Shanti Dope on what inspires him in writing his songs
Sa ‘Nadarang’ ang inspirasyon ko ay ang mga experiences ng mga kaibigan ko, yung mga bagong naglalabasan ngayon at mga modern sound (I got inspiration from my friends, the things that are happening now and the modern sound while I was working for ‘Nadarang’).
What comes into experiences, and trends thrill the artists in writing songs, according from Shanti Dope. With the stories inclined through his music, your young rapper could not believe that it could network many people. Even the youth, it is a seat-blowing truth that the song marked them.

Shanti Dope before relies in the mood he feels on given beat. But today, his way of handling songs is by knowing what could be timely relevant and relatable by us. The level of understanding of the general public is considered on his songs.
