Watsky - "Strong as an Oak"


Watsky is a rapper and YouTube personality who initially made a name for himself thanks to his extremely speedy flow. While technical proficiency at this level is extremely impressive, it's just not something I take that seriously when it comes to the craft of a song, honestly.

"Strong as an Oak" is one of the first tracks I've heard from this guy that feels like a legitimately great track that could potentially grasp the attention of people outside of his admirably dedicated fanbase. Plus, I'm sure just about everybody can relate to the unfortunately universal message of being broke as a joke.

Watsky's also got a new album on the way titled Cardboard Castles. Release date: March 12th. Check a video for it here:
