Skyzoo has unveiled the tracklist and album cover for his upcoming album A Dream Deferred, which is reportedly a continuation of his sophomore album The Salvation. As reported by XXL, the cover artist was illustrated by artist Fabian Ciraolo.
Production for the album is handled by frequent collaborators 9th Wonder, !llMind, Black Milk, as well as other notable producers such as Focus, DJ Khalil, and Best Kept Secret.
