Or at least that is how it's being presented:

https://www.mellomusicgroup.com/products/skyzoo-pete-rock-retropolitan-cd

Hard to express how perfect a rapper/producer combo that is on paper and the single's a good sign that the record will be on point -- keeping my hopes high on this one!

I wish Pete would've let a lot of artists do that with his beats cause as much as I know he likes to make joints & select what he thinks an artist should be spitting over, sometimes some artists already know what they want from a producer.

Saying that Pete played the beat for Skyzoo and said that it was from
94 sometime around the Illmatic sessions.

Bruh ...

Maybe he touched it up or maybe he didnt
either way this beat is Hades Lake of Fire Eternal Flame

Skyzoo is better to me, but whatever. He should get at least that level.

He’s so good.

In response to Reply # 11


          

His lines go over people's heads.....to be fair Sky integrates that thought into his songs, so he knows it.

I don't think Sky is wired to dumb it down much either. Like on Speakers on Blast (which in my opinion is his most easily digestible song) he still goes too far lol.

but I have to admit, some of his lines are opaque to me. 5 years on, I kinda still don't 100% know what some of his lines mean.

In response to Reply # 18


  

          

His delivery and overall content tends to be pretty straightforward, but he sort of Tarantinos his lines in such a way that they overlap, loop around and obfuscate each other. It's like a not-simple simple way of toughening up his bars that I feel's pretty unique to him so the only way to build that muscle as a listener is go in a bunker with his stuff and only his stuff for a while.

He should.

I don't know if "dumb down" is the right word for Cole, but he definitely targets his audience with the melodies, the over the top cussing, and the trap-hop style popular with current lyricists.

Sky is more of a purist

I’ve BEEN known about the man but I’ve been sleeping hard. I am overwhelmed by his catalog of mixtapes, EPs and studio albums.

So, Skyzoo fans: recommend ONE release I should listen to before this new album drops. What’s your favorite work?

This is my favorite album this year.

Richie is on repeat as I can't stop listening that joint.

If we never get another Pete and CL joint, then I would be happy to have more albums with Skyzoo and Pete. Sky's flow goes so well with Pete Rock's beats.

I should say that my favorite song changed like 4 times throughout the album on first listen.

This is great.

My *only* critique is Skyzoo is sort of relentless in that he feels like he has to pack every bar with as many syllables as possible - switch up the flow just a bit, breathe, and let a listener catch up! Small critique though because he's so lyrical with it - rarely a wasted line.

Pete and Skyzoo make as great a combo as I hoped. This year's top 10 is going to be packed but this will almost certainly make the list.

100% on point with this! He should let that bitch breathe once in a while. And he has little to no charisma, but other than that, a great emcee. And the beats are insane!

So y’all want him to do that Drake shit where he only raps for half the bar and makes funny sounds on the other half so y’all slow asses can keep up?

This is fucking rap.

Skyzoo is always in the pocket.

This is what I've been wanting from Pete Rock for a while, and lyrics are dope, but, but, other than that, that's all I'm going to say.

Are all these beats unused Pete treats from years gone by or are some current?

I don't like the beat anymore because its just a loop. ALC didn't FLIP IT ENOUGH!

In response to Reply # 53


          

Some stuff is straight from the mid-90s like "It's All Good" was made in Illmatic times...while some is from today like the joint with Styles P.

I'd imagine that working with Pete is just figuring out which beats just attack you more than others....because Pete prolly got like hundreds of beats....I wannna know when to Sky knew when to stop picking stuff.

I've been listening to this pretty much nonstop for the past couple weeks and it is damn near flawless. Might be my album of the year.
