Brooklyn-bred emcee Skyzoo comes through with his latest album, “All The Brilliant Things”.
“My music has always been a combination of a few things: storytelling, motive, and reflection,” Sky says. “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. “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.”
The LP is made up of 14 tracks and features contributions from BJ The Chicago Kid, Karriem Riggins, Raheem DeVaughn, King Thelonious, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Blakk Soul, Rashid Hadee, Marc NFinit and a few others.
