So far, everything about The Great Debater has been excellent. “The Definitive Prayer” kicked things off with a bang a little less than a month ago, as Skyzoo put on a dazzling display of lyrical skill. As the weeks passed, he continued to drop strong tracks, only increasing my excitement about this project. Hell, even the Cosby-inspired art that accompanied each release was unique and cool. Now, finally, the mixtape is here.
Presented by Jamla and Jordan Brand, The Great Debater features production from 9th Wonder, !llmind, Best Kept Secret, 14KT, Oh No and Swiff D, among others. Jesse Boykins III, Manhattan and King Mez are along for the ride. Skyzoo has been doing it for years now, so it’s hard to call him an up-and-comer. But the man’s still hungry. Once again, Skyzoo has come through with quality, free music for the listening public. No debate necessary.
Do remember, the tape’s NYC release party goes down tonight. Click here for the deets.
