Toronto rapper ShaqIsDope keeps it gully in the 6 with his self-titled EP ShaqIsDope.
Among the influx of Canadian rappers making headlines, ShaqIsDope aims to make sure his waves are felt throughout the world. The Toronto native made noise everywhere last year with his Black Frames mixtape, and continued to drop fire singles well into 2017 like “Facts” and “King Push”. Last month, he went viral along with the OG Shaq after they dropped their diss track for “Mans Not Hot” rapper Big Shaq. Now he’s back with his anticipated self-titled EP.
In his latest release, ShaqIsDope drops raw, introspective bars about his come up in Toronto over hazy, hard-hitting instrumentals. The project, which dropped the day after his 25th birthday (Nov. 17), holds seven tracks with production from Teddy Walton, Daniel Worthy and Jay 808, Cardiak, Lowkey X, Akilo, and Aaron Bow.
