In the music industry “love” songs come in all shapes and sizes, evolving over the years from Boyz 2 Men to Usher to R. Kelly and beyond (anyone remember Rick Astley? Me neither). In its purest form, however, the love song (and artist) manage to come full circle and create an ode worthy of its origins: a dedication to hip-hop itself. Enter Franklin Rossman, better known as The Incomparable Shakespeare (one of the most creative aliases I’ve seen to date), who’s created a tribute worthy of such weighty subject matter - Wonderwall. While producer Silver’s remixes the popular Oasis track, Shake oozes both sincerity (over the trials and tribulations he’s shared with the genre) and confidence (in the fact that he has something important to contribute to his beloved culture) over. This is the first leak from his new project, British Invasion, which listeners should welcome with open arms. Stay tuned to the Booth for more information.
