South African hip hop has made massive progress over the last few years both commercially and creatively with so many new artists breaking through the barriers of the industry and carving out their fan bases successfully. Shane Eagle is undoubtedly the leader in the regard, with his claim to fame starting on Vuzu’s lead hip hop reality TV show “The Hustle” where he finished 4th, Shane has grown from strength to strength opening his own record label and studio “Eagle Entertainment”, featuring on South Africa’s number one song in 2017 ‘Mayo’, releasing 6 singles (Way Up, Cutting Corners, I’m Back, Top Floor, Mary Mary and JULIA.) all of which have been both critically and commercially acclaimed by both peers and the public.
After a year and a half of recording and dropping singles, Shane Eagle is dropping his highly anticipated debut album titled Yellow on the 31.08.2017. The album will be available on all digital platforms with the hard-copy scheduled to be released at the end of September.
“What I want people to realize when they listen to this album is that it is perfectly normal to be yourself in every situation, that is how we create the realest version of your reality” – Shane Eagle
Over the last few years South African fans have been crying out for a new sound, a new voice and in some cases a new face to lead the rise of the new school, well, they don’t need to look any further because Shane Eagle is here and he has the music to support his claim to the throne of the new school.
