Combining boom bap drums with Middle Eastern melodies, Israeli-Canadian (Montreal) rapper SHI 360 has a new release called “No Way” featured on the album ‘Elevate’.
SHI 360 has released albums in Hebrew and has produced countless other projects. “No Way” has a steady beat and a smooth mood. The Middle Eastern influences are subtle, but important to this unique sound.
After moving to Israel and releasing Israeli hip-hop music, SHI 360 hosted the country’s top hip-hop radio show. All of this inspiration and action took place while he was fighting a heart condition that resulted in four surgeries. With a social justice focus, SHI 360 has been labeled a political rapper, which may be true, but to only see the social or political leanings could take away from the musicianship and talent of the artist.
