The Incomparable Shakespeare - New York Swagger

Posted about 8 years ago
Producer:
The Protractorz
Album:
Shakespearean Premier

A true emcee is a real piece of work.  “How noble in mission, how infinite in creativity, in lyrics and swagger, how express and admirable.”  The preceding quote, that Hamlet said with irony, I now adapt with pure conviction, as today an underground rapper by the name of The Incomparable Shakespeare brings his New York Swagger to the Booth. Continuing in the tradition of fellow borough-bred lyricists like Biggie, Jay-Z, Papoose, and Maino (sounding most like the latter), Shakes obviously loves being from the Big Apple, though he’s “not trying to bring New York Back/just personality back to New York rap.”  Those who love the old-school should be happy about The Protractorz’ beat, which brings some new life to a stale topic.  To cop, or not to cop?  That should be an easy question for fans to answer, once The Incredible Shakespeare’s debut album, Shakespearean Premier, is released.
