ShaqIsDope – Emotions (Prod. mj Nichols) [Audio]

Toronto, ON – T-Dot’s own ShaqIsDope recently dropped his latest single entitled “Emotions.” You might remember this track off Shaq’s recent EP, Early Beginnings: The Shaquille Baptiste Story (shameless self-promotion: I reviewed the project and you can read it over here).

Anyways, “Emotions” is a great little joint that explores the great lengths we go to in order to avoid feeling things. That hook kills me every time: “We’ve been drinking/ Smoking/ Tryin’ to cope with our emotions.” Because despite the fact that being emotional is semi-cool now, we’re all still fronting that we have thick skin. And when the feels start to get to us, we turn to other coping mechanisms to keep our cool. Check the track below.

So. Funny story: I put Early Beginnings: The Shaquille Baptiste Story on rotation on my phone last month before we left to go out to Pemberton Music Festial, and the EP’s been making its rounds on my shuffle ever since. I was actually bumping “Emotions” a bunch on Tuesday night. So I was downright giddy when I saw ShaqIsDope had released it as a single.
