UK award winning rapper ShaoDow drop his next video and single ‘DropKickMan’ presented by GRM Daily

Recent winner of the AIM 2017 Music Award's Hardest Working Artist and hailed as ‘one of the hardest working rappers’ in the industry by BBC 1Xtra's DJ Semtex, ShaoDow still remains fiercely independent.

His debut Fire in the Booth  on the Charlie Sloth BBC 1Xtra  show was billed as ‘incredible’ by GRM Daily  who described ShaoDow’s freestyle as “something different in a congested scene and definitely… refreshing.”

The music website said: “Shao literally goes off with a flow that sees him act as a lyrical dojo and even spitting in Japanese.”

The enterprising performer is the first ever artist to run his own pop-up shop in major shopping centres across the UK selling his popular merchandise and headphone brand through his company, DIY Gang Entertainment.

Now we present his latest video below for #DropKickMan, which has already shot up to just below 30k views on You Tube within five days, and has been selected for Spotify’s ‘Grime Shutdown’ playlist this week.

ShaoDow, is a UK Hip Hop and Grime recording artist carving a distinctively different independent path with the release of his third album 'シャウ道The Way of Shao which comes with a Japanese Manga comic book of the same name.

With features from Krizz Kaliko, Papoose, Dot Rotten, Genesis Elijah  and more, the South-East London musician is using his latest offering to showcase the technical brilliance of his Katana-sharp rapping which is laced with super smart lyricism that doesn’t overreach for a punch line but surpasses regular wordplay with some seriously complex literary techniques.

Delivering blow after blow of great double entendres, metaphors, homophones, similes and imagery, ShaoDow is a rap artist, very much on the rise, who has crafted his uniqueness.

BBC6 Music’s Tom Robinson  said: ‘A brilliant rapper with a wonderful flow.’

A disciplined and self-challenging artist, ShaoDow speaks French and Japanese, has a law degree and years of training in various martial arts including Shaolin Kung Fu in China.

His single ‘Till The Casket Drops’ ft. Serocee, Durrty Goodz, AC & Papoose received strong rotation on the BBC Introducing Playlist, BBC Radio 1, BBC 1Xtra and Kerrang amongst others.

In the live arena Shao is a force to be reckoned with, he has opened for legends like Stormzy, Skepta, Tech N9ne, Wiley  and Akala, appeared at Reading  and Leeds  festivals and performed across Europe, South America and Asia.

The single is out now and available here
