Shall I compare The Incomparable Shakespeare to an average emcee? He art far more dope and much more creative. Apparently unsatisfied with just one hip-hop/British rock hybrid (check his last cut Wonderwall), Shake is back to give The Beatles’ uber-classic song Eleanor Rigby a decidedly harder edge with the worldwide premiere of his new track Lonely People. Centered around captivating production by Silver that takes the original song’s sharp violin harmonies and adds an undercurrent of heavy percussion to achieve true banger status. Lyrically Shake lives us to his very lofty name, spitting tales that flip between scenes of a peaceful suburban neighborhood and a soldier at war in Iraq: “It was a suicide bomber, now he’s torn between trauma and honor.” Now that’s what I call creativity. For more genre-busting material be sure to check out his forthcoming project The British Invasion, co-presented by DJBooth.net and OnSmash and due to drop on December 18.
