Just a few short weeks after earning positive Booth reviews for Opportunity Knocks, ShaqIsDope returns to our pages with another fresh single off his forthcoming street album. On this downbeat cut, the T-Dot representative reflects on the monotony of his daily grind and wonders if he might not be Living in a Dream. Lucky for fans, his skeptical outlook hasn’t diminished his determination to succeed—awake or asleep, he’s gonna get his shine. Over Muvafux‘s production, a pensive, trap-tinged flip of Lakeview’s Visions of My Mind, Shaq assures us that it’s only a matter of time before he’s clawed his way to the game’s apex: “My future’s set in stone / This some heat to set the tone.” Topped off with some head-spinning double-time flows, this cut is just one of many quality jams slated to appear on Early Beginnings:The Shaquille Baptiste Story. Watch for the project to drop digitally this Wednesday, February 26.
