95Labs presents Shottie’s sophomore album The Blackest Rose. The ten track album is a journey through Shottie’s thoughts and perception of his life and the world. Shottie is a recording artist, MC, writer, and director that is currently residing in New York City. I wanted to show you guys which songs were my favorite from The Blackest Rose, it’s really a dope project and it’s definitely worth the listen.
[x1] Black Roses – Shottie mentions scenarios of how beautiful one thing can be then all of a sudden it can turn ugly like a black rose. Regarding a relationship that was “supposedly” meant to be.. but ending in a tragedy. Wants his mother’s approval, but doubts he’ll ever get it.
[x3] Sayonara You (featuring Salazar) – Love the production on this track by TeV95. The chemistry with Shottie and TeV95 really shows off both they’re talents. From sick production to amazing lyricism. It showcases through out the entire album The Blackest Rose. SAYONARA YOU also features Miami recording artist, Salazar.
[x4] Bag of Shrooms – I find this track to be fun for the fact Shottie’s delivery is non-stop and consistent. His wordplay is intense. The track also gives off a mean demeanor. You don’t want to be messing with Shottie.
[x6] Illegally Medicated – “Can I Get A Light? I’m Jus Trying To Live My Life” If you medicate yourself with Maryjane, you can definitely relate to this track. You just wanna live your life and light one up. With the ever day stresses of life and all you want to do is unwind. Love how the song was delivered and the production is nuts!
[x7] Dream (featuring Rue Brown) – “The Homie Said I’m Gonna Be A Star, Same Day My Girl Said I Ain’t Shit” Shottie’s not sure from reality to a dream. Is his goals to high to be reached? Or will he be able to accomplish the impossible. I love the female addition to the album. With Rue Brown’s sultry voice really gives life to the track.
[x9] In The Presence – This track has to be my favorite from Shottie on The Blackest Rose. He’s story-telling is really dope on this one. So descriptive, that leads you’re imagination to become vivid. From conversations he had with his mother or things he see’s in the sky. I thought it was pretty dope that they sampled Paul Hellyer (Canadians Ex-Defence Minister) speech regarding UFO’s and aliens being real.
This concludes my album review on Shottie’s The Blackest Rose. It was a great music experience and I hope many more others take a listen. The Blackest Rose is available on Bandcamp with NAME YOUR PRICE on download or you can pay $8 for an exclusive limited edition physical copy of the project.
The Blackest Rose (Album Release Party) will be held September 25th at Sullivan Hall and will also feature art, visual projections, and live performances by Shottie, Scienze + The Ellavators, and Uptown Vernacular. Click Image Below For Tickets:

Miami’s own D.U.Ivan is back with his latest EP, Thanks. This six song project has three songs produced by D.U.Ivan along with production from Miami Beat Wave, Rusko and Shottie. The first song “Ha!” is a dope freestyle where he just styles over the Shottie produced track with such ease. The second song is “Thanks!”, the title track, which Ivan produced himself. He thanks everything from potent marijuana to his haters on this song. The song “You Know”, produced by Miami Beat Wave, is a turnt up song that you party to yet it’s still lyrical. “Yoga Stretch” is a funny twist on a song about sex, the chorus is pure genius and the indian style chanting on the beat is classic.
The fifth song “Something Different”, produced by Rusko, was truly my favorite song of the EP because it’s a song about actually being different unlike the 2 Chainz song “I’m Different”. The final song of the project “Get A Clue” is a song about him being the man and making sure everyone knows it. Overall this is a solid project that I enjoyed listening to and know I can play in the car on several occasions. Give it a listen and if you choose to download it, leave him a tip for his hardwork.
Check out the latest freestyle coming from D.U.Ivan titled HA! The track is definitely out there! With a dope ass beat coming from Shottie. D.U.Ivan is having fun with his witty lyrics and stand out tone. You gotta play this track a couple of times, in order to catch everything D.U.Ivan has to say.
HA! Can be found on D.U.Ivan’s solo debut Thanks EP which is set to be released on 01/31/2013. He doesn’t stop there, less than 2 months later he’s releasing his debut album I Do What I Want! (03/01/13). Mark your calendars, these are going to be some dope downloads.
Shottie’s recent music video release ALLIGATOR ALLEY, has answered so many questions that were left unanswered in his last video HORROR MOVIE. We find out what lead Shottie & Candice to clean up their bloody mess.
But now I still have more questions? The women that Candice killed… Who is she? Did she screw them over? Did she steal all their money? Was that the only resort was to kill her? Shottie you’re killing me here! With your sick verses and visions!
Directed by Shottie & TeV95
Starring Shottie and Candice Freshko
Check out the latest music video from Shottie SODA POPINSKI. Shottie is always involved in some crazy scenarios in his music video. This time Shottie was kidnapped by two badass chicks. Shottie spits his verse on a chair while the girls start taking all his possessions. Removing his chains, rings, and taunt him since they’re armed with a knife & a gun. SODA POPINSKI was mixed, mastered, and produced by TeV95.

Smells Like Holy Spirit a 6 track EP by Shottie & TeV95 is now available: HERE
Check out the latest visuals from Shottie HORROR MOVIE off of his project Smells Like Holy Spirit. I love this music video, because it doesn’t seem like one. It feels more like a mini Horror Movie. It just drives me crazy cause we don’t know what lead Shottie and Candice to change outfits in the bathroom, and where they’re going after. The video is only 2:16 minutes long! Wish it was longer or TeV95 can make a real movie out of this, I’m just saying. It wouldn’t be a bad idea though.
