Listen to: What’s Your Hood Like?’

Release Date: 26th April 2019

What’s Your Hood Like? is the latest single to be released from Lon­don based Hip Hop artist, Shiv­aa. The track became avail­able to listen on all major digit­al plat­forms from the 26th April 2019.

Inspired by his homet­own, Shiv­aa wrote What’s Your Hood Like? to rep­res­ent his roots and express the cir­cum­stances that people from his area are faced with. Using clev­er lyr­ics and free­style beats, Shiv­aa has con­struc­ted an urb­an single with heaps of depth and unpar­alleled rhythm.

Shiv­aa has been in the music busi­ness for over a dec­ade mean­ing that he has a roster of per­form­ance exper­i­ence, mainly in and around Liv­er­pool and Lon­don. His cap­tiv­at­ing rap style, inspired by Trav­is Scott and Tory Lanes, has garnered the sup­port of over 200k view­ers online and a strong social media fol­low­ing to match.

Shiv­aa works mainly on solo pro­jects but enlis­ted the help of col­lect­ive ‘NWE’ for this release. This latest track was recor­ded in house via Knight­ime Record­ings.

Over 300 hard cop­ies of his pre­vi­ous mix­tape sold simply out of the boot of his car. Since then, he has proudly occu­pied the sup­port slot for Sam­ondi on a Nation­al Brit­ish, Afric­an Fusion Tour and he even graced the Lon­don 2012 olympic stage with Merki Waters and Molonez.

The likes of BBC 1Xtra and BBC Radio Mer­sey­side have already shown their sup­port for Shiv­aa,  demon­strat­ing his huge poten­tial to break the UK urb­an scene.

To accom­pany the release of What’s Your Hood Like?, Shiv­aa will be drop­ping the accom­pa­ny­ing visu­al, dir­ec­ted by cre­at­ive tal­ent Klash, on the 22nd April.

What’s Your Hood Like? will is avail­able now on all major digit­al plat­forms!
