Rising artist ShaqIsDope recently released a brand new track titled “Stay Focused.” Over a synth-laden instrumental produced by Pitt Tha Kid, the 22-year-old Toronto emcee weaves R&B-influenced melodies into his lyrically hefty verses. While we can hear the influence of the new wave Toronto sound in the track, ShaqIsDope’s sound is distinct the way he puts a strong emphasis on wordplay and rhythmic flows. Listen to the track above and be sure to look out for more from the young talent.
