“What You Here Fo”, the daring and groundbreaking new album from Sho Underscore, is the opposite of the redundant sound that you often get bombarded with on the radio nowadays. The project establishes a genre he created called “Southern Eclectic” which is describedas a mixture of Hip Hop, Blues, Gospel, Country, Classical, and Rock & Roll. From the very first second of pressing play it becomes see through clear that Sho’s aim is to stand out and not fit in, and he succeeds in an almost effortless fashion.
If you’re looking for the tales of gold teeth, candy painted “Slabs”, and big cups of lean that we’ve grown accustomed to hearing from particular Texas artists, this is not and will not be your cup of tea. Filled with futuristic, unique and daring production this body of work is just that..A body of work. Whether dropping conscious gems, uplifting sisters or calling out the industry for its carbon copy styling, each song aims to break the monotony of what seems to be the current climate of hip hop. Sho Underscore will never be accused of trying to imitate somebody else’s sound and has a delivery that can’t be described due to the unorthodox styling and delivery. Sometimes being a straight rhyme spitter, and at other times a melodic rhythm riding songster, it’s apparent that he obeys the command of the beat when penning his creations. “What You Here Fo” isn’t the album you’ll find yourself putting on when you want to turn up and just party without thinking, this is grown rap, music made to give you something that you can relate to or feel and that is the evident sole purpose of this offering. Job well done.
