The Incomparable Shakespeare ft. Sophia Lauren - Something 2 Believe

Posted 4 years ago
Producer:
Tiger-VS-Cobra
Album:
None (Promo Single)

It’s been a rough past few years

decade for the New York Knicks, unless your idea of a good time is watching Isiah Thomas run one of the NBA’s proudest franchises into the ground. But the team still holds a place in New Yorkers hearts, and a new crew of ballers led by Amare and Melo are giving the city Something 2 Believe in. Returning the favor is NYC native and uniquely named emcee The Incomparable Shakespeare, who provides Madison Square Garden a new fourth quarter comeback anthem with his new single. Producer Tiger-VS-Cobra (yep, that’s his name) crafts a stadium sized beat for Believe, adding a symphony worth of strings over a crunching percussion line. It’s the inspirational fuel Shake needs to drop rhymes sure to get the crowd on its feet without abandoning some more light hearted nerd references (word to Star Fleet and Soul Caliber). Throw in a perfectly delivered hook from Sophia Lauren and you’ve got a cut worthy of Amare and crew – now if they could only land Chris Paul. Hey, we all need something to believe in, right?
