New music video from Skyzoo off his ‘A Dream Deferred’ album. Skyzoo and Talib Kweli pay tribute to Spike Lee, who also makes a special appearance at the end of the video.
With the 2012 year coming to an end, South Florida Hip Hop recording artist Mercy, has finally released his highly anticipated Prelud3 EP. The Prelud3 EP consist of eight newly recorded tracks with production from in-house producer Solidified, bringing you that familiar iLLustrious sound, as well as Zino courtesy of Exhibition Z Productions. The Prelud3 features verses from some of hip hop’s underground favorites such as Ali Vegas, Skyzoo, Planet Asia and Tristate…..Its just the ‘prelude’ to the Prestige 3. Coming soon.
Skyzoo has flow for real. A Dream Deferred is out now on iTunes.

The Mixdown is a weekly show presented by Fuse in which Esteban visits recording studios to hang with hip hop producers and MCs. This week Esteban spends time with Skyzoo, who previews several tracks on his upcoming album “A Dream Deferred.”
His music is starting to grow on me, I like his flow. A Dream Deferred will be out Oct. 2nd.
“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…”
Son-Ray spits from a real place. He has a real underground sound that I like.
A lyrical power house from Bedstuy, Brooklyn, Son-Ray’s first single “Music Is My Life” featuring Skyzoo from his recently released Face Value FreEP now gets the video treatment. Local-Mu12 Member Son-Ray displays an amazing word play and flow, while Skyzoo does what he always does; and that’s “Get Busy.”
“Finding Me” off his Face Value EP is a gem. You can hear it HERE.
I haven’t always been into Skyzoo, but lately I’ve been realizing just how dope he is as a rapper. He still kinda reminds me of Jay-Z(a lot of people do), but that could just be the Brooklyn influence. Either way, this is his new joint…nice concept.
Don’t be afraid to support either, there is a iTunes version. Click HERE
I appreciate his approach to making music. I like how he is aware of remaining himself on records with other people.
“The Process” is a web-series that zeros in on the various methods artists use to reach a creative means. From writing, rhyming, how a beat is produced, to how they actually record — everyone has a process.
Episode one of “The Process” sheds some light on Skyzoo’s process, as he writes and records a verse to Nina B’s “718” (which also includes Action Bronson) from her recently released mixtape Titles Are Played Out! via 2DOPEBOYZ
Super Dope shit! Chicago Producers, the Odd Couple (produced for XV, Mikkey Halsted and more) team up with Skyzoo on “Speak it Vivid.” It’s the first single off the Odd Couple’s debut EP “Seperated at Birth” set to be released in the coming months.
