Gearing up for the release of his self-titled EP, ShaqIsDope drops his latest video for the song “Power.”

In the video directed by Zac Facts, Shaq can be seen outside a Toronto public housing project while he raps over an Andreonthebeat instrumental. Originally released in July, the rapper revealed “Power” was inspired by the 50 Cent show of the same name.

“‘Power’ for me was all about making a new anthem for all the paper chasers around the world,” Shaq said. “I wanted to create a record that would inspire people to get up and go get it, whether someone is playing this record at their nine-to-five, or wherever they are, this song should be that extra motivation everyone needs.”

ShaqIsDope has yet to reveal the tracklist or artwork for his upcoming EP but did announce the project would be releasing on Nov. 16 and announced “Power” would be featured on the record.

The rapper had previously teamed up with Emilio Rojas, Gill Graff and Bernz to raise awareness for Venezuela on the song “S.O.S.,” and also paid homage to Pusha T on the track “King Push.”

While Shaq hails from Toronto, the rapper revealed to XXL that he grew up listening to east coast artists such as Fabolous and Big Pun. He said, “Pun is my favorite rapper [but] the person in the game that really inspired me to rap is Fabolous. His whole wordplay and how he put things together, it was just so different. It was something that I definitely wanted to do.”
