Skyzoo Signs With Duck Down, Debut Coming In August

Brooklyn rapper Skyzoo has recently inked a joint deal with producer 9th Wonder’s Jamla sub-label on Duck Down Records.

Making a name for himself over the past several years on the East Coast hip-hop scene with a handful of mixtapes as well as his highly-regarded project with 9th, Cloud 9: The 3 Day High, Sky is currently prepping his debut for August 11.

“Skyzoo is established, and a very talented MC,” 9th Wonder said in a statement about the signing. “We decided for him to be first because of that pure talent, drive and work ethic. He casts words in his rhymes that deserve to be studied by scholars. We believe that Sky has what it takes to make the first steps for Jamla and he believes it as well, which is important for him, for us and for our music.”

Along with beats by 9th, The Salvation, will also feature production by DJ Premier, Nottz and Illmind.

Skyzoo just dropped his latest mixtape, The Power Of Words, in anticipation for the studio album. Boasting guest spots by EPMD, Talib Kweli, Maino and Big Pooh, the tape, which is hosted by DJ Drama and Statik Selektah, is available for free download online. – Elan Mancini
