Poised to be next on the list of Canada's hottest musical exports, Shaun Boothe is back with his latest track, "Zimbabwe."It's Been a minute since we heard from the homie Shaun, but "Zimbabew" is the reemergence of the heavy weight Toronto emcee. Riding smooth over the Flume produced instrumental, Boothe's flow is easy to get lost in."Zimbabwe" is a nice preview of what fans can expect to hear from Boothe, stay tuned to see what else Shaun brings to the table later in 2014
Not to long ago Shaun Boothe was in town performing at The Blakshire Pub. Capturing Casper's set during the song "It's Gonna Get Better", Live Unlimited got some great shots as Casper tore up the stage that night. You can catch him opening up for Shad this Saturday with Treetop alongside him, so if your feeling this video and can make it out to the upcoming show, prepare to be amazed.
In my opinion, a hip-hop show with a live band is a totally different experience. I've witnessed shows with them and seen the reactions they get. It's a more vibrant experience, the crowd reaction is more intense and it takes a lot of synchronizing between the band and the artist. As Shaun Boothe says in this video "To me, a big part of survival is evolution." and that's the truth, no Elliott Wilson. Toronto emcee Shaun Boothe's mini-documentary takes you along with him through his journey to transform his album Waiting Room into something you can remember forever as he performs the entire album on stage with a 7 piece band. AHR Films captures the whole experience on camera as Shaun Boothe raises the bar to a whole other level. Take a minute to check this amazing interview/performance and let me know what you think, is a hip-hop show better with a live band or without?

We've shown love to the man Shaun Boothe since The Come Up Show's first event, so there is nothing we like to see more than positive vibes sent his way. Shaun released these new visuals to "Child Soldier" which showcase his musical talents while at the same time, "giving a voice to the voiceless children across the world"...
“Child Soldier” is Boothe’s musical effort at giving a voice to the voiceless children across the world that are manupulated and physically “forced into the armed forces”. Written well over a year ago Boothe created the song after embarking on a nationwide human rights school tour. Inspired by everything he learned during that tour he went home, researched more about the issues and did what he does best – put it into a song. Since the Kony2012 campaign, much has been discussed and debated in the media as of late with regards to this global issue. Who is to blame? Where is this happening? How do we stop this? Who should we support? However, amist all the controversy, it’s important we not forget what our real concerns should truly be – the children. Directed by Footage TV, and starring 10 year old KJ, the song and video speak from the perspective of a child soldier. The purpose of this video is to raise awareness and provoke thought. Please feel free to circulate broadly. We all have a part to play in the betterment of a world we all share.
