Even though his debut, The Salvation, was pretty solid, Skyzoo's strongest moments always appear on his mixtapes. Be it his mixtape-centric release with Illmind, Live from the Tape Deck, or this year's The Great Debater, the Brooklyn rapper is at his best when he's not confined to the parameters of a typical album. As such, tracks like "Atypical," his latest single off The Great Debater, work so well because Sky's relaxed and just rapping over a bare-bones beat. Equally minimalist is the video, which just features him spitting bars surrounded by four females. Flashiness isn't necessary when you can rap like this.
