Franky $horts – Pink Mountains (Celebrating Life Remix) [Audio]

Calgary, ABFranky $horts recently released a sweet new joint entitled “Pink Mountains” off his forthcoming Show and Tell project. This track is a remix of Casey Veggie and Rockie Fresh’s “Celebrating Life” joint (which was produced by Rob Holladay and YOG$).

But this 18-year-old Toronto-raised, Calgary-based MC puts a fresh spin on things. It’s still got the same underlying YOLO message of the original track. But Franky gets all cheeky, and stuff. Check it out below and keep it locked on the release of Show and Tell.

Franky gets this nice hook going that’s all like, “If I f*cked around and died today/Make sure I come back as a hologram/And fly away.” One can only deduce that he’s making reference to the greatness that was Tupac reincarnated in the form of a hologram at Coachella 2012. If it’s not a reference to that, the dude’s got some pretty weird aspirations. There’s also a solid Even Stevens and Shia LaBeouf reference, which probably wouldn’t have been relevant under most circumstances. But it works. And it’s great.
