King Shampz flirts with speed on the new single “Autobahn”
Philly rapper King Shampz has been rocking a slew of great singles from his upstart label Dead Wrong Records over the past year, championing artists like Frio and Blak. Today, he’s firmly back in the driver’s seat with “Autobahn” – he tells us the song is inspired by his love of fast cars and by basketball player Drazen Petrovic, who he’s a fan of. “Drazen died on the Autobahn,” says Shampz. “And I felt like this was a lyrical race.”
The song comes with a punchy, RZA-esque beat by Shampz’ frequent collaborator Azzan, along with a head-spinning guitar sample. Give it a listen below.
