Skyzoo & Illmind to Release Collab Album

blame it on Shake May 27, 2010

This Fall, Skyzoo and Illmind will be linking up for full length LP entitled Live From the Tape Deck. Considering these two have already crafted some dope shit together (including a joint w/ Torae & [email protected]!n$ off the upcoming (2)Dope Mixtape: Empire State Edition), this should definitely bang. Duck Down continues to win.

“It’s not rocket science,” says Skyzoo. “There won’t be any deep undertones or personal records like The Salvation; just dope beats and rhymes that’s better than everything else out. Back in the day, it was always like that. When you look at Eric B and Rakim, EPMD, NWA, A Tribe Called Quest and groups like that — you had one producer with one sound and one theme. That’s what we plan to bring with this project.”  But don’t get it twisted; Live from the Tape Deck isn’t a throw back to that 90’s sound. Skyzoo explains, “The reason it’s called Live from the Tape Deck is because when labels made cassette tapes, it just so happens that was when records were dope. Once the option of buying a cassette in a store was gone, that’s when things changed and music got whack.”
