In terms of Hip-Hop, the New York City borough of Staten Island has not had many new faces emerge into the spotlight. With that said, Shoalin native Sha has been changing the narrative. Having collaborated with several notable talents and making his rounds in the club circuit with major DJs spinning his tunes in the nightclubs, The Park Hill area native reveals the visual for his breakthrough single “Patrick Ewing.” Named after the New York Knicks basketball legend, Sha likens his prowess in music and on the street to that of the NBA Hall of Famer. Be sure to pick up the single on iTunes and follow Sha on Instagram & Twitter @Sha225si.
$ha brings the underground to you on his new project.
Toronto’s underground legend might just be ready to break through with his new project GTA6: Live From The Underground which formally stands for ‘Greater Toronto Area’ (and we already know the 6). $ha Hustle who now goes by simply $ha recruits TRIPSIXX, Dej Loaf and Roy Wood$ for the 10 track project that features production from $ha himself, BatmanOnTheBeatz, Eric Dingus, Chris Rose and STRETCH. The sound borders on a unique intersection of Psychedelic Rock and 808s paired with gritty, inspirational lyrics. The entire project repersents the underground subculture that he has been a part of for a long time. Take a listen below and judge for yourself.
