The song pairs the phenom with PGF Nuk, who is quickly making a name for himself as one of Chicago’s most exciting new talents. “We Droppin” is accompanied by a new video, which brings the track’s explosive energy to life. Watch it HERE

It’s fitting that “We Droppin” sees New York and Chicago connect. The song captures the freewheeling danger and serious stakes that made drill music fascinating when it emerged from the latter city a decade ago and has continued to be a central part of the genre’s thrill as it spread across the globe. Where Sha EK opens the track in with a fury of rapid-fire bars and sheer power, PGF Nuk takes a slightly subtler approach, injecting his bars boasting about the different elements including his fashion.” The video communicates all of this confidence and vitality.

Sha EK has earned rapturous acclaim for his contribution to drill music’s continued evolution in New York. Publications including Pitchfork and Complex have touted him as one of the genre’s most promising young artists, one adept at inserting his deeply felt, street-level reportage into drill’s deceptively intense technical framework. With “We Droppin,” Sha EK proves he’s earned his spot as one of New York’s most acclaimed new rappers.
