A few months after the release of his breakout project Black Frames, ShaqIsDope is preparing the release of his new EP. The Toronto wordsmith stayed relatively quiet before releasing “Wake Up” and announcing his new self-title project, ShaqIsDope. After premiering his new single “For The Streets” on VICE’s Beats1 show, you can now stream the song in full. “For The Streets,” a reminiscent track about a day in the life of characters from his neighborhood over a horn-laced production, courtesy of Jay 808. Listen to “For The Streets” below.

More dopeness from the Red Bull Music Academy. KAYTRA!!!
Montréal’s own production star and 2016 Polaris Prize winner Kaytranada joined Anupa Mistry on the lecture couch for a wide-ranging conversation on his musical upbringing and synthesis of diverse tastes into a sound that’s entirely his own. This lecture coincided with the debut of a new episode of The Junction, an animated tale of Kaytranada and 2016 Academy participant River Tiber’s creative encounters.
The Red Bull Music Academy is a global music institution committed to fostering creativity in music. We celebrate music, its culture, and the transformative minds behind it. Begun in 1998, the Academy has taken the core principles that underlie its annual workshop for selected participants and applied this curatorial approach to events, lectures, and city-wide festivals throughout the year.
