Listen to Imper­fect Art(IST)


Imper­fect Art(IST) is the latest album to come from one of Lon­dons rising urb­an tal­ents, Show­time Shegz. The album will drop to all major digit­al plat­forms on the 5th April 2019.

Imper­fect Art(IST) com­piles a huge 19 tracks, each of which embody a dif­fer­ent part of Show­time Shegz. The track-list includes a truly eclect­ic mix as it show­cases the quirky raps of ‘Cat­fish’ and ‘Wham Wham’ paired with his single ‘God Flexn’ and end­ing with the longer, exposed vocal of ‘Dear Group Chat’. Com­bin­ing vibrant beats with his unique rap style, this album man­ages to rep­res­ent Lon­dons’ urb­an scene whilst includ­ing tracks that explore sounds from far bey­ond, includ­ing his Nigeri­an roots.

Show­time Shegz hails ori­gin­ally from Lagos, Niger­ia but spent most of his life grow­ing up in South East Lon­don. Through­out his child­hood he was drawn to music, wheth­er that be tap­ping beats into a steel drum or free­styl­ing on the bus home.

Since then, Show­time Shegz has per­fec­ted his sound into a unique blend between Hip Hop and Exper­i­ment­al Rhythm and Blues. Not bound by the bar­ri­ers of genre, Show­time Shegz writes lyr­ics spon­tan­eously, with no forced con­struc­tion. Instead, he chan­nels all his energy, both pos­it­ive and neg­at­ive, into song­writ­ing in order to push out his deep­est, most retable mater­i­al.

Des­pite his clear ori­gin­al­ity, Show­time Shegz has been heav­ily inspired by a range of artists includ­ing the likes of Big­gie, Phar­rell Wil­li­ams, Kanye West, Calv­in Har­ris and Ella Fitzger­ald. With the release of this album, he hopes to reach big­ger audi­ences than ever before.

Imper­fect Art(IST) Is out now on all major digit­al plat­forms.
