Earlier this month, HotBoy Shaq inked a new deal with Charlotte-based music label Social Currency Enterprises.
The rising rapper is credited for creating the viral hit single “We Outside,” supported by a Boosie Badazz-assisted remix. Most recently, Shaq dropped off the official music video for the mentioned release. Directed by FoolWithTheCamera, the visual encapsulates that lifestyle feel the song boasts on record.
Sonically, the cantankerous rapper draws inspiration from the streets, serving as a voice for the trenches. A Charlotte native, HotBoy Shaq is no rookie to the limelight: he has been on North Carolina’s radar for quite some time now as a breakout artist.
With 2020 serving as a standout year for the budding talent, signing with Social Currency signified the start of something new for Shaq’s mushrooming career.
Daud “King” Carter (CEO, Social Currency Enterprises) has a keen interest in developing talent, molding MC’s into superstars. With his industry level experience and Shaq’s infectious grind, the future’s looking bright for SCE’s latest signee.
HotBoy Shaq has been on a hot streak this year, no pun intended. Since his inception in rap, he has easily become a formidable force within music. With a headlining performance at the OutDaMud showcase in Columbia, South Carolina this past weekend, Shaq’s work ethic is what will bring about his impending success.
