Like I said when I posted this on Facebook last night: if we don't support songs like this, people are gonna keep thinking the only hip hop poppin' is the gangsta kind. BK, stand up!!!
This track samples "Hometown Glory" by Adele and is from a mixtape project called The British Invasion presented by OnSmash.com and DJBooth.net:
"The British Invasion is a hybrid experiment that fuses the musical aesthetics of American and UK pop. Produced exclusively by Silver, the project’s goal was to maintain the integrity of the source material while creating a rich new sound not typically found in Hip-Hop. The references are incredibly diverse and range from The Beatles to Bloc Party to Soul II Soul. I put a lot of love into every record to ensure that each has a different sound and a different approach, but more importantly, a different feel. This EP should not to be confused with the disposable mixtapes which clutter the web. This is music!"
