Before his Music For My Friends album makes its debut, Skyzoo has gifted the masses with another dosage of new music and a look inside his upcoming project.
The Brooklyn rapper recently released a new documentary directed by Caity Arthur titled Comradery: The Making of Music For My Friends, which showcases him in the studio, strolling through his old neighborhoods of Jamaica, Queens and Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn alongside his homies. You’ll see very specific details, like the playground in which he first heard Nas’ legendary Illmatic record in 1994.
He also revealed that his main inspiration for the album was about his experiences with his good friends. “The idea behind it was not caring about what anyone thinks about the project except for my friends,” he says in a clip.“If you look at the cover, those are my real friends in the cover.”
Along with the documentary I dropped today, I also let go of the “Music For My Friends” sampler pack, with snippets from all 15 songs off the album. Peep it now on my soundcloud page (http://bit.ly/MFMFsampler) or click the link in my bio. #MusicForMyFriends in stores June 23rd. Get ready . #MFMF #FGR
