Skyzoo told me in an interview a while back that he’s been inching towards making beats but hadn’t learned to work the machines yet. Well, for his upcoming Music For My Friends he got some lessons from uber producer iLLMind to flip a familiar bass line for his new track “Luxury.”
“I had this idea for what the song should be sonically, but I had trouble getting that from the producers I went to at the time. I decided to try to man the machine myself, but there was no way I was gonna be able to pull it off without my man !llmind and his genius talents playing Steve Kerr and coaching my efforts. I went to him with the idea, picked the drums, the loop, the change ups, etc, and he then helped orchestrate it and bring it to life”.
Additionally, the video for “Luxury” has been shot and is in the works for an early June release.
Skyzoo’s third solo album, “Music For My Friends”, hits stores June 23rd via First Generation Rich Inc./Empire and can be pre-ordered here: smarturl.it/MFMF
