|Apollo Brown & Skyzoo recently released their new album The Easy Truth. The Detroit & Brooklyn duo have one of the most cohesive albums of the year and are looking to ride into some Best of 2016 Lists. Skyzoo’s signature cadences and poetic insight into life pair seamlessly with Apollo’s classic burnt rubber, fire starting flips. The Easy Truth features Joell Ortiz, Westside Gunn, Conway, Patty Crash, and Stalley.
To celebrate their special edition mystery collection of vinyl that hits stores Friday Apollo & Skyzoo wanted to release the new visuals for Jordans & A Gold Chain shot in Calvan Fowler’s Brooklyn spot “Jordan Heads.”
“When I wrote this song, the idea was to really zero in on what we were told as youngins’ in my neighborhood what was important. To us, the small wins of a pair of Jordans and a gold chain meant the world, and with that in mind some of us lived on a “by any means” aspect and did whatever it took to fulfill those desires. Whether right or wrong, we all aimed for the same things where I’m from, and this record is a testament of those moments,” says Skyzoo.
“Sonically I wanted to give this record something that was minimal, gritty, and straight to the point; almost underproduced. Skyzoo did his thing, talking about a topic that I think we can all relate to as younger folk. It was always a goal to be one of the “haves”, instead of the “have-nots”. Jordan’s and a Gold chain gave that representation,” adds Apollo Brown.
There are 4 different vinyl color-ways, each limited to 500 copies and shipped randomly to stores all over the world. Post a picture of yours when it arrives!
