    Hey guys,

    Hope you had a good holiday/Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukah. Here's a recent interview I did with up-and-coming Toronto rapper ShaqisDope that touches on relationships, mental health, and his latest project called Dark Days Ahead.

    It’s been covered in other outlets. His given name is Shaquille and he’s a fan of Shaquille O’Neil.

    I also make it a habit not to ask artists how they got their name in interviews anymore. It’s never a compelling answer.

    Actually fair. Yeah thinkin bout it I imagine most answers would be "me and my mates were doing drugs and drinking and thought it up."
