ShakeemX favors a sample-based style of production that recalls the work of J Dilla, which, as powerful as it may be requires a certain adeptness on the mic. Luckily, the rapper rises to the occasion, delivering a solid two-part track with "The Beginning", which hopefully be the first of many great efforts we hear from him.
"The Beginning" has placed the rapper among this week's final four Heatseekers. If you like to have your song or video featured on the site, you can submit content to us here.
They won't block my shine
Like the eclipse
I'm too brilliant
So what you mean?
Shakeem's as hard as it gets?
Now you don't make it rain
'Cause your hoes barely get wet
