It’s been four years since Longshot released his last true solo album, ‘Sacrifice’, on Molemen Records. After a slew of side projects and collaborations Shot is back at it with his fifth studio album ‘Addicted’.

Following the success of ‘Sacrifice’ shot put out two side projects while working on ‘Addicted’ (Civil War Pt. 2 in 2005 and ‘Issues’ a collaboration with producer Copperpot under the group name CopperShot, both released on EV Records). After spending much of ’05 and ’06 touring with the likes of Psalm One, Diverse, Jean Grae, Atmosphere, Brother Ali, Del Tha Funky Homosapien and others, Shot spent ’07 completing ‘Addicted’, enlisting producers like Magnif of Lawless Elements, OH NO, K-Kruz of Modill, up-and-comer Panthrow, Copperpot and The Molemen to handle the musical backdrops for the album. Lryically Shot focuses on a myriad of topics ranging from poverty to politics to parenting. Much like most of our human experience, Longshot is addicted to a variety of vices, some better than others, that help shape the soul and music of an artist struggling to be heard around the world. Through songs about sex, money, drugs and love, Shot personalizes his addictions and talks about them in a way that brings you closer to his side of the world.

Longshot also teams up with several talented vocalists to flesh out ‘Addicted’ with Psalm One, Diverse, One Be Lo, Ang13, Eternia and the multi-talented singer Ka Di all gracing songs. Each of the artists who contributed to the record bring their own personal addictions on board, each with a different light, helping the listener truly envelop Shots overall message. The wide variety of production and rhyming styles make this Longshot’s best work to date.
