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>.

“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/2010/03/review-of-kidz-in-the-halls-land-of-make-believe"> It may be Naledge Born's born-day, yet he's the one doling out the gifts. The Windy City native linked up with Aphilliate DJ Moondawg for his Twentysomething mixtape to celebrate the occasion. Much like <a href="../tag/land-of-make-believe">The Land Of Make Believe</a>, Twentysomething is a celebration of that transitional place between 25 & 30.
