Growing up just a block away from The Notorious B.I.G., watching him go from local corner boy to rap superstar, Skyzoo couldn’t help but dream big. The Brooklyn, NY native saw life in all of its "heaven and hell" juxtaposition, being from the infamous home of both Jay-Z and "Do The Right Thing". He started rapping at age nine, writing about what he witnessed on his daily routines as a child. Those years of observation have turned into first person narratives that have labeled Skyzoo as a "new legend" and have led to his albums being critically acclaimed by fans and critics alike. His storytelling has been commended by all walks of literary life, from hip hop royalty to university professors and everyone in between. The fan base Skyzoo has been able to acquire stretches from the street to the workplace, from the college hipsters to the women who shop in luxe boutiques, which have all lead to memorable placements in both the souls of listeners and the eyes of corporate America.
Musically, he’s collaborated with a plethora of artists and producers, including the likes of Jill Scott, Just Blaze, Dr. Dre, Bilal, Tyrese, Wale, Jadakiss, Black Thought, Pete Rock, Jahlil Beats, Illmind, John Legend, DJ Khalil, Raheem Devaughn, Talib Kweli, and Spike Lee, just to name a few. His most recent album, “In Celebration of Us”, has literally been heralded a modern day masterpiece by critics, media, and fans alike.
No matter the mood, season, or circumstance, Skyzoo offers music to live to and live by. The best way to describe him? Ironically, it's noted in a lyric of his own, on his track "Fulfillment", as the line goes "Half '94 Nas/half '97 Betha", both an homage and testament to how critics and fans alike see him: the storytelling and lyricism of a young Nas, and the style, appeal and marketability of a young Mase. Wonderful company to be amongst by all means. The beauty in it all, is as his slogan goes, "Lyrics Will Never Be The Same".
