New Music: ShaoDow (@ShaoDowMusic) — Morning After Morning ft. Abiade (@ABIADEMUSIC)


Morn­ing After Morn­ing, the new­est single from ShaoDow fea­tur­ing long time friend and col­lab­or­at­or Abi­ade is a lyr­ic­al skill les­son. With bars, flows and quot­ables the two MCs grabbed a banger and went HAM just because they can.

The not quite Hip Hop, not quite Grime pro­duc­tion comes from sub­woof­er shak­ing vet­er­an Phase 2 whilst back up is provided in the form of a def­in­itely Grime remix from J‑Fresh that is sure to be a reli­able weapon in any urb­an selector’s arsen­al. “I’m a lyr­i­cist first, always have been, always will be. Mak­ing full on songs is fun, but some­times I just want to go in and remind a dude that Shao can spit. I’ve known Abs since col­lege days, we were mess­ing about, rap­ping and try­ing to avoid a bor­ing life back then, I guess in some ways we still are. This track is really just two good friends just doing what we love and what we’re dope at.” Morn­ing After Morn­ing ft. Abi­ade is taken from ShaoDow’s 3rd album シャウ道 。The Way Of Shao with fea­tures from Papoose, Krizz Kaliko (Strange Music), McLean, Dot Rot­ten, Gen­es­is Eli­jah, Dur­rty Goodz and Sero­cee. The single will be released on Spo­ti­fy, Apple Music, ShaoDow’s own web­site and all good down­load sites on (decide on release date). The offi­cial music video, a high-energy fusion of mar­tial arts and move­ment will première on ShaoDow’s Vevo chan­nel on (decide on date).
