The FADER premieres ShaqIsDope’s homage track, “King Push”

In February, The FADER premiered “King Push” for Toronto-native rapper ShaqIsDope.

In an email to Lakin Starling, Shaq stated he is “a big fan of Pusha T.” In the summertime, the two were booked to play the same festival, but [the promoters] canceled. “I wanted to pay homage to him through a record.”

That night, Pusha T followed ShaqIsDope on Instagram. Stream the track on the premiere site.
