Rapper-songwriter Sean Patrick Ramos, 17, who is professionally known as Shanti Dope, is bringing the Filipino rap music into the international scene. As he celebrates one year in the industry and more than 20 million views and streams for his hit song “Nadarang,” he adds collaborations with international artists to the long list of achievements in his young career.
Shanti Dope is expected to bring his A-game in on the international remix of the song “Crazy” by rising American singer MiMi. He joins NomaD and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony member Krayzie Bone in the catchy hip-hop tune also providing a unique Filipino twist on his verse.
“Crazy” does not only feature the “Nadarang” rapper as an artist but also the Filipino language as he raps in his native tongue on his verse. To be able to showcase the national language on a worldwide stage is a big feat for Filipino artists, especially in the genre of rap as young Filipino rapper continues to build bridges across different genres, platforms, and audiences through his music.
The rap prodigy will not only appear on this international track. Along with his mentor Aristotle Pollisco, 40, who is professionally known as Gloc-9, he is also slated to be special a guest in the upcoming Ultimate hiphop OG Bone Thugs-N-Harmony concert on September 5, 2018 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines.
In 2017, Shanti Dope released his self-titled studio album and his first extended play titled “Materyal,” which contains the song “Nadarang.” Both are now available on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer and Amazon under Universal Records.
The international remix of MiMi’s song “Crazy” featuring Shanti Dope, Krayzie Bone, and NomaD is now available on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer and Amazon. Here is a teaser from the song:
