Before the vocals kick in with Shivaa’s latest single “Whats Your Hood Like?” you know that it’s not going to be a Hip Hop mix which skirts around the issues of superficiality or verses about self-grandiosity.
Instead, Shivaa’s single invites you to find a resonance in the all too relatable introspective offered through the poignantly penned, candid lyrics. The London based songwriter and artist already has plenty of commandingly raw singles behind him, yet Whats Your Hood Like? is proof that Shivaa in no way belongs on the underground.
The production of the intricate beats which serve as the perfect platform to Shivaa’s vocals makes Whats Your Hood Like? a radio ready single which is more than worthy of a space on the contemporary airwaves.
