To celebrate their special edition mystery collection of vinyl that hits stores Friday Apollo & Skyzoo wanted to release the new visuals for Jordans & A Gold Chain shot in Calvan Fowler’s Brooklyn spot “Jordan Heads.”
“When I wrote this song, the idea was to really zero in on what we were told as youngins’ in my neighborhood what was important. To us, the small wins of a pair of Jordans and a gold chain meant the world, and with that in mind some of us lived on a “by any means” aspect and did whatever it took to fulfill those desires. Whether right or wrong, we all aimed for the same things where I’m from, and this record is a testament of those moments,” says Skyzoo.
“Sonically I wanted to give this record something that was minimal, gritty, and straight to the point; almost underproduced. Skyzoo did his thing, talking about a topic that I think we can all relate to as younger folk. It was always a goal to be one of the “haves”, instead of the “have-nots”. Jordan’s and a Gold chain gave that representation,” adds Apollo Brown.
There are 4 different vinyl color-ways, each limited to 500 copies and shipped randomly to stores all over the world. Post a picture of yours when it arrives!
