Okay, Sha Stimuli is becoming the most prolific MC since Wayne went mixtape crazy before The Carter IV came out. Already with an impressive catalog of dope songs and dozens of features, Sha is hitting us with 12 albums in 12 months. This is #3, appropriately titled “The March”. I know, it’s April, but that means he wrote (and recorded and mixed) this in … do the math. I’ll wait … Â … Â … Â Okay, but it’s not really about the month of March, but the “march” towards victory, the steady grind, forward movement, both literal and symbolic.
For those of you who already know of Sha Stimuli, I ain’t gotta say nothin’. But if you are catching up, I suggest you devour and digest all these albums from The Rent Tapes series and get to know the man. This is a guy who toured with Masta Ace and The INC as a kid (his older brother is Lord Digga, currently known as “Digga”), created a massive underground buzz when he decided to emerge as an artist himself, got signed to Def Jam, then shelved due to internal politics and freed from his contract to run his own career as an independent artist. Kind of reminds me of what happened to every member of Slaughterhouse. Last I checked that was working out pretty well for them.
If you are a label, producer, manager, distribution company, magazine, etc. and wishing to do business with the man, I would holler at him now (see twitter below) and sign his rookie card now, cause after this year the price ain’t comin’ down. (Where have you heard that before? hmm).
For those doing their homework, look up a couple songs, like “MotherF*–er (The Milf Song)” and “The Smelly Cat” (make sure you type Sha Stimuli or you will get Phoebe from Friends). If you heard of Sha, but never copped one of his releases, no better time than now.
