That’s why the NYC underground mainstay’s put it All on the Line for his music—from his reputation, to his finances, to his relationships. On the freshly-released lead single off his next full-length, Shake meditates on the many sacrifices he’s made to pursue excellence on the mic. Despite the frustration evident in his flow, he remains as dedicated to the hustle as ever; after all, he’s come much too far to turn back now.

We in the Booth will keep you supplied with the latest news and tunes leading up to the LP’s eventual release via his own Shake Ink.
