The fan base Skyzoo has been able to acquire stretches from the street to the workplace, from the college hipsters to the women who shop in luxe boutiques, which have all lead to memorable placements: HBO's hit Entourage, NBA2K11 and NBA2K12 (he's the first and only artist to date to be included in the franchise's game and soundtrack in back to back releases), Grand Theft Auto 4: Lost and the Damned, and ESPN’s KIA NBA Shoot Around have all used Sky's music towards their markets, and the rapper also has a longstanding relationship as a musical rep for Brand Jordan.
Skyzoo has toured with Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Pharoahe Monch, Sean Price, and Buckshot, as well as headlined internationally in places like China, London, Paris, Berlin, Italy, Amsterdam, and more. He’s collaborated with the likes of Wale, Lloyd Banks, Pete Rock, Jahlil Beats, Hi-Tek, DJ Khalil, Buckwild, Jake One, Flo-Rida, Maino, Little Brother, EPMD, N.O.R.E, Talib Kweli, DJ Drama, Ace Hood, Sean Price, and Don Cannon, just to name a few. With his highly anticipated sophomore album A Dream Deferred slated for a fall 2012 release, Skyzoo is focused on continuing to be the ultimate artist, one able to make classic music with a lasting impact. Listeners can identify with his story; they can see the many sides of themselves in him. They play “For What It’s Worth” on their way to a dead-end job. They bump “Necessary Evils” as they hustle. They blare “Speakers On Blast” when they party. No matter the mood, season, or circumstance, Skyzoo offers music to live to, and to live by. The true embodiment of a street scholar. As his slogan goes, "Lyrics Will Never Be The Same".
