Shanti Dope is back with a new song! “Tricks” is an R&B crossover track that features the lyricist singing an English hook with autotune for the first time ever. Additionally, the track’s rap verses showcase Shanti’s signature storytelling prowess and wordplay.
The song’s standout line is “Parang si Rihanna, babae pero hustla//Ayaw mo sa drama, gusto mo sa gangsta” which translates to “She’s like Rihanna, a woman, but a hustler// You don’t like drama, you like a gangsta.” “Tricks” is about someone in need of both a mental and physical connection with someone else.
