Toronto rapper Shaqisdope has been busy occupying his fans with a bunch of new singles this year rather than hitting us with a project. In fact, the last project Shaqisdope released was last year’s Black Frames mixtape, but thankfully that’s about to change here soon. After hitting us with a slew of singles this year, including “King Push,” Want 2 Win,” “Power” & most recently “Facts” to name a few, Shaqisdope is about to switch things up on us and share a new self-titled EP on November 16th, which will serve as his first project of 2017.
“The ShaqIsDope EP is going to my best work to date .Thanks for being patient with me, it will be out on my birthday Nov 16,” he shared on IG last month.
But before it arrives next Thursday, the Toronto artist has a new song to share with us ahead of time called “Ble$$ings,” which was premiered by Zane Lowe on Beats 1 yesterday. Going in over production from Aaron Bow & Teddy Walton, Shaq brings the title to life & raps about the “blessings” in his life, which includes his new money & inking a deal with Adidas. “Lot of things on my plate but the main goal was to eat so/ I just signed with Adidas had stripes but they gave me three more,” he spits.
The record surfaces just a couple weeks after Shaqisdope joined forces with the original Shaq, Shaquille O’Neal, for a diss track aimed at “Man’s Not Hot” rapper Big Shaq. Check that out right here if you missed it.
Available on iTunes, take a listen to “Blessings” and let us know what you think! If you’re a fan be sure to give Shaq a follow on Twitter @Shaqisdope for all his latest news and music updates. New EP drops next week, stay tuned.
I'm more concerned with the money
I could give a damn about no relationship
We grew up together so what?
Y’all know friendship could never make me rich
