Philly Emcee Has A New Smash Hit For “Whoever Want It”
PHILADELPHIA, PA – One of Philly’s hottest rap stars is back, and this time he’s ready to party. His name is Shortyo, he’s big, he’s white, and he’s taking over. His new hit single Whoever Want It has been making a huge buzz on ReverbNation and regional FM radio. The success of the single comes as no surprise to hip hop fans, his past releases have earned him a place in the indie rap scene and he was dubbed by his fans as “The King of the Kounty”.
This single will be one of many hits on his upcoming album “Addicted”. When asked for his thoughts on the excitement from Whoever Want It, Shortyo had this to say, “This single means a lot to me. It’s different than what my fans are used to but I’m glad they’re feelin it. I’m not in music for the money, I do it because I love it”.
Shortyo is currently gearing up for a new video and album release. To learn more about Shortyo visit www.shortyo.com
Shortyo fell in love with hip hop at an early age, listening to music from NWA, Eazy-e, and Ice- T, which was odd since Shortyo was from Pennsylvania where the only thing considered “hip hop” was Grandmaster Flash, KRS 1, and the rest of the East Coast scene. Shortyo started his 1st rap group with 2 friends in grade school when he was only 9 or 10 years old. He was even nominated “Most Destined For Rap Stardom” by his Eighth grade teacher. Throughout high school Shortyo was writing songs and performing at local venues to satisfy his crave for music. In 2004 Shortyo entered a rap battle competition called “The Cypher” on 100.3 The Beat (Radio-One) in Philadelphia and destroyed his opponents with his originality and catchy wordplay for 10 consecutive weeks.
