St. Thomas native Shaqstar of Seaforth put lyrics, and vibes, to one of the world’s most pressing social issues today—domestic violence.  The buzzing 1Law/6ix lyricist’s “Need That” entry on TruMoneyMusiq’s (TMM) all new, 6-song, Night Beach riddim speaks to women no longer accepting abuse from their male counterparts—in an unfiltered, yet fun way.

When asked what inspired the song Shaqstar stated, “I intentionally made the song so a man can feel a way when him hear the lyrics, and look inna himself.  At the same time, I want a female hear it, stop take box and kick, and find a nice man. And it raw, becah me nah pretty it up.  Man fi have self-control, because everyone have choices in a relationship, and beating a female anno joke thing.”
