When it comes to talent, specifically in the urban genre market; Toronto has been on the up and up lately. Of course, mainstays and heavy hitters like Drake, The Weeknd and even Justin Bieber are to be noted, but I’m speaking about the cats like Jazz Cartier, River Tiber, and yes… even Tory Lanez. Somebody who’s well on his way to carrying the maple torch with the aforementioned artists is fellow 6 native Shaqisdope. After tearing up the Spring last year with the tape, Black Frames, as well as keeping it fresh with freestyles like his XXL proclamation of disgust — seriously, c’mon Vanessa — the kid is back with the aggressive new single, “Power.”
Produced by Andreonthebeat, the track is an ode to the 50-Cent produced show by the same name, and you can feel that exact energy. While the Tdot emcee sticks true to his melodic approach that has execs seeing crossover appeal, Shaq takes the opportunity to address the wannabees and the posers with the lines, “Who you know come off the bench, drop double digits all season. That’s Shaqisdope, got the scoreboard uneven,” and my personal favorite, “Fingers up to my enemies/ They made a list of Toronto rappers, only thing y’all ever be.” With Shaq releasing tracks like this along with completed his self-titled project, it looks like the 4th Quarter of 2017 is gearing up to be a fun one for Shaq & co.
Check out the single, “Power” below and get hip.
