[Video] Skyzoo: “JanSport Strings” (prod by 9th Wonder)
Skyzoo is currently on his way to Chicago to perform at Sneaker Pimps tonight. Get warmed up for Sky’s performance by checking this new video for “JanSport Strings”. The song is from Sky’s forthcoming sophomore LP, A Dream Deferred. Skyzoo had this to say about the new video:
“The video, directed by Anthony Sylvester, was shot throughout Bed Stuy, Brooklyn NY. The theme was to show the parallels between me as a 9-year old aspiring emcee and me now as an accomplished emcee and artist, and how the things around me that groomed me haven’t changed. The song is a 3-minute auto-bio of me as a kid in Brooklyn. The ending is a clip from Video Music Box, the legendary NYC video show run by DJ Ralph McDaniels. This episode in particular was the debut of Chi-Ali’s ‘Age Ain’t Nothin But A Number’. Seeing that video that day on this episode of VMB made me start rhyming. This clip was literally the moment that changed my life. And the Chi-Ali tee shirt is pretty amazing. They’ll be on sale soon. Enjoy…”"
