The entire song is called “Bars & Hooks (Keep It Moving [K.I.M.]).” Harry Fraud on the beat, and a bunch of talented emcees on the raps make for one good combination.

Week 12 of Shakespeare’s New Music Tuesday series.
This week we get the lead/buzz single from the homie Shakespeare.
The story behind it is an interesting one. A couple years ago, I was being courted by a bunch of major labels which culminated with a deal on Universal. Before landing the deal, I’d have meetings with A&R’s who would be like, “you’re dope, but we don’t know what to do with you”. All the while I’d be balancing schoolwork and hustling music. Although things didn’t pan out as I wished, I learned that the industry’s business model is built on competition, not innovation. So instead of chasing the status quo, I began to really embrace the things that made me different. Although I’m 2 years removed from it, graduating Summa Cum Laude is one such thing. So while we often hear about drug dealers, grandiose living or rappers dropping out, I’m the proud graduate! (For the record, although I maintained a 4.0 for several consecutive semesters, my final GPA was a 3.85).
Something new from the homie Shakespeare and Jon Solo (together known as Mix Mssg).
And it continues… Week 8 brings “Something’s Gotta Give” (prod. by Graphic) which is an honest and vulnerable explanation to my hiatus last year. Many people asked, “what happened after the buzz of “Skinny Jeans” and “The British Invasion”? I was going through a very tough period personally. So despite the positive momentum, I fell back in order to pull the pieces together. Point is, things are better, I’m great, and its fueled tons of great song ideas and projects!! This happens to be one of them. The song features the homie, Exlib, and he goes in.
