Skyzoo – In Celebration of Us (Album Stream)

Monday, February 5th, 2018

Skyzoo returns with his ambitious new release, the 15-track In Celebration of Us. Described as his most layered project to date, Sky looks to tackle a number of social and cultural themes on the album which he described to Billboard: “From cultural appropriation and gentrification to police brutality and the irony of motives behind bigger motives, it’s an album that explores who we are and why we are where we are in society, as a people. What’s been done to us and what we’ve done to ourselves, mainly out of confused necessity, all while celebrating us in the process. I’m honored to be able to give my take on our story.” The album features zero guest rappers but does boast contributions from Raheem Devaughn, Kay Cola, WordsNCurves and Saba Abraha, as well as production from !llmind, Apollo Brown, Daringer, Marc Nfinit and Cardiak among others.

Fortunately, this is actually the lead single from Onyx’s upcoming Rap/Rock project, Black Rock, which takes its inspiration from the song Sticky and Fredro recorded for the soundtrack to the film Judgment Night way back in 1993. Stream “I’ma Fuckin Rockstar” featuring Skyzoo below and look for the LP to arrive on February 16th.
