After a year-long stretch of monthly mixtapes in 2012, Sha Stimuli took a break from the booth to handle some real life situations — becoming a father for the first time being at the top of the list. Four years later, the talented lyricist dusted off the pen and resurfaced with a pair of powerful records: “Sticks and Stones,” and “New Jordans/A Poem For Mike,” produced by Just Blaze and Needlz.
Now, with Atlanta-based 10 Minutes Late Records in his corner, the Brooklyn-bred emcee is finally ready to make an official comeback.
More than a new record, Sha has a message with his latest release. Produced by Redd Lettaz, “Together” (or “To Get Her”) tackles racism head on with the precise lyricism and plenty of food for thought.
“Without Her, life is a struggle, in order to get Her, I wonder if we need to truly come together,” Sha says. “Or is it better for ethnicities, sexualities, and nationalities to continue to celebrate their pride and embark on separate paths? When love conquers all, anything can be accomplished. The police brutality, racial profiling, and targeted violence can be silenced if we see all humans as not just equals, but as ourselves.”

As a bonus, Sha also kicked some a cappella bars for the good folks Ambrosia For Heads back in March.
