We’re living in very strange times, a global pandemic has ravaged the world and the effects have been devastating. This song is a reflection of having spent 6 months in lockdown and starting to feel the walls closing in. Whilst the beat is lively and fun, the lyrics are real and heartfelt. The overall tone of the song is one of hope and looking forward to getting back to the Shottaz’ element, which is bringing good vibes inna Dancehall.

The song is produced by German powerhouse producer Paul Hauss.. This summer dancehall vibe will get you moving whilst keeping mind to the effects of the Covid pandemic.

Shottaz – Beef

Check out our latest tune Beef. Released 18th September 2020

Beef is a contemplative song about friendships gone sour, performed by Melbourne’s frontline Dancehall crew Shottaz. Everyone has experienced this at some point in their life, having a close friend switch up on them and becoming a foe overnight. The Shottaz explore this aspect of life by taking on a first person POV and questioning someone they cared about why their friendship deteriorated. Max Shotta states “We’ve all had that situation in life whereby a friendship turns sour, and you’re left scratching your head as to what really caused the fall out”. In Beef, the Shottaz are basically questioning that person why the relationship went south, asking what the beef is.
