What are the elements that made Jay-Z’s classic “Hardknock Life” so good? The answer’s simple – a catchy sample from the broadway play Annie and a flow and storyline to match. While Jay-Z can pull sampling just about anything off, since his masterpiece few others have dared try to sample a broadway play…until Chicago’s S-Preme arrived. To create the masterpiece that we feature below, S-Preme utilized a snippet of broadway star Kristen Chenowith’s “Wicked” song “Popular” as a chorus. S-Preme created a beat and chorus with tremendous potential – and while this alone is impressive, the best part of this song is how S-Preme’s verses fit with it. He kills it – ending the song “success is spelled with two t’s//talent time//until then im living in my mind//where im…popular.” Whether this MC becomes popular or not remains to be seen, but with songs like this he certainly could be soon – we’ll keep an eye on this talented MC in the meantime and keep you updated – for now check out the song below and download his latest, outstanding mixtape here.
