Rock City - Survivor Anthem

Album:
Unreleased

With his most recent single, Young Money megastar Drake earned massive Booth attention and nearly unanimous acclaim – if ever there was a hard act to follow, Find Your Love is it. Always up for a challenge, though, Virgin Islands-bred duo (and exclusive freestyle series contributors) Rock City tackle Jimmy Brooks’ smash-hit on their latest freestyle, Survivor Anthem. Here, brothers Da Spokesman and Don’t Talk Much trade the original’s female-oriented lyrics for much grittier fare, lacing Kanye West‘s 808s & Heartbreak-esque, piano-led boardwork with empathetic meditations on the struggle to survive in these tough times. Though I’d be surprised to see this revamp outdo the original where Booth ratings are concerned, the down-to-earth soul Rock City serve up here has its own, undeniable appeal – what do you think, Booth readers? Survivor Anthem isn’t set for inclusion on any forthcoming release, but those who like what they’re hearing should keep it locked for the latest on their ongoing campaign to PTFAO, as well as any other upcoming projects.
