Sugur Shane Premieres his new music video Kill Da Bitch on Billboard.com

Sugur Shane drops his Kill Da Bitch Music Video Premiering on Billboard.com

“Pairing Philly hip-hop sensibilities with house-inspired beats, Sugur Shane delights in defying classification.

The title track off the animated rapper’s new Kill Da Bitch EP reflects this indefinable approach, layering chopped vocal snippets and searing rap verses over grumbling synth bass and stuttered four-to-the-floor beats.

“’Kill Da Bitch’ was from the My Night with Junior mixtape, and the goal with that project was to recreate the classic ballroom sound with a new twist, something a bit different from what the ballroom scene is used to hearing,” says Shane. “The track is a battle track, and when we battle it’s all about show and tell, taking tricks and forms and moves to the next level.” And despite the title, there’s no misogyny intended: The out-and-proud rapper’s song refers to it being a vogue battle anthem.

Watch the full premiere of the track’s music video exclusively on Billboard:



Shane directed the high-octane music video with Harry Paris and Sage Caswell and says the clip was intended to impart the visceral energy and excitement inherent to Philadelphia’s underground ballroom scene.

“We threw a party to shoot this video, it was a little mini ball with performances in Old City, Philadelphia,” says Shane. “There was no rehearsal, no story line, just a display of how Philly really vogues. Everyone is so stuck on the New York scene, so we wanted to portray what a ball in Philly is really like.”

Sugur Shane’s Kill Da Bitch EP is now available through Main Course on iTunes and SoundCloud.”

Sugur Shane Premieres Kill Da Bitch on Complex

Check out the latest on Complex with Sugur Shane

“You might find it difficult to stand still while listening to “Kill Da Bitch,” Sugur Shane’s pounding new single. The Complex premiere of the track comes a day before his EP release of the same name. Hopefully the four additional songs on that project match this effort’s wild intensity. Though Shane might not ring a bell, the house-influenced rapper has been crushing tracks and club rooms for more than a decade now.

Blacking out over a dynamic beat, this Philly spitter also doubles as a DJ. Thanks to flurried vocal samples, heavy bass and upbeat drums, Shane proves himself more than capable of moving a crowd. Stream “Kill Da Bitch” below and pre-order Shane’s Kill Da Bitch EP on iTunes, out on Main Course tomorrow (August 12). ”

Sugur Shane’s Kill Da Bitch EP Artwork & Preview Revealed OUT 8/12

Kill Da Bitch can mean many things, but at the end of that day if you aren’t Killin Da Bitch, you may as well stay home and snuggle with a body pillow. On “Kill Da Bitch”, Sugur Shane lunges at you like an upset puma, spitting acid & clawing you to shreds with his rapid and cunty flow. The bass rumbles, the crashes deliver enough impact to shatter your mom’s fine China, and the levels of shade are at dangerous levels. How’d this battle turn into a fight?! On the flip side we finally see the release of “Buddah VS Sugur”, which was famously played by Total Freedom at Hood By Air’s showcase finale during 2014’s New York Fashion Week. The chants and stabs guide you while the distant air horns shriek at you drawing you into the circle at the center of the dance floor.This is the definition of a Vogue battle anthem. The EP is complimented by remixes from New Orleans natives Kid Kamillion & Jesse Slayter, Team Supreme’s power house Colta and M.O.D.’s #1 shooter Lil Texas.

Shane currently resides in Philly and draws heavily from 90’s dance music and hip hop, citing Gillete & Notorious B.I.G. as some of his major influences. The touted Butch Queen is a staple at Balls & Vogue nights up & down the East Coast, and is proceeded by his long list of collaborators & supporters including scene purveyors like Tom Stephan, Evian Christ, L-Vis 1990, Sam Tiba, Dubbel Dutch, Jubilee, Mike Q and Vjjuan Allure.. and thats just the tip of the iceberg. Shane truly possesses a very unique and animated delivery previously unseen. If you don’t recognize the realness, shade on you.

01. Kill Da Bitch

SUGUR SHANE PRESENTS HIS SUMMER/FALL SAMPLER! TUNE IN!

Sugur Shane: As I get closer to finishing this mixtape and several releases; I decided to put up a sampler of everything that will be out. Sometimes the wait in between releases is so long, I don’t like to keep my fans waiting! That is going to change very soon though. My producer and I have been in the studio non-stop so we can work on records while the releases are hitting the stores. This sampler is a combination of everything from house music to vogue music. Since being apart of Qweenbeat I decided to put together my own mixtape since we have mastered this. The mixtape I’m planning to release in August for free, followed by an EP I will release independently on my own. If you didn’t know Phillyz Voice is now available on Itunes, Amazon, and other retailers. Listen to the sampler below:
