Paisley’s chosen child, Shogun, has had a huge amount of achievements and recognition throughout the last few years. He has completely erupted into the music industry from a place which seems near-impossible to do so, and somewhere that holds few opportunities. Shogun’s talent and style have almost seen this burden as an insignificance, as since a pretty famous freestyle, he has connected his path with the right people, produced phenomenal music, developed lyrics which relate to a vast audience and appeared to always stay true to himself.
Excusing this essay of an introduction (I just rate this guy), the Northern rapper has recently delivered record after record via his Soundcloud, as well as a 6-track project – Diesho. Without letting his foot off the gas, he gifts his supporters with this latest joint, “Darling”.
A Jakebob production begins on an almost ‘Yung Lean’ aesthetic but quickly crashes down with a pounding sub bass, buoyant hi-hats and snares, and enchanting backing female samples. Alongside being a top lyricist, Shogun most certainly has a decent ear for big beats that match his style well. Showcasing a flow that is becoming infamous from the MC, he spits on his progression, rapping ability and ambitions.
In conjunction with a video date TBC, this track is one of many examples of greeze the Scottish artist is bringing and potential heights he can reach.
“Who does need smoke?”
