Brooklyn MC Skyzoo has proven to be a formidable lyricist throughout his career. After piecing together an ambitious effort with Apollo Brown titled The Easy Truth in 2016, Sky is ready to release his new solo endeavor, titled In Celebration of Us.
Slated for a Feb. 2 release, In Celebration of Us will find Skyzoo tackling an array of issues, including police brutality, cultural appropriation and more.
"On this album, I wanted to tap into the present, more so than any other album of mine as far as full projects. Music of the times is the best way to describe it,” Skyzoo tells 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."
