Oh vey. Skyzoo got Chi Ali on the Remix for Jansport Strings which is an ode to how Skyzoo was inspired as a child to see a young rapper like Chi Ali out there living the dream with the Native Tongues Crew. The Jansport String narrative goes that Skyzoo got into Hip Hop because of this inspiration which helped keep him out of trouble. Interesting irony, as Chi Ali eventually ended up on America’s Most Wanted for murder despite being reared in the D.A.i.S.Y. Age. A mixture of factors exist in the world. Well, Ali is back out of jail and on Skyzoo’s song. It must be noted that Ali expressess remorse for the killing on this remix. It’s also a pleasure to listen to 2 people that are this delighted to be on a Hip Hop track together.

MP3:Action Bronson – Its Me (Prod. by Party Supplies)
Above is a new song that Action Bronson twittered. Below is a video that Noisey put together of Bronson rocking “Bird On A Wire” at the Williamsburg Music Hall. At some point he hands out steaks that him and Vice brought for public consumption. Bronson later goes into the crowd during Riff Raff’s verse.
Action Bronson will be in Columbus, October 12th @ Skullys. I do not think he will feed you but he will probably smoke weed and carry drunk women is my guess. We are a smaller market.
