    “I make FRESH rhymes DAILY…”

    Let DT tell you about a rapper named Fresh and the others he’s been listening to in his comments box.

    “I make fresh rhymes daily…” – Special Ed “I GOT IT MADE”

    Two weeks ago I went out to a party for NBA 2K7 at Home nightclub in Midtown Manhattan. If you aren’t down with the Xbox Live underworld, 2K7 is the newest version of the long running basketball video game franchise that has me yelling at my TV on the weekends. I’m signed on to Xbox Live as Daydog, so if you see me online be easy homie, I just might screw up ya win/loss record.

    The venue was packed to the hilt with some corny industry types (me not included), with a few cool peeps sprinkled about. A Tribe Called Quest was in the building (without Q-Tip of course). I had a Sadat X (of Brand Nubian) sighting. NY Knicks Q Rich and Nate Rob were in there buggin’ on the sticks, getting smacked on the court like in real life! (I love the Knicks tho). While case’n the joint I ran into Shaq, who is on the cover of 2K7 for the second straight year. Dude had on a three-piece suit (without the main third piece, the blazer…) to match up with his Shaq sneakers, go figure. Waiting for the velvet rope to move so I can hit up the sectioned off area and greet Shaq, I was approached by DJ Vinyl Richie (Rhymefest’s tour DJ) and his friend who introduced himself as Fresh Daily. I laughed when I heard his name, cus I immediately thought of the Special ED line above. He said, “Yep, I’m an MC.” I thought the name was clever enough to think that dude had to have some good rhymes. I figured he would hit me with a link to his Myspace page like everyone else (check my last blog, thanks for the links y’all…keep them coming), but dude hit me with a tagged up mixtape CD. Graffiti with ill colors I thought…ok, we could have something here. I handed one to DJ Clue of Power 105FM and dude gave me another one. I skated out the spot and planned on checking his CD out on my ride home, but ended up yakking on my cell.

    Got in the car the next morn’ and popped the joint in. No high hopes, just wanting to hear some good shit, and that’s exactly what my ears got to experience.
    Fresh Daily’s Mad Flavas the Mixtape is dope. Point blank. I didn’t realize he is from Brooklyn ‘til a few songs in (another point, I can’t help it yall, I’m BK all day). His flow sticks on top of beats like driftwood on water and can adapt to whatever tempo is thrown at him. One of my favorites is “Super Spectacular”, ill piano and horn loops like if Pete Rock did a song for Willy Wonka (whatever that means). Rap topics range from his love of New York, to growing up broke, to his excellence on the mic. Some real ‘92-’93 shit. His look is backpack swirled with internet genius/fly street wear gear. Most rappers that wear glasses are dope, just an observation I’ve had from back in the day (see Large Pro, Lupe Fiasco, Zev Love X, help me name some more).

    The CD’s inside jacket says that Fresh has an album dropping in Summer ’06 (?) titled Fresh Daily is the Gorgeous Killa in Crimes of Passion. We’ll see what’s up with dude. I felt I should share this with yall cus of my last blog. The new music gods musta been reading Crown Jewels and threw this at me. Been listening to it all day. Gonna need some new shit though, so keep it all coming. Don’t think I’m not checking the comments box. Duss Smite you doing it homie. Hakim thanks for the verbals. Some of you southern cats are puttin’ in work, so I tilt my fitted. Hit me.

    He’s definitely a person everyone can listen too. I’m not really into Hip Hop (more of an R&B/Jazz person) But when I heard the “MAD FLAVAS” put down by fresh daily I was hooked. This is my favorite CD when I’m cleaning and when its time for a road trip. Big Ups to Fresh Daily!!!

    Amen says:
    That’s the homie right there. Glad to see Fresh gettin’ respect. There’s a lot of bangers on that mix CD. Can’t wait for the album to hear the whole version of “Dead Sexy” and that track “Star(r)” is nothing short of super spectacular.

    Not only is he a dope MC, but he is a gifted artist-illustrator as well. He illustrated my children’s book, CINDER-RAPPER and the response from the intended audience (urban elementary school age youngsters) has been positive. Check him out!

    Sky-o Aka Tha Prince Of Tha Stuy says:
    Straight Out Of Bedford Stuyversant, is SKY-O. A talent entertainer who is destined to make his mark on the world. He grew up in a musical household full of gospel,classic R&B, soul music. As a young child in the first grade, SKY-O fell in love with R&B and began singing. No one could tell him that he couldn’t sing. He sang Jodeci and Hi-Five every night before he went to sleep. Lets Fast forward to the mid 90s, SKY-O’s older brother introduced him to hip-hop/rap music. He fell in the love with the music once he heard it. He listened to classic albums, such as Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, Wu-Tang’s 36 Chambers, and Biggie’s Ready To Die. One of the first tapes he every listened to and studied was Nas-It Was Written, and from then on he knew he wanted to do music. Music was not the only thing SKY-O studied. While attending Public School 308, he got real busy in his books. His mother stressed education, while his father stressed hard work and dedication. Once he entered High School, SKY-O began writing rhymes every day after school. His Music was his place of refuge. All of his anger went into his rhymes. That anger and seriousness came forward when he would battle fellow Mc’s in the hallways of Boys & Girls HS. Battling became SKY-O’s sport in high school. ITtwas his way of showing his talents and letting those know he could flow. Having tremendous wittiness with words he was able to embarrass mc’s easily. It was around that time SKY-O, was giving his name. His home boy Donnell, passed him the name SKY, he ran with it ever since. Later on his homeboy Isa called him SKY-O and it stuck. After getting his name , every mc needs a alias, feeling Confident and great, SKY-O began calling himself the “Prince Of The Stuy ” The name explains itself. After Graduating High School, and entering Baruch College, SKY-O began working on putting out a mixtape. After months of work he came out with: Sky’s Tha Limit Vol. 1 : Tha Mixtape. Being that SKY-O has a unique personality, he hosted his mixtape under his Alias: ” THe Prince Of The Stuy.” As We speak, SKY-O Has performed at various clubs around and various talent showcases. He is an on-air personality for Baruch College Radio WBMB 87.9 Tha Bizz. His show, the Top 10 countdown airs every Thursday from 1-2pm, You can listen by going to http://www.wbmbradio.com. In Addition, SKY-O is currently working on his new mixtape Sky’s Tha Limit Vol 2: Tha Rebirth. He is looking to work with any producers and artist that are serious about making music. He is ready to make his name known form the streets of the Brooklyn, to the tribes in South Africa. SKY-O is a true talent. He has a gift that goes beyond his music. After one conversation with him you will realize that he is not your ordinary person or artist. Music is only one side of his talents He is a complete comedian at heart and you will fall in love with him from being in his presence only a couple of times. SKY-O is one in a billion, who is not perusing a his music career for fame. SKY-O’s has his eyes on not only music and entertainment. If his music career does not workout, SKY-O said he would like to own various mixtape shops and barber shops in his neighborhood or even be a Pop Warner football coach. SKY-O is the Truth and Soon You’ll Understand Why…..Stay Tuned
