At the very start of Brooklyn spitter Skyzoo‘s Jansport Strings he raps, “My mama prayed that I wouldn’t be Chi-Ali/ Now my mama straight cause I wanted to be Chi-Ali.” So I probably don’t have to tell you how incredibly dope it is that Skyzoo was able to recruit the Bronx rapper for a newly-released remix of Jansport Strings, right? Jansport Strings (Remix) serves as the first record Chi-Ali has appeared on in quite sometime due to a 12-year prison sentence he recently served, but it’s as if the newly freed emcee hasn’t missed a beat on the 9th Wonder-produced cut. Jansport Strings (Remix) serves as merely a promotional single, but the original version of the record can be found on Skyzoo’s Dream Deferred album, which is due out today and can be previewed and purchased via The DJBooth.
