Back in 1994, the Wu-Tang Clan offered what just might be the most concise, and accurate summations of our society ever pressed to wax, “Cash rules everything around me, C.R.E.A.M., get the money, dolla dolla bill y’all.” Skyzoo concurs with the Northeastern legends, but don’t get it twisted—as long as we live in a world where money runs things, the Brooklyn rhymesayer’s gonna “flash jewels” with the best of ‘em. A standout cut off his recently-released mixtape, Know That Cash Rules finds ‘zoo unapologetically flaunting his strategic alliance with the Almighty Dollar. Fellow BK mainstay (and recent Off the Record participant) Torae joins the headliner over Mell & D‘s lush, sampled beat, blasting his rivals in a combative closing 16. Like what you’re hearing? Then what are you waiting for—click here to stream and/or purchase Theo vs. J.J. (Dreams vs. Reality) in the Booth. Watch for Skyzoo’s next studio album, A Dream Deferred, to hit record stores and online retailers October 2, via Duck Down.
