Middlesbrough-based rapper Shakk returns with his forthcoming single Loose Ends, which drops on 19th March, and comes from having used a challenging year as the inspiration for some of his best work yet.

The forthcoming single maintains the same sort of intensity, flow and lyricism as last year’s single Toxic Rick, while keeping the ideas and subject matter completely fresh. The beat was produced by Versus, and there are ambitious plans in the works for visuals to accompany the track as soon as COVID restrictions allow.

Hip-hop and grime are at their absolute best when they’re sincere, and Shakk has always used his own lived experience as the basis for his lyrics. He’s drawn on an introspective period spent in lockdown and used the experience to become the best rapper he can be. “Even though 2020 was a strong year for me as an artist you could say that I still had a chip on my shoulder entering 2021 with a feeling of something to prove and I believe this track reflects that attitude accurately.” He says of the song. He’s also spoken of his ambition to take his musical projects to the biggest stages, and is definitely one to keep an eye on as live events begin to pick back up.
