Shogun V: “APOCALYPSE” New Album

Shogun V puts out his debut album “APOCALYPSE”!

The Bay Area native put out the best-executed debut album we’ve heard in a while. Starting off with a spooky introduction then making a full statement on what he’s here to do in the first track “SHOGUN VS THE WORLD”.

Shogun V had been working on this album for some time. He shared with us the journey of making the album as well as its inspiration.

“This tape is a collection of work I’ve acquired over the span of the ‘apocalypse’ I was homeless in 2020 writing a few of these in my car, going to other peoples houses to get some recordings in. Plotting on releasing everything full force when the time was right.”

I personally commend his hard work and effort. Using his music to keep his head up. As a person of homeless myself, I can understand the full meaning behind and sentiment behind the album.

He continued to share more on the inspiration behind it.

“The events leading up to COVID-19, the world shutting down, Tha Black Lives Matter movement, riots, and the world in a sense, going to hell, felt like the Apocalypse. And I was living in it. This project is an experience of what I did during the end of the world.”

As a proud Bay Area boy, especially from Daily City, Shogun V really put a lot of his pride for his hometown in the album.

The Bay Area has a very unique sound when it comes to music and Shogun uses that sound and mixes it with his own unique style.

The “APOCALYPSE” album is a very well-executed and versatile album, With something for another. From old-school hip-hop to Alternative and Classic west coast vibes.

Overall, Shogun V did a great job and his residence really paid off.
