An effective coach communicates well, exuding credibility and respect among his players. That is exactly what Nebraska-native artist OriJinal Shotta is aiming to be for his fellow street hustlers. Having overcome much adversity, enduring the street life, riddled with drugs and violence, the up and coming artist uses music as a vehicle to reach out to those who are listening. He states, “I am a trap coach teaching others what it takes to live a better life. I come from a city that nobody really knows of and it’s a big deal for me to make it out of the city and represent those who live there. I’m a hustler at heart so I do whatever it will take to get me to the next level.” 

OriJinal Shotta was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska. Not traditionally known for its hip hop presence, OriJinal Shotta is determined to put his hometown on the map and bring exposure to the hiphop/trap community in Omaha. “My city is underrated. I call it the city of Atlantis because nobody knows it really exists the way it does. We have lots going on especially with the BLM movement that the country doesn’t even know of. I’m just here to be the voice of my city and prove to my people that you can make it out but you’ve got to hustle.” His voice will certainly be transformative in a genre that has been traditionally dominated by Southern and West Coast artists.    

When asked about the origin of his name, he explains a “Shotta” as being a gangsta and “Original” meaning originator. The “J” in OriJinal stands for the street he’s from, Jaynes Street. “I represent the J so I change the G to a capital J.” The “J” also seems to foreshadow the artist who influences OriJinal’s music, Young Jeezy, deemed as one of the trailblazers for trap music and ghetto gospel. “My sound is unique but similar to 2005 Jeezy when the motto was to get out and get to the money.” Like Jeezy and other trap artists, OriJinal Shotta relies heavily on the storyline and the narrative he presents to be most impactful to his listeners.

OriJinal Shotta started his official music career this past November and has already mapped out his plans for the future with a preference to simply travel and stack his bread. “I’m not trying to be too loud. I prefer to be low key. I’d like to keep an audience that understands me, what I’ve been through and where I come from. I am just trying to take the road less traveled by the people where I am from.” 
While it has only been little time he has been in the music game he has already been making more moves than many other new artist. One of his latest visuals he released is featuring Detroits famed Icewear Vezzo. The track is tiles “Nebraska” which represents where Shotta is from. The visual has already done thousands of views and the numbers are continuing to grow. 

While remaining humble, OriJinal Shotta’s playbook and upcoming EP is anything but mediocre. The artist is releasing his latest EP “I Got Plays” on December 31st 2021 with 8 videos already released as a preview to the project. The release date is special, marking the 10th anniversary of his younger brother’s passing.
