A controversial MC from Sevilla, Shotta (aka Ignacio Gonzáles Rodríguez) began his profession beneath the wing of his older sibling, the equally well-noted Tote Ruler. Jointly, they released the demonstration XXL in 2000, and a maxi as well as the LP Tu Madre Ha sido una Foca in 2002, which broke information for the hip-hop record in Spain. Shotta’s initial solo record, La Selva, made an appearance in 2004. By this time around, he had been a recognised Spanish rap superstar, and could reap the benefits of many high-profile guests and companies. His trademark design was seen as a strong vocabulary and acidic laughter: he was notorious for his rants against the cathedral and the authorities, and his paeans to masturbation. Nevertheless, by enough time of his third record, 2011’s Profundo, Shotta was displaying indications of a newfound maturity and an elevated social conscience.
