Ebro Darden, VP of Programming at Hot 97 and Beats 1 anchor, rates ShaqIsDope as one of the best to do it from his city when talking to Complex Canada about its Hip-Hop scene.

Toronto recording artist ShaqIsDope released a new track called ‘Blame Game’ recently. His wordplay is always spectacular, from top to bottom. This time, each line is perfectly woven, conveying his message about backstabbing, racial injustices, ideations of suicide, and abusing substances. On the record, the skilled rapper battles with his thoughts, talk about resilience and perseverance, and more. The hook doubles down on purpose and accountability.

Listen to the T-Nyce production below, and be on the lookout for ShaqIsDope’s forthcoming album ‘Life and Times’.
