The hip hop artist known as Bonez has released his latest official single “Shoot for the Sky,” feat. Eric Slater. The track has been proudly published on the Harvest Puff Productionz independent music label. Based on big bass lines, rattling rhythms and uplifting lines and rhymes, “Shoot for the Sky” is a hip hop and pop collaboration with something for every modern music fan.
Bonez and Eric Slater cite as main artistic influences for “Shoot for the Sky,” Logic, Hopsin, Chris Webby, Eminem, and Tech N9ne. Their “Shoot for the Sky” single will appeal to listeners of these titans right away, but the song has elements belonging to itself, alone. It’s a new sound for a new era.
Produced by Cory “Cnote” Yothers (Snoop Dogg, Nikki Flores, Christoper Breaux/Frank Ocean), “Shoot for the Sky” is specifically produced to fuse elements of Bonez’s and Slater’s signature music styles.
Harvest Puff Records writes of this, “The resulting song is the feel-good anthemic banger ‘Shoot for the Sky,’ alternatively titled ‘Feel Me.’ The sessions were so fun and successful that we signed Bonez to an EP production deal, together forming the recording and production company, Harvest Puff Productionz.”
