After much anticipation, Florida’s own Shahid drops his debut set of visuals for his freestyle, “Sarasota Sound.” In this clip, the rapper shows off his beautiful city while he drops some heavy bars over a Joey Bada$$ instrumental. In his own words:
The point of the song is to represent Sarasota, a place that doesn’t get much recognition. It has a true sense of “putting your city on the map” I figured, why try to fit in with what everyone else is doing? I’d rather showcase the beautiful city I live in and what we do. Take a look into my world.
Get familiar with Shahid and watch the new visual above.
