The Incomparable Shakespeare & Troy Ave Get Money on ‘Franklin Jackson’
Brooklyn’s in the house as The Incomparable Shakespeare and Troy Ave connect on ‘Franklin Jackson.’ The BK upstarts repackage classic New York paper-chasing anthems for modern day listeners, even borrowing a line from Nas‘ ‘Illmatic’ classic, ‘The World Is Yours.’
“I’m out for Presidents to represent me [get money] / If it doesn’t come effortlessly they get funny,” Shakespeare opens. With a slick middle verse, Troy — fresh off the release of his impressive LP, ‘New York City: The Album‘ — boldly declares himself the savior of hip-hop’s birthplace: “New York City, Harry Powder, I’m the savior.”
‘Franklin Jackson’ will appear on The Incomparable Shakespeare’s upcoming EP, ‘By Any Dreams Necessary.’ It serves as the follow-up to his summer mixtape, ‘#InvincibleDream,’ which was hosted by MTV and Shade 45′s Sway Calloway.
