Featuring an awesome art cover, ShaqIsDope’s new track “Falling Freestyle” showcases his lyrical skills to the fullest. Spitting on a nostalgic production with horns, high keys, sped-up soul samples and a basic drum beat, the Toronto emcee’s flow is at times reminiscent another more famous spitter from the 6.
On “Falling Freestyle,” ShaqIsDope rhymes about coming up in the game, his childhood spent living in poverty and putting trust in the Almighty. He says everything is on the cusp right now. As he grows as an artist, more people are taking notice his abilities. And as the chorus sings the “quiet before the storm,” ShaqIsDope too feels that he’s about to rise.
Now I’m fully legit
Yeah, music fully equipped
Imagine how it feels to say you sold more than a brick
Beating the odds, never had to put a Glock on my hip
Or pedal rocks on the strip where they stop and they frisk
Yeah, got to keep your head up through the bad times
And say it gets better, sounding like a damn lie
My best advice is find God and get baptized
