Macklife – Classic Sam Cooke Tribute [Video]
Vancouver, BC – There are many things that can be said about Yung Macklife – what with his insolent, incessant beefing with whomever in Vancity he can target – but we won’t say them. What we will say is that he’s descended from Motown royalty as the grandson of Sam Cooke and son of Womack & Womack, and has some big shoes to fill. The young artist claims that “my mom and my dad always pumped the Sam Cooke records, and I think I was always supposed to do something to take on his legacy.” This tribute to his grandfather is kind of a rough cut but nonetheless it caught our eye here at HipHopCanada so we thought we’d share it around. Track off Macklife’s The International Volume 3 mixtape, and video by K.O.J Productions.
