Skyzoo ft. Raheem Devaughn – Bakers Dozen

Skyzoo releases his ‘Bakers Dozen’ visual that features Raheem Devaughn.

In Celebration of Us was significantly influenced by the birth of Skyzoo’s new (infant) son.  The impending birth drew Skyzoo back to his childhood and to recall his relationship with his own father; an admitted hustler, but a hustler who was always omnipresent in his life (their relationship is a major narrative on the new album). “The most important thing a black boy can have is his father.” “With so many things that are going on in our own country and around the world, looking the way we look and being who we are, I wanted this project to serve as a guidebook — something my son could always go back to.”

“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 it” Skyzoo stated. “From cultural appropriation and gentrification to police brutality and the irony of motives behind bigger motives, it’s an album that explores who we are and why we are where we are in society, as a people. What’s been done to us and what we’ve done to ourselves, mainly out of confused necessity, all while celebrating us in the process.  I’m honored to be able to give my take on our story”.  Watch ‘Bakers Dozen‘ featuring Raheem Devaughn.
