Back in October of 2009, Sha Stimuli released what would quickly become my favorite album of the year in My Soul to Keep. While the album has received great praise, it’s still evident that there are far too many folks sleeping. So the Brooklyn native linked up with the dopehouse to present the Overtime mixtape. With DJ Slimm on the mix, Sha puts in extra work over some of the albums most noted tracks.

    password? is this the same beats w diff lyrics? i don’t understand

  • “password? is this the same beats w diff lyrics? i don’t understand”

    pass has been removed. sorry about that. and yes.. the “overtime” tracks are the same beats that were used on the album but totally different lyrics. like he’s doing “overtime” on the instrumental.

  • Would’ve loved it if “Good Day” would’ve got a second run. But still, it’s all good.

  • cspen

  • raj

    people stop sleeping and listen this is hip hop at its purest

  • dude has been grinding for years!!! i remember he was unsigned Hype in like 2001!!! im happy to see that he is still at it.

  • whodat?

    wtf is this woody the woodpecker shit

  • was this cover art at all inspired by Nick F’s mixtape which has yet to drop? Hmmm?

  • Gordon B.

    I admit I’m still sleeping on this guy but I’ll take you up on that and check out some of his work, let’s hope it doesn’t put me into a coma.

  • About 4, 5 of the songs are entirely new. Of course one would only know the difference if they got the LP

  • Dfrye

    YES. Sha kills it, My Soul To Keep was album of the year. Finally this dropped.

  • VSOP

    more blunt music from sha


  • RichyRico
  • Truth


  • zipdo

    The most underrated MC in the game. 12 crazy mixtapes of original material in a year, a great official debut and countless guest spots where he tore the spot down, and some people are still sleeping. Sha is incredibly dope.

  • Mr. Incredible

    Why is this dude so slept on? What does it take for people to wake up?!

  • AugustaGA Jedi

    i coma’d on this guy…i first heard him on that N word joint from the boondocks and i started doing my research on ol boy. I just peeped “Hang On” on youtube and needless to say i begin to DL the mixtape…good look shake

  • Truth


  • leutrim rexhaj

    like 9 of these have already leaked

  • ShakeMyDick

    Guy is trash. Really boring music. They must be getting paid or friends with this guy.

  • OnlyDrakeFanOn2dopeb

    Nice, i’ll take a listen.

  • OnlyDrakeFanOn2dopeboyz

    Nice, I’ll take a listen

  • I like Sha. I loved his album for a minute. But I got bored of it relatively quick. I could still listen to a few of the tracks on the regular, but I just can’t do it most of the time.

    Skyzoo & Fashawn easily had the top 2 albums of 2009

  • Lyricsareeverything

    this guy is good i like his flow and his lyrics actually mean something other than cars money and hoes hmmmm who says that alot DRAKE but not hatin on drake but sha is being original like drake should be going back to his old self because if so far gone was an album it would outsale MJ’s greatest album in one month.

  • @the last guy…
    Why are u even talking about Drake? Man crush, no?

    …but, yeah, Sha Stimuli one of the only newer NY cats that kinda stand out a little bit. He’s dope. Original concept on the tape, too.

    Check out my stuff, if ya want…
    …let me know what ‘cha think.

  • dope, downloaded, will listen to soon…

  • dan

    shits dope sha saves lives

  • chronwell

    @dan He does make life saving songs.His shit is so authentic and blue collar which is why its not as exciting as OJ da Ju man, for example. Like on my favorit joint from Soul.. ,Do it 4 the Doe. He tells the truth about why ppl go to work and sacrifice their dignity.

  • Chambermusik supports Sha Stimuli, you should all do the same http://chambermusik.com/wordpress/?p=840

  • word

    as usual sha came with some amazing music, heartfelt, real, relatable, clever, all of that.

    but dj slimm.. i dont like the mixing/scratches/extras at all. i dont even mind the two dope boyz drops but shas music is just not suppose to have a fucking fire alarm behind it like dj khaled or some shit. it really fucks with me vibing with the songs.

  • cbanks13

    damn this tape is crazy yo

  • Dre

    I was sleeping on him, then i listene to him and i got a very rude awakening!!!! this tape is great

  • t.a.morales

    Just read on Sha’s twitter that if requested, he will drop the tape without the DJ. Hit em up.

  • Jeff

    Why is woodywood pecker sound effects added to every song? i dont get it.

  • Warpath

    His album is fire. Clearly slept on hard.
