The official video for "Jansport Strings”, directed by Anthony Sylvester, is the lead single off Skyzoo's upcoming album, "A Dream Deferred", out Oct. 2nd on The Faculty/Duck Down Music Inc.
In Skyzoo's Words:
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...
