Shaquille Buchanan was born and raised in Muncie, IN. 20 years young and middle child of 4. Grew up with a passion for football and played it throughout high school. Shortly after graduating, he linked up with his childhood friend from Vegas, Brandon Martin. They continued their dreams of being mainstream musical sensations. After Shaq released his first mixtape, he started a buzz around the town. Two more mixtapes follow. Shaq's latest mixtape, Fresh Out The Chamber,was uploaded to HotNewHipHop.com. It generated over 2,500 listens and over 90 downloads. His artist profile has generated over 34,000 views. With those numbers, he build up enough followers and got offered a deal to open up for Bonecrusher for his 10 city tour. He would open up at every show, but funds got in the way of that. Sadden, but not discouraged, he kept working and prepare a new project (releasing this month) for people to hear. He is currently working on a new project that will be named "Fresh Out The Chamber 2". He linked up with local producer Andy Chrisman to make this happen. Fresh Out The Chamber 2 is anticipated to be his best mixtape yet. His new single "I Used 2 Love You" is currently being shipped out to radio stations and trying to earn airplay. In the meantime, Shaq is performing at local bars and clubs. He has two shows coming up 5/11/12 in Lima, Ohio and another in August (exact date not certain). Shaq is looking for sponsorship, management, and of course record deals. Wanting to show what he has to offer, his ambition stays strong and he keeps following his dreams. Each day is a step closer to his dreams.
