“Shao Sosa's second full length solo album is a well put together project....”
“The thing that stays evident through the album is the tenacity Shao still holds in being able to bring you, the listener, into his world which is an ode to artists of old. An album that would have been welcomed earlier, it is still a welcome addition to fans that live in a world where reality lives instead of false pretenses. As with the saying “better late than never”.”
“After a 10 year hiatus Eastern Washington hip-hop lyricist Shao Sosa is back with a full length solo album. The two new singles, What Time It Was and Undeniable show strong growth as a musical talent from the Baby Dragons and King Cobras album. This new single (and album) are thumpers with excellent lyrical content and it'll be staying in my rotation for a long time to come.”
“With a matured delivery and his content widened Shao shows his ability to mix punch-lines with storytelling while still keeping his sound relevant to today’s fans.”
"The Gateway Drug" shows Shao Sosa has a lot of promise....
“It has been over ten long years since Shaolin now known as Shao Sosa dropped his first solo album but his latest effort “The Gateway Drug” shows he hasn’t missed a step.”
