Inspired to rap at age nine after hearing Chi Ali‘s Age Ain’t Nothin’ But A Number, Brooklyn native Skyzoo has long been one of NYC’s biggest underground names. Having released his newest mixtape, Corner Store Classic Remixed, as an iTunes exclusive, Skyzoo is ready to show off his top honor album status in the ‘BK School of Hard Knocks’ and in the process describe The Necessary Evils of his life. Accenting the beat is veteran producer Needlz (Buck‘s Let Me In, 50‘s Piggy Bank), whose distinctive hi-hats will surely get those Evils bangin’ on the block. With independents gaining credibility during hip-hop’s ‘Great Depression,’ most fans figured Skyzoo would be signed to a major by now– then again, the price of freedom can never be matched.
