J The S ft. Pill & Franco Anthony - Simple Man

Posted 4 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Franco Anthony
Album:
The Last Days

As anyone who plays the guitar, or even plays Guitar Hero, already knows, Lynard Skynard’s Simple Man is simply one of the better rock songs ever written. While the original’s roots lay in Southern rock, its spirit is universal – even New England rappers like J The S were obviously inspired by the track’s timeless message. Producer Franco Anthony does the heavy lifting in transforming Simple Man from rock to rock-rap, playing drums and bringing in Alex Bodnar to play the track’s scorching bass and guitar sections. It’s the perfect setting for J The S to bring in yet more of his realer than real raps, vowing to set aside life’s endless distractions to simply concentrate on what truly matters. While Pill’s tastes are more hedonistic, his hedonism is also of the simple kind: all he’s asking for are some “cash to clutch and a bad b**tch to back it up.” Keeping in the spirit of the track, I’ll close by making things as simple as possible. J The S’ upcoming album, Last Days, drops via The DJBooth next Wednesday, January 18. You should download it. It doesn’t get any more simple than that.
