When searching for a gift for someone who’s got it all (and enough money to buy it all over again), your best bet is to go the personal route and make something special. A hip-hop album, for example. Knowing they probably couldn’t afford anything on JAY Z‘s wishlist, Brooklyn emcee Skyzoo and producer AntMan Wonder’ celebrated the rap icon’s birthday yesterday by dropping a tribute project. New single Meeting the Presidents, released along with visuals by Alex Ghassan, finds Sky reflecting on the paper chase over a lush instrumental inspired by Ski‘s Dead Presidents beat. Think the emcee/producer duo did Jigga proud? I think I know the answer but, as always, you get to render the final verdict. More Hova-inspired jams can be found on An Ode to Reasonable Doubt , available now via Bandcamp. It’s being offered as a “Name Your Own Price” release, with autographed merchandise and other incentives offered at various price points.
