A Brooklyn emcee who's been serving up top-shelf records since the mid-'00s, Skyzoo has consistently impressed heads throughout his career, thanks to countless mixtapes, collaboration joints, and solo projects. Following up his recent concept album Theo vs. JJ, he returns with A Dream Deferred, continuing his tradition of intelligent, highly lyrical hip-hop that focuses on life, love, and BK pride. Produced mostly by longtime co-conspirators 9th Wonder and !llmind, plus DJ Khalil, Black Milk, and Tall Black Guy, among others, he presents another rock-solid collection of 21st-century boom-bap. Guests include Talib Kweli on the bass- and horn-driven "Spike Lee Was My Hero," Freeway on "Pockets Full," and Raheem DeVaughn for the intergalactic synth ballad "Drew & Derwin," while other highlights include "Jansport Strings (One for Chi-Ali)" and the neckbreaking anthem "Range Rover Rhythm." It's nothing inherently groundbreaking, just high-quality rap music from one of Brooklyn's finest.
Money Well Spent
When I hear great music like this I shed two tears. One because its proof hip hop is alive and well. The other because more people know about 2 Chainz then Skyzoo....
Decent effort but.....
Skyzoo always keeps it 100 but on this one it seems like something's missing.... Although 9th Wonder did grace the album it seems like Skyzoo's trying for mass appeal (which is any artist's goal if they want to stay relevant). It's decent though but he needs more of that boom-bap
Not only in the car This gonna be blastin on the iPhone 5 for a good while!!!!!!!!!
