New Music: Skyzoo, Bells and Whistles

Filed under: Download, Hip Hop, Song — Tags: , , — Greg @ 10:13 pm


Song: Bells and Whistles
Artist: Skyzoo
Album: The Power of Words (mixtape)
Label: Custom Made Entertainment
Producer: Algorythm
Notes: First single from The Power of Words
Analysis: By titling the song ‘Bells and Whistles’, Skyzoo actually means that he doesn’t need them. He is a no-gimmick rapper, uninterested in autotune singing effects or coming up with ridiculous braggadacio rhymes that nobody believes anyway. And somehow, he still manages to be good! ‘Bells and Whistles’ as a whole, however is a little vanilla. The beat by Algorythm is good, but that’s all it is. Sky’s lyrics are the strong point of the song (All this other shit is cool / I did what they didn’t do / But everything I’m giving you is literally literal / like, seen that, breathed that, be that / therefore, everything that I speak, believe that) Ironically though, this track maybe could have used a bell here or a whistle there to enhance it.
