The rapper and songwriter known as Shot Dinero has released his latest LP record, “Confessions of a Hustla.” The full-length album consists of 14 original Shot Dinero tracks for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes. Like other popular releases from Shot Dinero, it has been proudly published on the Browns Town Music LLC independent record label without the influence of the corporate music industry. Aggressive and explosive, packed with booming bass, old-school beats and cutting-edge instrumentation alike, “Confessions of a Hustla” is the latest reason music fans have to pay attention to this veteran hip-hop artist and top-notch hip-hop label.
Shot Dinero cites as personal hip-hop influences the Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur, Bob Marley, Jay Z, and 50 Cent. His own sound is largely based on the style of writing and delivery which cropped up as a result of the 1990s golden era of rap music, but also on the rap tradition which developed in his hometown of Philadelphia and in his longtime base of operations, Brooklyn, NYC.
Asked to comment on the overall theme of his new LP, Shot Dinero writes that “Confessions of a Hustla” is about “Growing up in the struggle living in Philly, moving to Brooklyn, NY. [It’s about] hustling to maintain myself. The family. Being in the drug game and now the music game…”
Shot Dinero (also called El Presidente or simply ‘Dinero’) found himself enthralled by beats before leaving North Philadelphia for Brooklyn. His music is populated with non-fiction tales of his own gritty experiences in the drug trade of the East Coast. As he grew older, music and poetry became his focal points, and he began to explore other sounds. Himself being of Dominican descent, Shot Dinero found deep passions for hip hop, R ‘n’ B, reggae and also reggaeton.
Brown Town Music LLC describes him as having “an uncanny lyrical talent that is effortless and appeals to audiences worldwide. His versatility commands the attention of everyone within earshot.”
That music by Shot Dinero is true to life is also clear.
“Dinero’s music gives you a flavor for his upbringing from being deeply involved in the hustle of the streets,” Browns Town goes on to state. “Through Dinero’s music, you really begin to understand what it means to have to hustle hard to survive in life.”
Fans of such artists as Biggie Smalls, Jay Z, Mobb Deep, Nas, Jadakiss, Tego Calderon and the like are certain to be enthusiastic about this fresh, flagship release from Shot Dinero.
Dinero has been signed to Browns Town Music LLC since 2011, under which umbrella other such heavy-hitting artists as MAJ, George Pettus, Tje Austin and many more have found a home.
“Confessions of a Hustla” by Shot Dinero is available online worldwide beginning 18 July 2015. Rap fans should get in early.
