ShaqIsDope "DWNTWN" [Official Video]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

ShaqIsDope, made his OKP debut with his track “DWNTWN” a month ago. Today, the toronto emcee makes his return with some visuals for the aforementioned track. This time around not just spitting about it, but giving us a tour of his side of the city. Says ShaqIsDope: "I initially made 'DWNTWN' for me and all friends who are from downtown Toronto… But as I travel around the world more I notice there's a downtown in almost every city. And I think people are always quick to point to the shopping districts of these cities but forget about the low-income areas nearby.” Watch the Bowen Mei directed visual, below. Look for SHaqIsDope’s Black Frames project to drop later this year.
