Skyzoo has created what he calls the “bridge” between his last project, The Great Debater, and his forthcoming album A Dream Deferred. Named Theo vs. J.J. (Dreams vs. Reality), Sky has crafted a very unique approach to this 12-track mixtape:
With this project, I wanted it to be a bridge between “The Great Debater” and “A Dream Deferred.” This mixtape literally picks up where “The Great Debater” left off and leads you directly into “A Dream Deferred.” The tape is split into 2 parts, Theo Huxtable and JJ Evans. The first half of the tape has me rhyming as if I were Theo, with the world from his point of view. Being well off, having to live up to a family’s expectations due to their success, etc. The second half is from JJ’s view, with the sound being slightly more aggressive and the stories built with an “in need of something” attitude. The tape is the idea of the vast contrasts of a life that my people and I dreamed of and aspired to as kids. (Theo) versus a life that was more of our reality (J.J.). This one is for US. Enjoy.
That explanation alone should be more than enough to warrant the $4.99 download. The entire tape can be previewed below.
