"One of British hip hop's most distinctive voices."
If the media in his homeland are lavishing praise on ArrDee it’s not out of fear of his mother’s black belt in kickboxing but thanks to ‘Pier Pressure’. On his fantastic mix tape debut the charismatic rapper combines playful rhymes with seductive beats: the perfect marriage.
At only 14, he amazed the crowd at his very first open mic in the UK. It was then and there he decided that music was his home. Shaka’s inspirations come from many places; hip hop, grime, reggae, house music… he approaches it his own way and takes what he likes to find “different sized pieces of a music puzzle fitting perfectly”. Throw on his very recognizable nostalgic voice and you get that Shaka sound. This young talent is one to be watched!
