Shaquille Pinckney is no stranger to breaking musical records when it comes down to historic moments North of Boston. As of today Shaquille is the most streamed independent rapper from Lynn, Ma and from the North Shore region. Considering hip-hop artist Token is signed to a label, Mr. Pinckney would be considered under him but when it comes to the independent game S.M.P sits on top currently. Being 29, Shaquille has been song writing ever since he was a child; a tender age of 8. S.M.P has been rapping for 21 years now regarding the song writing side of things, and formulating hit records. So, it was no surprise when S.M.P’s break out single “Best Day Ever” hit 1.5 million views in the year of 2020 followed by Mr. Pinckney’s other breakout single “Breeze” Ft. Crazy Child on their record which totaled up to 500,000+ streams across all platforms it goes to show how much talent Shaquille really has when it comes to captivating an audience through positivity.
Not only is he North Shore’s most streamed hip hop artist independently – he is also the most active public figure in Lynn, Ma currently. Being the 1st verified hip-hop artist in Lynn, Ma Shaquille takes pride in representing his city, God, and Himself whether the public stands by him or not. “Numbers never lie, and hard work always speaks the truth.” is a motto Mr. Pinckney stands by when it comes to his success in the music industry. “You gotta be willing to work day in and day out to be able to reach success.” Shaquille praises God for all of his accomplishments but is very proud of himself for reaching all of the milestones that he has. “I want to be somebody kids of the next generation can look up to.”
Mr. Pinckney says “The smartest one, wins” and credits digital marketing for his rise of fame as well as God. With over ten millions plus online Facebook users visiting his profile, and having the biggest Facebook page in the region independently it goes to show that believing in yourself, and heavy digital marketing is the new way of breaking through in this industry we call – hip hop. Standing with over 92k followers on his band page “S.M.P” and 43k supporters on his verified profile page it makes sense to declare SoulMusicPoetry is doing something right, and doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
