Skyzoo Releases New EP, Milestones, Dedicated To Fathers

In honor of this Father’s Day Weekend, Brooklyn emcee Skyzoo, released yesterday, his newest EP, Milestones. It’s named after his son Miles, and signifies the milestones that dad’s everywhere reach in life as they grow into fatherhood. A conceptual EP where Sky will be sharing stories about his life as a kid, growing up with a dad, being a dad, and the importance of it all shaping him into the Father he’s today. “The idea for this project came to me from noticing the landscape of how fathers are represented in hip hop. Outside of Will Smith’s classic “Just The Two Of Us” and a handful of others, the majority of the records in Hip-Hop that speak on fatherhood have a negative connotation.” Skyzoo proclaimed in a statement about the project. “I wanted to change that narrative, as it’s not the only one that exists. Myself, being a father, there are a ton of others like me who are engulfed in Hip-Hop and are also 24 hour a day dads, who’s kids mean the world to them. I wanted to showcase that.” Skyzoo also adding that, “This is a conceptual EP, where each song is a story that holds hands with the ones before and after it, all about my life as a kid, growing up with my father always in my life, and how that’s now shaped me as a father myself. This project is solely about growing up with a dad, being a dad, and the importance of it all. To all of the fathers out there who are lovingly and actively doing the work—this one is for us.” You can listen to the very smooth and jazzy !llmind-produced lead single, A Song For Fathers. That was released earlier this week. As well as the full EP below.
