Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

[VIDEO] SHALOC RENAISSANCE - "GRITTY CITY" ft. J.D. and J BASEMENT | @ShalocR

East Coast Artist Shaloc Renaissance teams up with J.D. and J Basement for the visual "Gritty City"

Shaloc Renaissance hails from Pittsburgh, PA. He has been creating music for over 20 years as a "positive outlet." He was introduced to Bob Marley's music when he was in high school and grew up in the "Golden Era" of Hip- Hop. He writes lyrics about his life experiences in the inner city and expresses his musical talents throughout the city. Upon graduating from high school, Shaloc Renaissance attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh where he gained experience about recording equipment, digital synthesizers, drum machines, samplers, and live instruments in their audio and music program.

At the age of 19, Shaloc Renaissance lost his brother to gang violence. This is when he found refuge in music and began to see just how much of a role it played in his life. Music became the therapy that would help him heal from his brother's traumatic passing and the PTSD associated with it. Because of the positivity and creativity being birthed from exploring music - giving up wasn't an option for Shaloc Renaissance.

Shaloc Renaissance further honed his musical skills by performing in popular Pittsburgh venues such as; Frankie's, Rosebud, Mellon Park, Dowe's on 9th Street, Shadow Lounge, and other various locations. He also performed with several artists and producers representing Pittsburgh, Ohio, Atlanta, Florida; just to name a few.

"I CREATE ANTHEM MUSIK THAT PEOPLE CAN FEEL, EMBRACE, GET INSPIRED, AND MOTIVATE THEMSELVES!"~ Shaloc Renaissance

From 2003-2010, SHALOC formed POWA- HOUSE Unlimited Entertainment- producing some of the city's hottest mixtape releases, as well as creating and promoting some of the city's livest local shows! Recently, reinventing himself as a musical artist, his evolved identity is "Shaloc Renaissance", which simply translates " I AM THE EMBODIMENT OF REVIVING THE ART, REBIRTH & RENEWAL. He created an innovative, musical, and cultural brand called " Renaissance Authentic Music ( R.A.M.)." The production company produces high-quality visual and lyrical content, and eye-catching fashion to engage and inspire its fan base.

Additionally, Shaloc Renaissance dedicates his time to his inner-city youth mentorship program. Birthed from his own experiences, this initiative was created for the inner city youth as a positive outlet. Shaloc knows, all too well, the negative influences that children can be exposed to in neighborhoods like the one he grew up in. What's next for Shaloc? He's busy working on his album titled “The Dawning,” with hopes to release sometime in August. Be sure to connect with Shaloc Renaissance on all social media outlets and digital music platforms.
