Speakeasy Presents Skyzoo
From the venue:
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 aspire to be a legend. 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 and living 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. His relatability and marketability have all lead to memorable placements in both the hearts of listeners and the eyes of corporate America. From HBO and NBA 2K to ESPN and Buffalo Wild Wings, Sky has lucratively brought corporate America along for the Brooklyn ride.
Outside of his own music, he's lent his pen to other literary areas, including screenplay writing for television and film projects, and ghostwriting for various multi platinum/Grammy winning/Billboard topping artists, which he’s become very well known for quietly doing. In regards to his own music, he’s collaborated with a plethora of artists and producers, including the likes of Jill Scott, Just Blaze, Dr. Dre, Bilal, Tyrese, Wale, The Lox, Black Thought, Pete Rock, Illmind, John Legend, Raheem Devaughn, Talib Kweli, and Spike Lee, just to name a few. Sky is also a dedicated active touring artist, having headlines tours in the U.S and overseas for a decade and counting. Whether 2,000 people in a hip hop venue in Berlin, or 30,000 people at a festival in South Africa, Sky’s yearly touring runs are all of the above and everything in between.
