Brooks Sterritt picks out lines from the Bard that feel oddly at home in contemporary hip-hop. A few favorites:

“I’ll teach you how to flow.” (The Tempest)

“He speaks plain cannon fire, and smoke and bounce.” (King John)

“Holla, you clown!” (As You Like It)

“Trip no further, pretty sweeting.” (Twelfth Night)
