Brooklyn New York native Skoob Boogee Bang also known as “Skoob” and “Books in Reverse” is one half of the Platinum selling Hip-Hop super duo DAS EFX. Skoob Boogee Bang announces his signing to Mayimba Music with a distribution deal for the release of his first solo album titled “Resilience” later this year.
As a member of trendsetting and iconic Hip-Hop duo DAS EFX, Skoob and his partner in rhyme “Krazy Drayz” designed and created a new sound for hip-hop in the 90’s. Their rhyme style has been referred to as “one of the most distinctive and influential lyrical styles in early-'90’s hip-hop.” The DAS EFX sound was so different, it influenced an industry of pioneers and artist who entered the scene after their debut; to adopt their style. “Dead Serious” was the group’s debut album which soared to platinum success. The duo worked with Brooklyn based producers’ (and high school friends of Skoob) Derek Lynch and the late Chris Charity of Solid Scheme. The “Dead Serious” album has been hailed as one of best albums released in the 90’s. Skoob was also instrumental in creating the look and style of the DAS EFX brand. Their rough, grungy/rugged style- with baggy jeans and construction boots; had young men (and women) from east to the west trying to emulate their style. Currently Skoob & Krazy Drayz (DAS EFX) continue to tour the US and abroad delivering their fans those classic hits and rhyme flows they’re known for.
Born and raised in Brooklyn New York, Skoob is among an elite group of Brooklyn bread emcees such as Jay-z, Big Daddy Kane, MC Lyte and the late Notorious BIG to name a few. His love for emceeing began in his high school days- and he continued to develop his craft and remained passionate about the culture. Never changing from his Brooklyn influences, his lyrics were featured in The Source Magazines “Hip Hop quotable – Dopest Rhyme of the Month”.
Music isn’t Skoob’s only passion. While working on his solo album, Skoob Boogee Bang ventured into the world of business and launched his very own cigar line titled “Resilience”.
While touring outside of the US, Skoob developed a liking and interest in premium cigars and decided to develop his own line.
Skoob’s first solo album “Resilience” promises to deliver a completely different sound and rhyme flow than his ever so familiar DAS EFX style. Skoob will be on his own and is eager to show the world who he is as a solo emcee. This album will include a variety of songs which take you on a musical journey. Brilliant lyrics, great punch lines, head nodding tracks, action packed story lines, and conscious topics will lend something refreshing and exciting for all listeners. On production Skoob worked with various heavy hitter producers to ensure his album had a fresh and exciting sound to accompany his rhyme style. Producers such as Frequency, who’s credited for work with artists such as Rhianna, Eminem, Snoop Dog and B.O.B., Producer/Composer extraordinaire Keith Harris who is known for work on projects with Madonna, Black Eyed Peas, Nicki Minaj, Estelle and more! And It would only make sense for Skoob to revisit where it all started by reconnecting with producer and friend Derek Lynch from Solid Scheme for the album.
