BK spitter Skyzoo resurrects Chi-Ali on this one. Sky released the original version of his 9th Wonder-produced single “Jansport Strings” a little while back; for the remix to the track on which he pays homage to Chi-Ali, the master wordsmith really tied it all together by inviting the legendary emcee to the booth to do himself some justice on the cut. The verse was the first that Chi recorded since being released from prison after serving a 12-year stint for second-degree murder. He states that he’s:
Back from the dead like it’s Easter and I’m Christ and I’m, here for them checks like the sneakers and them Nikes
Chi-Ali is wastin no time on a resurgence. “Jansport Strings” lives on Skyzoo’s highly anticipated LP A Dream Deferred, which will come to fruition tomorrow Oct 2. Take a listen below, and check out the official “Jansport Strings” video, plus some behind the scenes footage of the two lyricists in the lab as a bonus after the jump.
