Brooklyn emcee, Skyzoo, is easily one of the best lyricists and emcees in all of Hip-Hop right now and has been so for the past several years. So it should be no surprise that his newest solo album, All The Brilliant Things. Is one of the most anticipated by us here at TheHipHopDemocrat and a lot of other Hip-Hop fans this year.
Dropping on June 11th, a couple of days before my birthday. Skyzoo launches the campaign for the new album today. With the release of the new Melanie Clarke-Penella-directed video for lead single, Bed-Stuy is Burning. That features the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble and sees Skyzoo in his old stomping grounds of Brooklyn. Rapping to other cities around the U.S. as a warning the gentrification so many of them now face that has happened to his hometown. Before it happens to them.
The very nostalgic boom-bap backed production from Rashid Hadee providing the perfect backdrop. For Skyzoo to deliver this warning so many inner cities are facing. That’s just the way Hip-Hop was always meant to be with dope lyrics and production. For the emcee to deliver a message to their people in just the right manner for them to better themselves and people from said message.
