Skyzoo: Growing up just a block away from The Notorious B.I.G., watching him go from local corner boy to rap superstar, Skyzoo couldn’t help but dream big. The Brooklyn, NY native saw life in all of its "heaven and hell" juxtaposition, being from the infamous home of both Jay-Z and "Do The Right Thing". He started rapping at age nine, writing about what he witnessed on his daily routines as a child. Those years of observation have turned into first person narratives that have labeled Skyzoo as a "new legend" and have led to his albums being critically acclaimed by fans and critics alike. His storytelling has been commended by all walks of literary life, from hip hop royalty to university professors and everyone in between.

An artist in his own right as well as a songwriter for others, he’s collaborated with a plethora of artists and producers, including the likes of Jill Scott, Just Blaze, Dr. Dre, Tyrese, Wale, Jadakiss, Black Thought, Illmind, John Legend, Raheem Devaughn, Talib Kweli, and Spike Lee, just to name a few. His most recent album, “Retropolitan”, a full length collaborative album with legendary producer Pete Rock, has been garnering praise and attention since word of its inception leaked. What stands out most in regards to all of Skyzoo's accomplishments is how they've all come to fruition on account of his own work and will. As his slogan states: Lyrics Will Never Be The Same

Apollo Brown: Simplicity is genius. Great artists can make the ostensibly impossible seem effortless. It’s in this rarefied air where you’ll find Detroit's Apollo Brown, constantly conjuring fresh innovations out of a tried-and-true formula. For the last decade, the Mello Music Group artist has singularly re-defined and expanded the foundation of what boom bap production can sound like. Just consider the revered legends that have collaborated on full-length albums with him: Raheem DeVaughn (“Lovesick”), Guilty Simpson (“Dice Game,”) Skyzoo (“Easy Truth Sessions”), Stalley (“Blacklight”), Joell Ortiz ("Mona Lisa"), Ghostface Killah ("The Brown Tape"), and O.C. (“Trophies.”) No less than DJ Premier declared the latter “hip-hop for the people,” naming “Trophies” the best album of the year. This is the tradition that Apollo Brown triumphantly upholds: the head-nodding, screwface-inducing, soul-replenishing lineage of Primo and Pete Rock, J Dilla and Large Professor, Mobb Deep and DJ Muggs. He makes music for old and young heads—bone bruising beats that summon visceral images of back alley brawls in ’81, pool hall melees, and metropolitan griminess. An East Coast sound with a midwestern mentality, channelling the marrow-freezing chill of the wind fleeing Lake Michigan. Everyone from Danny Brown to Chance The Rapper, Freddie Gibbs to Masta Ace, Black Milk to Oddisee have spit bars over his beats. Apollo Brown has a body of work that lives up to the legacy of the older gods.
