Shoto Khan delivers a high-octane approach to hip-hop music that is both forward-thinking and culturally unique. Deriving his name from Shotokan Karate and the great Ghengis Khan, he makes the listener well aware of his love for martial arts and Asian culture. His obsession with the various fighting styles has led to him crafting his music in an aggressive manner, with a furious delivery and a ferocious flow that is reminiscent of a cross between acts like Gravediggaz and Lil Jon.
I love all types of music not just hip hop. I enjoy rock, metal, r&b and gospel. I support all types of music. Martial arts (even tho I do not practice it) has always been a thing for me since I was a kid. To me music is kinda of like Martial Arts with all of the different styles and disciplines.
