With the Brooklyn emcee latest album, In Celebration Of Us, Skyzoo celebrates by releasing a new track. The Apollo Brown produced “Bakers Dozen”, features crooner Raheem DeVaughn. I can’t wait until the album is released and Skyzoo has never disappointed when it comes to releasing a full body of work.
Today, via an exclusive premiere with Complex, Skyzoo shares the lead-singe, “Bakers Dozen,” featuring Raheem Devaughn from In Celebration of Us. “On “Baker’s Dozen”, I wanted to explore the world I know, same as I always have throughout my career, but from the perspective of what once was, currently is, and probably will foreseeably be, by diving into what happens when things like gentrification take place in that world” Skyzoo commented to Complex. “The idea of desire and attainability, by all means; regardless of the changes around you. The muse for the record was D’Angelo’s ‘Devil’s Pie’, which prompted me to bring in my brothers Apollo Brown and Raheem Devaughn, whom I’ve frequently worked with in the past. The energy they brought to the record was flawless. Vision fulfilled indeed!”
