    Even as he rocks increasingly ambitious production--and trust, Dream Deferred is one of 2012's great accomplishments--it's sometimes hard to get on Skyzoo's side as much as he seem tailored towards accessibility.

    The production is on point and the rhyme patterns are above average, but there's a distinct lack of cohesion.

    Skyzoo has created an album that may not be the dream we all thought it could be, but it is one that will be playing in your mind long after you've nodded off.

    Skyzoo's sincerity as a rapper is shot through A Dream Deferred, but the album has a seamless musical charm.

    Skyzoo got himself a winner with this album.

    If A Dream Deferred isn't the best produced album this year, it's gotta be in the top three.

    So underrated as an album and Skyzoo as an artist. There isn't a bad song on the album, the production is great, and Skyzoo's bars are fantastic. All of the features add something to the tracks they're on. Really, there isn't enough praise to put on this album. Check this out and give this the attention it deserves. Full Review »
