Littleton’s own $wank

Littleton's own, $wank

Sha’Miere Jackson, “$wank”

Who knew someone from a little town could create such big buzz? Littleton’s very own Sha’Miere Jackson is definitely one to pay attention to right now musically. $wank grew up in up in a small town that many wouldn’t even consider as a place of residence but rather as just an area. Even though he knew that not much was around him growing up, he decided to put it in his own hands to flip the script on the people who thought so little of where he came from.  Since the age of fourteen, Jackson not only wanted to make a difference for his hometown but  wanted to make music that his father would of been proud of. Since his freshman year at North Carolina Central University, his music has had the reputation of being “refreshing” and “something that’s missing from a lot of artists today”. Early last month, Sha’Miere dropped his highly anticipated album entitled “LA” (referring to his town or “little area” and lost art) as a follow up to his Tape Before The Tape EP that he dropped this past October . His recent LA album includes Aaliyah’s Interlude and dope singles like Mary Jane, Dehydration 2, and Junior Year (Interlude).  Since creating the album, Sha’Miere’s talent has surpassed listeners beyond his school and has caught the eyes of people like 9th Wonder and Rich Homie Quan’s DJ, DJ Fresh. $wank continues to aim to be the storyteller for the people who can relate to his past experiences as well as create and produce dope music with an unpredictable flow. What he’s doing is something that will extend the appreciation beyond Littleton’s corners . Check out hip hop in it’s latest form.
