Another new song from The Incomparable Shakespeare, which is part of his weekly series providing new music. Here’s what ShakyBaby had to say about it:

This week’s song is a joint I’m featured on called “Art of War”. My boys, The Faculty, who just inked a deal with EMI, give us that raw NY boom bap. It’s produced by Domingo.

Here’s “Art of War” by The Faculty ft. The Incomparable Shakespeare. Enjoy!

Here’s the write-up from The Incomparable Shakespeare:

This week’s leak is a special one because it’s actually my lead off/buzz single. It’s part anti-stereotype manifesto, part “eff the establishment”, all the while celebrating academic excellence. 

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).

Enjoy!
