In Celebration of Us, Skyzoo’s fourth studio album and seventh overall, is an unapologetically black album.

The 15-track project is an exploration into the black community and a look at their place in society and who they are, as a people. As the rapper puts it, In Celebration of Us is the hip-hop version of Solange Knowles’ A Seat at the Table. Skyzoo touches on topics from cultural appropriation to the power of the black dollar, providing the sharp and intricate lyrics that the Brooklyn-born MC is known for.

The album features guest appearances by Raheem Devaughn, WordsNCurves, Kay Cola, Saba Abraha, and Jake & Papa. As for production, !llmind, Apollo Brown, Raheem Devaughn, Daringer, and more contributed to this interesting piece of art. You won’t find any rap features on the album, as Skyzoo tells Billboard: “I feel like I had so much to say that I didn’t need anyone to say it with me. If I could sing there wouldn’t be any singers on the album.
