Shotta Sho is an artist with no fear to speak his mind, determined to go after his dreams and ready to take on the world. He's been called Sho (which is short for his first name) by his friends and family from a young age. With his distinctive cultural sound and catchy lyrics, he's slowly starting to get people's attention. Born and raised in Brooklyn, he moved to Barbados in 2000, where despite getting in trouble in and out of school, he discovered his passion for writing and creating music. Shotta Sho's music is a fusion of styles grounded in hip hop, reggae and soca flavours, as evident by his newest single “Day 1”. This song has hype written all over it. It's the type of song you crank up to eleven in your car, chilling with your friends in a parking lot and rolling blunts by the dozen. It's got a trap influenced beat and poetic flow that you can turn on whether you want to relax or whether you want to liven up a party and get people twerking. You can tell Shotta Sho has such love for the people who helped him get where he is now and if we're lucky, this will only be the beginning for him.
