Skyzoo är aktuell med nya albumet “‘All the Brilliant Things”



New York-rapparen Skyzoo är tillbaka med sitt första albumprojekt för 2021, efter att under pandemiåret 2020 bjudit på albumen “The Bluest Note” och “Milestones”. På den nya skivan “All The Brilliant Things” samarbetar han med Raheem DeVaughn, BJ The Chicago Kid och Al Skratch. Produktion tillhandahålls av Karriem Riggins, King Thelonious, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Blakk Soul, Rashid Hadee och Marc NFinit. Konceptet bakom albumet kommenterar Skyzoo enligt nedan, citerad av 2Dopeboyz:


“My music has always been a combination of a few things: storytelling, motive, and reflection. I tell stories that speak on the motives of those I grew up with and why they’re such, and then reflect on how those things impacted us all, both my inner circle and subconsciously, the listener.”


Han fortsätter:


“With ‘All the Brilliant Things,’ the idea was to truly try and tackle the realities of gentrification and this new era of cultural appropriation, commonly known as ‘culture vulturing.’ The way they intertwine with one another, parallel at times, and how us as the residents of our long standing homes and creators of these cultures have been stripped of it, or at times let it happen, and even in some cases sadly helped it happen, all for what we assumed was our best interest. The irony of it all is, despite how it all makes us feel in hindsight, one would have to admit that the orchestration of it was truly brilliant. Brutal, and heinous, but somehow pretty brilliant. Hence the title of the album.”
