Skyzoo connects with Raheem Devaughn on theÂ Apollo Brown produced ‘Bakers Dozen’.
Today, Skyzoo shares the lead-singe, â€œBakers Dozen,â€ featuring Raheem Devaughn from In Celebration of Us.Â â€œOn â€œBakerâ€™s Dozenâ€, I wanted to explore the world I know, same as I always have throughout my career, but from the perspective of what once was, currently is, and probably will foreseeably be, by diving into what happens when things like gentrification take place in that worldâ€ Skyzoo commented to Complex. â€œThe idea of desire and attainability, by all means; regardless of the changes around you. The muse for the record was Dâ€™Angeloâ€™s â€˜Devilâ€™s Pieâ€™, which prompted me to bring in my brothers Apollo Brown and Raheem Devaughn, whom Iâ€™ve frequently worked with in the past. The energy they brought to the record was flawless. Vision fulfilled indeed!â€
“On this album, I wanted to tap into the present, more so than any other album of mine as far as full projects. Music of the times is the best way to describe itâ€ Skyzoo stated. â€œFrom cultural appropriation and gentrification to police brutality and the irony of motives behind bigger motives, itâ€™s an album that explores who we are and why we are where we are in society, as a people. Whatâ€™s been done to us and what weâ€™ve done to ourselves, mainly out of confused necessity, all while celebrating us in the process.Â Iâ€™m honored to be able to give my take on our story”.
