Fresh: Skyzoo – ‘Theo Vs Jj: (Dreams Vs Reality)’
‘Theo vs J.J’ picks up where ‘The Great Debater’ left off and leads us towards the upcoming album ‘A Dream Deferred’ which is due out on October 2. This is another great release from the hugely underrated MC Skyzoo. He said of the project: "With this project, I wanted it to be a bridge between ‘The Great Debater’ and ‘A Dream Deferred’. The tape is split into two parts, Theo Huxtable and JJ Evans...
The first half of the tape has me rhyming as if I were Theo, with the world from his point of view - being well-off, having to live up to a family's expectations due to their success, etc.
“The second half is from JJ's view, with the sound being slightly more aggressive and the stories built with an "in need of something" attitude. The tape is the idea of the vast contrasts of a life that my people and I dreamed of and aspired to as kids (Theo) versus a life that was more of our reality (J.J). This one is for US. Enjoy!"
Check out the mixtape after the jump.
