One of the most creative minds and dynamic talents in Hip Hop, Skyzoo (@Skyzoo) has been making beautiful music on a consistent and regular basis. From Cloud 9: The 3 Day High to A Dream Deferred, the man born Gregory Skyler Taylor has been at the apex of thought-provoking lyricism and quality over quantity-based music. You can check the resume. There are NO releases in his catalog, be it mixtape, EP, or album, that can be considered sub-par. S-K-Y-Z-O-O continues the trend with the conceptual masterpiece An Ode To Reasonable Doubt. To pay homage to one of his BK influences, Skyzoo has concocted a joint that will not only coincide with the 44th Birthday for the one and only Shawn Corey Carter, but end 2013 on an extremely high note. Truth be told, this has been a good year for Hip Hop releases.
This auspicious EP follows in the vein of the Elzhi masterpiece Elmatic (with Will Sessions providing the musical backdrop to great effect). For AOTRD the Illadelph producer Antman Wonder (@antmanwonder) added a very lush and organic feel to the nine-track offering. Antman Wonder is no stranger to creating dope music; check his credits ranging from fellow Philadelphia resident Peedi Crakk to Chicagoan Add-2. Below you can lock and load the artillery that Skyzoo and Antman Wonder are aiming at the heads (metaphorically speaking). This is undoubtedly a dope born day treat for Jay Z (no hyphen) and dope aural treat for the rest of us Hip Hop individuals. Enjoy An Ode To Reasonable Doubt, throw up the ROC symbol, and witness another masterpiece from one of the dopest, yet underrated, cats in the industry. It is indeed "a scholar written and orchestral approach to what raised us".
