  • Word word

    yes yes YESSSSS

  • Some Guy

    I love Sky, but I don’t know why he isn’t giving this mixtape out for free. I’m definitely buying his upcoming album, but there’s no way I’ll pay for a mixtape. Someone’ll just rip this upload it.

  • T-Virus

    @ SomeGuy

    If you really love Sky why not help this nigga out and buy the mixtape too

  • Matt

    Some Guy –

    I’m sure it was Duck Down’s decision to do that; not Sky.

    Regardless, this mixtape is ridiculously dope as expected.

  • Matt

    Also, anyone else think the dude Open on “By Any Means” sounds A LOT like Curren$y?

  • YES

    HOLY FUCKIN BALLS THIS IS INCREDIBLE

  • good music

  • i like, wish the whole thing was free.

  • GoGetter

    THESE UNDERGROUND GUYS SHOULD BE SUPPORTED THEY DONT HAVE THE BIG LABELS PROMOTING AND FUNDING THEIR SHIT AND HALF THE TIME THE MUSIC AND ARTISTS ARE WAY BETTER THAN THE MAINSTREAM BULLSHIT WE GET PUT IN OUR FACES EVERYDAY

    KIDS THESE DAYS ARE SO USED TO DOWNLOADING FREE MUSIC THEY HAVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN THEY ACTUALLY HAVE TO SPEND SOME MONEY FOR ONCE

    Some Guy
    Spoiled fan, it’s all new production and album quality work
    why not? and it’s only $5

  • p

    GoGetter
    I feel you
    I wish there was a deluxe version of the album that included this on an official CD

  • Freeze

    i got bills motherfucker.. sorry i love buying music.. but a 4.99 for 6 tracks naah ill save the money for some gas

  • Freeze

    the way i view the game.. artists should put out album quality music for free 2 get fans then rely on those fans to come to shows..

  • Mike

    This tape is good, Go support it people, Dreams vs Reality. Good inspiration for ppl coming up.

  • p

    it’s more than 6 tracks

  • marty mcfly

    DOPE !!!

  • NuDirtyBastard

    @GoGetter man that caps lock really helped prove your point, such a poetic use of it.

  • Freeze

    your right it is more than 6 tracks.. its 12.. but 6 of them are already free? soooo..

  • adi Pre

    Damn ain’t heard from Hasan Insane in a minute, nice mixtape.

  • pauly

    skyzoo is a very good rapper but his beat selection is just plain boring

  • p

    sooo go buy it

  • Lucy

    @freeze you need to get a better job if you can’t afford 5 on some music. If you want I’ll cope you one.

  • Chad

    Skyzoo should only be allowed to rap over 9th Wonder beats.

    This non-soulful shit here is unlistenable to me.

  • LaidbackLewis

    Track 11 doesnt sound like Any production I’ve ever heard from Jahlil Beats still dope tho. The whole tape is solid. I dont have a problem with any of the production

  • Freeze

    @lucy for sure send that shit on over– looks like your one of the lucky ones.. i would spend 5 on something more impressive but like i said this is only 6 tracks lol gtfo

  • Freeze

    oh and by the way you know of a BETTER job that is hiring? its no joke out here..

  • schrist

    @Freeze fake ass fan. Tell me, have you ever been to a Skyzoo show to show support?? Exactly what I thought. You gtfo

  • YoungCosby

    @Some Guy – You gotta understand that it’s not easy of independent artist to make it. They don’t have the push that they would receive from being on a major. So we should support the artist that consistently give us great music. That’s the only way they can continue to do so. Plus, I’m pretty sure you and everyone else has wasted money on other bullshit you didn’t even need.

  • Freeze

    @schrist lmao no i haven’t thats why im also not buying this mixtape.. been to countless other shows though.. either way u look at it you fools are paying 5 dollars for 6 tracks of mediocrity.. dont get me wrong i like the dude but not enough to pay almost a dollar a track lol.. its sad that the state of hip-hop has got u guys thinking u should shell out 5 dollars for this because everyone else is charging 10 dollars for 15 tracks of garbage bullshit..

  • Drey

    It’s rough out there, if dude can’t afford five dollars, then you know what that’s on him. Gotta have his priorities straight, and if it’s between buying a gallon of gas or mixtape, i’m sure skyzoo will understand. On another note, I definitely support good music and the artist who make it, but is there any other means of buying and downloading this tape without going through itunes?

  • adolfmayne

    ive never heard a whole project from this guy i just put the great debater on my ipod and i havent fully heard it but does guy have any better projects?

  • FreshSup

    ^ The Salvation, Cloud 9 w/ 9th Wonder, Live From the Tape Deck w/ Illmind

  • milly youre wrong

    no one got the link to this whole shit?

  • Milwaukee Made Me

    Gotta admit, I copped it, and I’ll gladly cop it again, its only 5 bucks for some dope ass music, Dedication 4 was free and I’d still buy this mixtape over that, I don’t mind spending money on quality music, if you can spend 180 bucks on some Jordans, 400 for some True Religions, 60 bucks for video games, 8 dollars on cigs, so what is 5 bucks gonna hurt for some real Hip-Hop music? The same people complaining about paying for 6 songs are probably the same people who complain that Hip-Hop is dead. Independent artists spend a lot of time and money to put together a project, studio times, paying producers, mixing and mastering sessions, sample clearances, they give a lot to us, and all the man wants is 5 bucks, he’s already given you 4 classics for free, the least you could do is show love. Support real Hip-Hop.
