Skyzoo’s been on fire recently. Fresh from dropping a mixtape just last week, Skyzoo puts out these visuals for JanSport Strings, the lead single from his upcoming album ‘A Dream Deffered’. Backed by 9th Wonder on the boards with the images to match, this video is nice as hell, and just encourages fans of Skyzoo into thinking that this album’s just gonna be soooo good. Watch the vid for that last reference.
‘A Dream Deffered’ is out 2nd October.
“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 ‘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…”
