In light of Jay-Z's 44th birthday, Skyzoo & Antman Wonder release their collaboration EP "An Ode To Reasonable Doubt". The 9 song EP shows Philly composer Antman Wonder recreating the original beats with live string sections, horns, etc.. while lyrically its written from the perspective of Sky placing himself in the emotions that Jay displayed on the original but from his point of view as opposed to reinterpreting Jay's life.
This project is available as "Pay-What-You-Want" with incentives, release. You have the option to download the project for free or pay something. The EP includes a Digital Booklet with bonus material including a new song by Skyzoo called "Lights Out".
NEW YORK – November 27, 2013 - On December 4, 2013, Skyzoo will partner with producer Antman Wonder to release his final offering for the year: a concept album titled An Ode To Reasonable Doubt (AOTRD), presented by Sky's imprint First Generation Rich, Inc. and Loyalty Digital Corp. As the title suggests, the independent project - featuring nine new Skyzoo x Antman collaborations – pays homage to Jay-Z's 1996 debut album, with the release date carefully chosen to further honor the elder Brooklyn MC. The EP is being offered as a “Pay What You Want” release, with incentives offered at various price points. Loyalty Digital Corp. has partnered with several influential brands to offer incentive deluxe packages for those fans who are moved to support the project, including exclusive autographed merchandise and other prizes.
The idea behind AOTRD was actually born from Skyzoo's fans. In 2011, around the release of Detroit-rapper elZhi's Elmatic, an independent album inspired by Nas's debut Illmatic, Skyzoo was asked by one of his Twitter followers if he had ever considered doing the same with Jay-Z's Reasonable Doubt. As he always does, Sky retweeted the question with his answer, which was simply that it would be an interesting concept.

Local-Mu12 debut's their weekly series WORKING OVERTIME with a song called "Just a Reminder". "The idea behind WORKING OVERTIME is to release music & videos while engaging with our audience at the same time. My motto is, if you have 10 people that dig your music, make sure you keep feeding those 10 people with good music. Eventually 10 will turn into 20 and your audience will grow organically which is the best way for it to happen." - Fokis
