Rapper Shug Jackson came into prominence back in the nineties when he released his first album for Def Jam Records, titled, “86 the Madness” (receiving four mics in the Source magazine).
After a decade of releasing a slew of catchy and lyrical songs, he is back on the scene with a new hit single and video called “Congratulation.”
With rampant gang violence in Chicago and race relations at the forefront of the upcoming presidential election, the song hits a current note and expresses the collective pain of street violence.
It features an inspiring hook from Walt Anderson with poignant lyrics from Shug that hit so hard his voice echoes with a deep vibrato which sounds like Kool Moe Dee mixed with 50 Cent.
Due to his recent reclaimed success and fierce entrance back into the rap game, Hollywood is taking notice. A biopic film is being developed that will capture the trajectory’s of Shug’s life, including a 1995 altercation where he was stabbed within an inch from his heart and practically died on the operating table. Three months after his recovery, more tragedy ensued as he was in a car accident and broke his neck in three places. Once again Shug recovered, and the same year his first child was born.
It only is getting better for the surviving and thriving rap star. His second hit single “It Only Gets Better” has grabbed the attention of a host of stellar independent and major labels.
Looks like Shug needs to keep those sunglasses on. His future is bright.
