyn. The ending is a clip from Video Music Box, the legendary NYC video show run by DJ Ralph McDaniels. This episode in particular was the debut of Chi-Ali’s classic ‘Age Ain’t Nothin But A Number’. Seeing that video that day on this episode of VMB made me start rhyming. This clip was literally the moment that changed my life. And the Chi-Ali tee shirt is pretty amazing. They’ll be on sale soon. Enjoy…” -Skyzoo

In an rather coincidental sort of timing, Chi-Ali was recently released from prison & Special Ed posted a photo of the two together.  So indeed one time for Chi-Ali coming home as well.  Check out Special Ed’s quote & the photo after the jump. Skyzoo’s upcoming album ‘A Dream Deferred’ out Oct. 2nd on The Faculty/Duck Down Music Inc.

Skyzoo – “FGR” (First Generation Rich) [Video]


Respect to Skyzoo for the new video dopeness! “FGR” (First Generation Rich) is off Skyzoo’s forthcoming mixtape, “Theo VS JJ (Dreams vs. Reality).”  You can cop your own download of the mixtape (including this “FGR” joint) via iTunes. Nice. So nice! Here’s what Skyzoo had to say about it:

‘The idea for “FGR” came from me watching an Oprah Winfrey special on the Miami Heat’s recent title win; she asked Dwyane Wade about his life now, as opposed to when he was a kid in Chicago. He went on to talk about being the first one in his family to have any type of ‘real money.’ In doing so, he used a slogan: “First Generation Rich.”

Skyzoo – #Anxious feat. Kay Cola

Fresh off of his critically acclaimed mixtape “The Great Debater,” Skyzoo celebrates 2/14/2012 with a song strictly for his female audience.  After success with numerous “for the ladies” jams such as “Easy To Fly,” “#AllAboutThat”, and “Expensive Habits,” Sky has whipped up “#Anxious” for Valentine’s Day 2012.  The track features vocals by Cali’s own Kay Cola (Talib Kweli, Ne-Yo, etc) and produced by Christian Rich (N.E.R.D., Pusha T., GLC, etc).  When you download the track for you will receive the “I Heart Skyzoo” tee shirt the model is wearing on the cover.  (I’d bet $100 that I know who that model is with those lips & by the way she’s filing out the T-shirt. Hahaa).  Quantities are limited (only 100), and once they are gone they are gone for good!

Happy Valentine’s Day from Skyzoo and TeamSkyzoo

Skyzoo – “Written In The Drums” (Video)


This is easily one of my favorite songs from Skyzoo’s “The Great Debater” project. “Written In The Drums” produced by Swiff D was one of the key tracks that I spun on the radio show regularly when the Great Debater project dropped. This new video directed by @Pacool breathes new life into the project for those that need to still go cop that joint.
