Album Review: ‘Blockbuster Success’ – Shivz


Blockbuster Success is the brand new 12 track album fresh from Hackney, East London’s own Shivz.

Shivz is no spring chicken, he’s accumulated millions of streams since his debut in 2013, with A Fire in the Booth hitting well over one million views. Striving forward with an unmatched determination to dominate his scene, his new album is the culmination of 3 years of work.

Shivz has drawn from British, American and Jamaican sounds to create his unique masterpiece of lyricism and bars on Blockbuster Success. Shiv spits without holding anything back. His style is raw and unrelenting yet still chilled and unforced. He’s got the temperament of a vet behind the mic, transitioning on this album from straight bars to melodic crooning with ease.

There’s no doubt that Shivz is a dynamic artist, he flexes a full range of styles on this one, not wasting one of the 12 tracks – it’s all killer no filler. There’s genuinely something for every rap fan on this one, from drill to old school hip-hop Shivz has got you covered.

Blockbuster Success solidifies the fact that Shivz is one of the most under-rated artists in the game. It’s one of the most dynamic albums we’ve heard all year easily. If you’re a UK rap fan this project is simply a must listen!
