In 2022, after years of consistently championing the releases of others, the legendary Shortee Blitz is now turning his attention and focus towards his own music.
The ‘…1st Step’ EP (which will drop on May 27th) showcases Shortee’s impressive production prowess over four well-crafted tracks featuring a diverse selection of artists, including Wavy Boy Smith, Blak Twang, Joell Ortiz and Terri Walker.
‘Steel Sharpens Steel’, the first single to be lifted from the EP, will be unleashed on March 4th and features UK heavyweights Sus Bully and MysDiggi trading boisterous bars over punchy drums, accompanied by laser-precise cuts and scratches.
“On ‘Steel Sharpens Steel’ as in all the songs on the project, I tried to match styles and personalities of artists that might not have worked together before, but their skill sets compliment each other. I feel I got a really good result to that approach.” – Shortee Blitz
The enthusiasm and integrity that Shortee has maintained during his career can clearly be heard flowing throughout the “…1st Step” project.
This isn’t a release that was inspired by popular trends and a hollow desire to simply appeal to the masses. Instead, “…1st Step” proudly represents credibility and creativity.
This is Hip-Hop at its finest.
Run for cover – the Blitz is about to begin!
