Shala. emerges from behind the scene of the emerging and innovative Chicago art and music movement to deliver an amazing 9-track collection of free music downloads. His new album preview is a refreshing expression of where hip hop is finally headed: “Songs to Rap Along To” is a clever, honest and innovative prelude to his debut release: “…And Then Along Came Shala.”
Shala’s “Songs to Rap Along To” can be found for free download at weareshala.com. Weareshala.com is an online motion painting by Shala. himself. The collection features collaborations with Ninjasonik, Hollywood Holt, Mic Terror, and Sebastian of Ed Banger.
“I love what Chicago is doing, and this Shala. song “Molly Wop” is definitely what music is missing right now, so I’m playing it" -Terry Urban of TPPS (Shade45 Radio/XM Sirius Satellite Radio)
“ . . . Shala. may be leading the most important movement on Chicago's hip-hop scene. . . These artists exist outside the stereotype of the hip-hop artist, yet they retain the edge and authenticity they need to be taken seriously and the business acumen needed to succeed in a tough industry.” -Chicago Sun-Times
