Premiere: Skyzoo's "FGR (First Generation Rich)"

- About this Video
- "FGR (First Generation Rich) is a cut off Skyzoo's upcoming mixtape, "Theo VS JJ (Dreams vs. Reality)," which drops Wednesday, August 29, as a free stream. It will also be available for download for only $4.99 on iTunes.
"The idea for #FGR came from me watching an Oprah Winfrey special on the Miami Heat's recent title win; she asked Dwyane Wade about his life now, as opposed to when he was a kid in Chicago. He went on to talk about being the first one in his family to have any type of ‘real money.’ In doing so, he used a slogan: 'first generation rich.'
"Oprah acknowledged said slogan, thus signaling that she'd known of/used the term as well when describing what that new-found life turns into, and just like that it hit me: FGR. First Generation Rich. The idea of being the first one in your family -- the first generation on your side -- to make it."
Song produced by Jahlil Beats. Video directed by Pacool for Chancleta Films.
Skyzoo's "Theo VS JJ (Dreams vs. Reality)" is a prelude to Skyzoo's upcoming album "A Dream Deferred," out October 2 on The Faculty / Duck Down Music Inc.
