After hitting us with those butter bars on Monday via his track "FGR,"Skyzoo wastes no time in releasing his latest mixtape, Theo vs J.J. (Dreams vs Reality). The tape picks up where Sky's The Great Debater mixtape left off and leads you right in to where Sky's upcoming LP, A Dream Deferred (10/02), is trying to go. You can stream the full 12 track tape below, cop it via iTunes, and download 4 choice songs off the tape for free here. Get the stream and words from Sky, after the jump.

With this project, I wanted it to be a bridge between “The Great Debater” and “A Dream Deferred”. This mixtape literally picks up where “The Great Debater” left off and leads you directly into “A Dream Deferred." The tape is split into 2 parts, Theo Huxtable and JJ Evans. The first half of the tape has me rhyming as if I were Theo, with the world from his point of view. Being well off, having to live up to a family's expectations due to their success, etc. The second half is from JJ's view, with the sound being slightly more aggressive and the stories built with an "in need of something" attitude. The tape is the idea of the vast contrasts of a life that my people and I dreamed of and aspired to as kids (Theo) versus a life that was more of our reality (J.J). This one is for US. Enjoy
