TRACK REVIEW: Shakk – Living Proof | NARC. | Reliably Informed | Music and Creative Arts News for Newcastle and the North East

Narc. Magazine Online

Reliably informed

Taking its hook from, seemingly, the sounds of a mining brass band, there’s something deeply North Eastern about the new one from Middlesbrough rapper Shakk.

Supplemented nicely by a well worked out music video, Living Proof digs into the Rocky narrative; following a central character from being down and out before raising to personal glory. Nicely rapped over, Living Proof uses a fairly downtempo set of minimal beats to create enough space for Shakk to talk about the importance of finishing personal challenges and pushing yourself towards your goal. Strong and with an important message, Living Proof bangs hard. Start with the video, as it helps tell the full story.
