The Incomparable Shakespeare borrows from Goapele’s “Closer” to let off a clip of bars in anticipation of his upcoming By Any Dreams Necessary LP.
A child of New York in an era when New York was breaking ground and setting standards in hip-hop, Shake’s music adheres to an anachronistic code. Infiltrating the conventional mainstream channels, Shake is proving that he doesn’t need to sacrifice craft or complexity to reach a wider audience.
After delivering a buttery smooth verse reminiscing on his Flatbush childhood and flexing his rhyme muscle, Shake saves the actual boasts for the outro. If you enjoy letting tapes rock till they pop, Shakespeare’s your guy.
