Shomori Pass’ Hip Hop lineage is as much authentic as it is unique. He’s considered the protégé’ of U.S. multi-platinum and gold recording artist Jah Skillz who herself is the protégé’ of Warren G. While growing up in Los Angeles, a brother-like bond formed with Thug Life legend Mopreme Shakur who himself is the older brother of the late great Tupac Shakur. All of these moments became priceless experiences that defined him as an international rap star. It’s no wonder why his last album release “Rule the World” was entitled such. The album also features Hip Hop legend Rakaa of Dilated Peoples on the lead single with the same name. The song “Attitude” is another standout track that features fellow Los Angeles natives Shade Sheist and Shane Trace. “Rule the World” even features a track with his mentor, Mopreme Shakur on the song “A Thug’s Life.” The album showcases the growth of an artist who was influenced by many elite mentors, respectively in their music fields.
