Apollo Brown and Skyzoo are preparing to release their collaborative album The Easy Truth on Sept. 30th. This week, the Detroit producer and NYC rapper have teamed up with Westside Gunn and Conway for a new track, "Basquiat On The Draw." Fueled by lyricism, delivery, wordplay and a gritty four-minute beat with a sample from an old interview with the legendary Jean-Michel Basquiat, "Basquiat on the Draw" provides an examination of true Hip Hop.
“I've been rocking with Westside and Con since late 2014” Skyzoo commented to XXL. “They are like family to me. When Apollo played me this beat, automatically I knew who I wanted to get on it, as it fit their style of abrasiveness. The song is just in your face punch lines; three emcees in a free for all cipher.” - Skyzoo
With features from Joell Ortiz, Conway, Westside Gunn, Stalley and Patty Cash, The Easy Truth is set to be a resurrection of Hip-Hop, providing thought provoking questions, grit, nostalgia and truth. Stay tuned for the release and in the mean time, you can listen to "Basquiat On The Draw" below.
