Anyone remotely familiar with Skyzoo would be remiss not to concede the intricacy of his pen game; a new project from the Brooklyn MC has a track record of being guaranteed quality. So, when the 35-year-old rapper calls a project his most “layered and conceptual” — essentially his best — to date, it’s reasonable for fans to salivate.
If you haven’t heard before, Jamo Gang is the new name on the block and has already been co-signed by DJ Premier of Gang Starr. Consisting of Californian heavyweight Ras Kass, New York underground rapper El Gant and Long Island producer/rapper J57, they kick off the new year with their self-titled debut EP Jamo Gang. The project was released on Avenida Records, and is the first piece of work we’ve heard from the newly aligned trio.
As a new class of hip-hop artists from Detroit emerge, it always takes a lot of talent, hard work, and a bit of a thick skin to rise above the rest. The dynamic of Detroit hip-hop is forever changing and beloved worldwide while never being held in one particular box. Coming from this deep culture is a four-man collective known as Clear Soul Forcesconsisting of member L.A.Z., E-fave, J-Roc, and Ilajide. Recently, Clear Soul Forces, who’s sound is as influenced by the gritty streets of Detroit as much as seminal hip-hop groups like Black Moon or Souls of Mischief, released their debut full length album Detroit Revolution(s) and have become the subject of Red Bull Soundstage’s Sound & Vision Web documentaries.
