New Music: Skyzoo x Westside Gunn “Luxury” http://rapradar.com/2015/05/27/new-music-skyzoo-x-westside-gunn-luxury/ http://rapradar.com/2015/05/27/new-music-skyzoo-x-westside-gunn-luxury/#comments Wed, 27 May 2015 17:19:06 +0000 http://rapradar.com/?p=346248 Opulence.

Skyzoo’s back with a self produced track off his forthcoming set, Music For My Friends. The also song features Buffalo newcomer, Westside Gunn. Says Sky:

The idea behind the record was to put together something that really felt like the city. Something that really felt like the NY that I know and grew up in. From the content to the beat, it feels like expensive cars driven by guys from down the block who figured out a way to get whatever they want and celebrate those realizations. That’s how the city looked and felt to me growing up, and I wanted to build something like that for this generation that still tied into the album’s overall theme of innocent ignorance and misguided desires

Kid Capri is probably the reason why your favorite DJ even touched a turntable. And last week, he appeared on Juan Epstein with Cipha and Peter. Here’s a synopsis of their two hour long convo.

Man oh man. Nearly two hours with the greatest party DJ of all time. This goes so deep and so nerdy and so much DJ talk and so much behind the scenes. This is what happens when you have two lifelong DJs interview one of the best DJs on Earth. We also talk about Ciph and my recent solo adventures and spend a few minutes on the Chinx tragedy.
