The official video for the new single “Give It Up” featuring DJ Prince. Produced by !llmind (Kanye West, 50 Cent, Ludacris, Scarface), the single mashes vintage dirty hip hop drums and 808s with dubstep grime, is a staple of !llmind’s new signature “boom-trap” sound, which can most recently be found via his production on “The Morning” by Kanye West & G.O.O.D. Music off of the Cruel Summer album. Topped with Sky’s signature “slick talk” lyricism, the song is a subwoofer’s dream come true.
With the highly anticipated sophomore album “A Dream Deferred” set for a 10/2 release date, we present to you the new single “Give It Up” (feat.

Skyzoo describes the cover, drawn by Chilean artist Fabian Ciraolo (www.fabianciraolo.blogspot.com) as a perfect representation to what the album sounds like. Skyzoo goes on to explain that “the idea was to demonstrate the feel of being in a dream and I wanted the album to represent that visually as well. Fabian’s work contains his signature star speckled background on all of his designs, so it made sense to use him with the stars representing a dreamy atmosphere. He’s an incredible artist and did an excellent job of bringing the theme of the album to life.”
