The DJBooth is a great place for talented up-and-comers to showcase their skills and (hopefully) grab a few fans so, when the Opportunity Knocks, you would be wise to follow through like ShaqIsDope. Looking to build a buzz for his upcoming project, Early Beginnings:The Shaquille Baptiste Story, Shaq seizes the opportunity and knocks it out of the park. Setting the stage on this lyrically-driven cut, producer Pitt Tha Kid cooks up a loosely-structured, chiming beat. Though the beat is staggered and airy, it doesn’t give Shaq any trouble. He laces the instrumental with some dense, introspective bars, delivering his rhymes in a crisp, unabashed flow. While you wait for the aforementioned project, why not check out Shaq’s other Booth features, starting with November’s Just Believe?
