THE SCOOP: SHALA ESQUIRE.
I know…I know. You’ve probably been asking “what happened to the music posts?”…sorry, been crazy hectic around these parts but you know we always have something fresh for you when we drop a music post. See it’s not about quantity people, quality is what we’re about. With that said let me introduce you to something fresh – Shala Esquire. The homie Shala is an MC out of Chicago that was previously signed to Universal as part of the rap group – Qualo. Nowadays, he’s dropping more dope music as a solo artist and as part of The Movement Collective (Hollywood Holt, Million Dollar Mano, Low B, Mic Terror) etc and is part of the new Chicago renaissance that’s been killing everything lately… yeah, even though we’re from NYC, we’re not afraid to give props where it’s due and the Chi is crushing music right now…Kanye, The Cool Kids, Common…do I have to keep going?
Rather than me continue to talk about Shala, I like to let people discover stuff on their own…give them an experience…so with that said, go check out more about Shala at myspace.com/shalaesquire.
