Coming up in this game means innovation and taking risks. The artists we pick show that innovation, that ability to take risks, while at the same time showing a hunger for success that’s essential in this business.<

ShaqIsDope is stuck in a duality between love and lust. “Cali Love” is the latest single from ShaqIsDope and it’s a vibe. Shaq makes music for those hot Summer days and cold nights. He’s reminiscent of Drake, searching for happiness through women and he’s not afraid to hide that. Shaq brings listeners in with his easy-on-the-ears melodies, mixing singing with his well-focused rapping. He brings you back to the nights of heartbreak, and the mornings after memorable evenings. Between love and lust, is there a silver lining? Check out his latest single, “Cali Love” below:
Dougie Drew makes anthems for plugs worldwide. On “Grams” featuring Dizzy Wright, Dougie moves like a vet, delivering a hazy flow over an icy trap beat. This is the type of song you need an eighth of backwoods packed to. This is a song you listen to when you’re breaking up or bagging weed. Between the two rappers is enough smoke to inebriate California state. Dougie and Dizzy complement one another, making rapping seem nearly effortless. Check out their new single below:
