Shame Sundays Mixtape Release Concert in Raleigh

NC rapper Shame’s live mixtape release to feature special guest appearances


RALEIGH, N.C., December 23, 2016 – On January 22th, D.C. area native and local rapper Shame will present “Shame Sunday”, a live mixtape release concert, hosted by Mir.I.Am from Radio One Raleigh’s K97.5. The concert will be held at The Pour House and is a culmination of “Shame Sundays” - 13 weeks of new music released by the artist each Sunday.
 


On his latest mixtape, Shame collaborates with local artists ranging from Quentin Rashad to Allie Capo. Attendees at the concert will hear music featuring Freedom Infinite, Silhouette, Knox, Quentin Rashad, Manifest, Bankhead, Precyce Politix, NYI, Allie Capo, Kain, KwestMusicSlim, Kenny MacGuyver, Tesh, Nacynze, Mosca Flux and Jooselord Magnus. DJ Micky Slicks will be mixing. Local band N’Kogniito will be opening the concert, and accompanying Shame on a number of songs.

Who is Shame?
Shame got his start in rap battles, where he became known to put shame to the rappers he battled. In his short time on the circuit, Shame has opened up for Layzie Bone and Do or Die, as well as appeared on bills at local venues such as The Pourhouse, Kings, Local 506 and the Pinhook. His conscious rap style evokes a J. Cole or Kendrick Lamar-type flow - but Shame’s influences range from A Tribe Called Quest, Q-Tip, Big L, Nas and Tupac.

“Shame Sundays” began as a way to reminisce to simpler times, and has morphed into an effort to showcase talented artists in the area. “Shame Sundays came about because of memories of listening to music and relaxing with family growing up on Sundays,” Shame stated. “I want people to experience the form of storytelling and lyricism through my sound. My goal is to have a following that when they first wake up on Sundays, they look forward to hearing my music.”

Shame describes the mixtape as a showcase of his growth as an artist, as well as the local talent in the area. In late 2017, Shame will release his much anticipated second project, “Room 223.” His first project, “The Sequence,” featured the lead single “Still Ballin”.
