Listen to a new a cappella arrangement from The Hamiltones titled "Respect," inspired by Birdman's Breakfast Club interview.
Birdman's interview on The Breakfast Club last week lasted under two minutes, but it included enough choice soundbites to create an endless array of viral content. The latest spin-off of the hilarious interview comes from The Hamiltones, a trio of back-up vocalists for esteemed R&B singer Anthony Hamilton. The singers decided to memorialize Bird's message to Charlamagne tha God and the rest of The Breakfast Club by turning a few of his quotes into an a cappella song. Those weary of the Birdman memes should definitely appreciate this innovative take on Birdman's quotables, as "Put some respek on it" fits amazingly well into a gospel arrangement.
The three immensely talented singers perform their rendition on the spot while chilling in the back of their tourbus. Aside from Birdman's legendary line about respek, which forms the backbone of their song, The Hamiltones also seamlessly incorporate quotes like "but that ain't gangsta," "all tree of y'all," and "are we finished or is we done."
