Skyzoo & !llmind – “#allaboutthat” Video

By

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/01/skyzoo-and-illmind-langstons-pen-video"> The Incomparable Skyler Taylor got game like Denzel, Jesus Shuttlesworth and them. When he's not dusting off wannabe lyricists, speakers on blast in The Tape Deck with his brother !llmind, he's playing homebody to some brown sugar muffin cake with golden dimple. It's a great alternative to pushing metaphors to males all day and night. Domestic living, his and her's toothbrushes and split holiday visits with family. He's #allabouttat. And he's got her eating donuts every February 10th. Go head and marinate on that while you <a href="http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/live-from-tape-deck-bonus/id389200077">cop Live From The Tape Deck</a>, an album you <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/12/the-15-best-hip-hop-albums-of-2010">definitely need in your collection</a>.

I think it was Maurice Garland who tweeted this awhile back: isn't it odd how "FTW" (for the win) and "WTF" (what the f#ck) use the same letters to describe completely different emotions? This ain't got nothing to do with nothing, I just thought that I should mention. <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpREXPRv-lU">Respect to Weezy</a>.

“The Winner’s Circle” – Review Of Skyzoo & !llmind’s Live From The Tape Deck

By | 6 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/10/tss-presents-smoking-sessions-with-skyzoo-llmind"> While the Golden Age of the producer-MC collaboration lies years in the past, occasionally a group comes through that reminds Hip-Hop heads why the formula was so effective in the first place. 2010’s flashback is Live from the Tape Deck, a glimpse back to the glory days of Gang Starr and Pete Rock & CL Smooth. Brooklyn native Skyzoo and New Jersey’s !llmind craft 12 tracks of expert workmanship, which if not quite reaching those legendary heights goes the distance in doing their geographical roots proud. Key to the success of albums of this style is the chemistry between MC and producer and Skyzoo and Illmind have the right formula. “Frisbees,” the album’s premier track, moves with a symbiotic energy. !llmind’s Knight Rider-inspired production moves in concert with the rhythms of Skyzoo’s vocalization as he <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/10/notable-quotable-skyzoo-on-frisbees">floats quotables</a> like perfect thrown forehands.

Strength is generally found in numbers and the pairing of one of Hip-Hop's most studious lyricists along with a divergent producer proves just that.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/skyzoo-llmind-frisbees-video"> After running circles around their opposition (and throwing them), Skyzoo & !llmind deem in necessary to get back to the mission and blow out some subwoofers. No Rockford Fosgate® or Kenwood is safe when the <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/illmind">B.L.A.P. Master</a> starts to tinker with the bells and whistles in his arsenal.
