Ayo whattup its ya boy Big Ghost aka the mighty Hands of Zeus aka Spartacus Deluxe aka the magnificent Phantom Raviolis aka the world famous Cocaine Biceps aka Diamond Ligaments n all that. You already kno the hands on the clock n where they at. This is where we separate the trash from the treasures b. As yall may or may not kno.. it was 44 December 4ths ago that the boy Shawn Carter slid out the womb weighin in at 10 lbs n 8 ounces without givin his momma no pains whatsoever. Although throughout the years he gave her her fair share…but thats another story for another time namsayin.
Now my mans Skyzoo also happens to hail from the same borough that a 4 yr old Hov taught hisself to ride a bike in (a 2 wheel at that)…Brooklyn. The homie Sky been nice…but he took shit to the next level on this particular project yo. Workin witta composer from Philly by the name of Antman Wonder…Sky pays the ultimate homage to the legendary Shawn Corey Carter by lookin at Jigga’s first album n takin a musical photograph of the shit n then re-visualizin a different interpretation of that muthafucka usin his own palettes n dabbin extra colors here n there while takin away elements he aint felt he needed to include to give the joint his own personal brush strokes n splashes of paint namsayin. If you gon do a tribute to ya heroes this how you do it son. Yall probably remember how another underrated MC…known to the world as Elzhi… paid a similar tribute to Nasir Jones (aka Nasty Nas aka Nas Escobar aka Nastradamus or jus plain ol Nas) n his timeless classic Illmatic a few years back on the Elmatic joint. But yo…even tho theres similarities in the approach n shit…they still two very different projects nahmean.
Bein that he the only architect behind these soundscapes…Antman Wonder gets a chance to live up to the second part of his name n create some lush n elegant musical clouds for Sky to breathe his poetry into namsayin…givin the project a consistency n majestic feel like nothin the homie Sky ever had before namsayin. The orchestral flavor be givin son wings on his pen that allow the homie to float on these shits wit mad ease nahmean. The guestlist is kept to a minimum…but its some dope features by the amazing Mela Machinko n my dudes Torae n Sha Stimuli n whatnot. Ey’body playin they role n keepin the quality on maximum levels n shit. I fucks wit all this shit heavy.
The joint is available for $free.99…but theres also the option to pay n support the project while gettin some cool shit outta that nahmean. If yall feelin righteous…shit is available for download right here. Word life…I highly recommend yall shell out the few extra ducats n keep quality muthafuckin joints like this from not gettin shown proper love n all that son. This aint some thrown together bullshit from corny muthafuckas jus lookin to make a quick buck. Niggas put they hearts into this shit b. But yo…you can stream the shit below n decide for yallselves n whatever yo.
