Shame Gang Embraces New Beginnings In ‘Get It Started’ Single And Music Video


Since the birth of his lauded sophomore album No Safe Haven in 2021, Shame Gang has caught the attention of Jay-Z‘s nephew, opened for Griselda’s Benny The Butcher and Rap legend KRS-One, and toured with Little Brother‘s Rapper Big Pooh. Roughly two years later, the rising North Carolina-based emcee formerly known as simply Shame preps for a second boost of momentum. With a renewed partnership with Roc Nation’s Equity Distribution, Shame released the official music video for his new new single “Get It Started” today (2/23/2023), along with a limited free download of the track via Bandcamp. Produced by The Mercenaries (Jeezy, Rapper Big Pooh, etc.), the brash and boastful song exudes the energy of Busta Rhymes and Tyler The Creator, complimented by the evocative black and white visual directed and shot by Woosy Graham.

This song is about embracing a new start. I finally feel like the chains are off when it comes to creating music for me and now I feel I can be unapologetically dope in my own right, without having to worry about pleasing those around me. I wanna create the music I want to create and have fun talking my shit!” – Shame Gang 

I wanted to make this video raw as possible and catch a nostalgic look to match the energy of what Shame Gang brought to the song.” – Woosy Graham
