The latest artist catching our ear here in the Highsnobiety office is husky-voiced rapper Shake, a member of rising New Jersey hip-hop collective, 070.
Shake, with her tomboy looks, IDGAF attitude and Justin Bieber-meets-Post Malone sonic appeal, is the latest to be featured in the lookbook for KITH's third installment of its “Year V” Spring I collection.
While Shake and her 070 counterparts - PHI, J Sebastian and Ether - continue to buzz about their local Jersey hip-hop scene, the group is slowly starting to creep around territory outside of the tri-state area - and with good reason. The production in many of Shake's tracks boast a (familiar-sounding) hazy, snare-happy trap beat, but the artist's genre-warped, baritone vocal spits and gritty realness land her in a category of her own.
Trust and believe Shake will be stirring up the blogosphere in no time, but don't forget that you heard it here first. Listen to "Make It There" below and peep more of her tracks here.
