A follow-up to final month’s “Bed-Stuy is Burning,” the brand new music helps additional drive the idea of the venture dwelling with one other stellar efficiency from Zoo and his counterparts.
“The album as a complete is about gentrification and cultural appropriation, from cowl to cowl. It begins with my neighborhood with the way in which that it as soon as was and ends with what it’s presently become,” Skyzoo says. “With ‘St. James Liquors,’ it’s a narrative of what my neighborhood was like, and it makes use of 13 yr outdated me as a catalyst of those two kinds of people that my pals and I have been in awe of: the fellows exterior and the musicians who represented them. As a younger child writing rhymes and rising up a block away from the late nice Infamous BIG, inspiration was straightforward to get, because it was actually footsteps away. The tug of warfare of the fellows on the block who have been stars and the fellows who represented them who have been stars, and the irony of them going hand in hand, was one thing that had my head on a swivel as a young person. This music breaks down the dichotomy of the 2. Kenny Keys created the gorgeous backdrop, my very long time collaborator Sean Taylor added the trumpets, and rising songstress Aaria took the imaginative and prescient I had harmonically and introduced all of it dwelling. The title was the identify of the liquor retailer in my hood that’s now become a pharmacy. Sums all of it up completely.”
