When it comes to underrated emcees, Skyzoo is a member of an elite class. In the four or five years I’ve been listening to his music, he’s been consistent with lyrical, thought provoking material and working with great producers like 9th Wonder and !llmind. With the release of his upcoming project The Great Debater drawing near, Sky’s been lacing his fans with leaks accompanied by the Twitter (#debateteamtuesdays). If you want solid examples of a man who is clearly trying to best an already impressive catalog, then listen to his two previous #debateteamtuesdays singles The Definitive Prayer and Written In The Drum. This week’s single Test Drive (produced by frequent collaborator !llmind) follows the trend of the first two and if you’ve heard Skyzoo and Illmind’s album, Live From The Tape Deck, then you already know what you’re in for when this duo creates sounds together. The Great Debater drops June 7 on DJBooth, which also happens to be my birthday – I can’t think of a better gift than new and ever-improving Skyzoo.
