Lil Wayne contributes some rhymes, bouncing off of Shifta’s vocals to give extra depth as electro-dub effects wind around him. This music is as fresh as anything you’ll hear right now.
Feeling Nice takes the Miami hiphop music sound and brings it to a dub vibe, borrowing production notes from the likes of DJ Khaled and Rick Ross, but fusing it with a deep down ganja vibe. Shifta keeps the 420 flowing on Ganja Shop, a grooving little tune that sticks in the head about a shop where high-grade is all they got. He even brings in a bit of a middle eastern vibe, although the track goes on a bit long.
For the all-around standout in Shifta’s recent tunes, look to Holiday. The mix of Caribbean vibes, modern hip-hop, and outta-this-world beats come together for a song that begs for feet to stomp and heads to bob. With huge charisma, great musicianship, and a seriously hot new sound, Shifta is poised to bring big things to the Miami dance scene.
