Prior to the release of Skyzoo’s In Celebration Of Us album, the New York emcee gives us a taste of his forthcoming project with a sampler that premiered on Billboard.

“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. Conceptually, this is Ta-nehisi Coates meets Chappelle’s Show, The Autobiography of Malcolm X meets Black-ish, the case of Sandra Bland meets the birth of Air Jordans. It’s intense, and it’s beautiful. I’m honored to be able to give my take on our story”.

Apollo Brown & Skyzoo just returned from South Africa & Mozambique as part of “The Easy Truth” Tour. They decided to enlist some of Brooklyn’s finest (kids) to play the parts of Apollo, Skyzoo, Stretch, Bobbito, and recreate the classic 90s radio show “The Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Show.” The result is a low-key vhs style video session of WKCR’s most classic program. 89.9
