Skyzoo and Pete Rock hit us with the second single from their “Retropolitan” project, which will arrive on September 20.
“When putting together ‘Retropolitan’, one of the first ideas I had was to put together the ultimate posse cut, with everyone who’s on the record being who I always had in mind. Something in the vein of DMX’s ‘Ni**az Done Started Something, Jay-Z’s ‘Reservoir Dogs’, LL’s ‘4,3,2,1’, etc. I broke the idea down to Pete, and he immediately played this beat. Pete knew exactly what would work for us to go bar crazy. When you put five top-tier lyricists on the same team at the same time; a blowout game ensues. Glad to have my peoples, who happen to be some of the best in the biz’ penmanship wise all in the same starting lineup for this all-star game.” – Skyzoo
