Video: Teaser for Jared Shaw's Music Career

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Most of you probably know Jared Shaw (a.k.a. Jared Ryan Shaw, "$kala") as Gary Shaw's son, or the man behind the pro fighting career of Kimbo Slice. Jared has been there every step of the way with Kimbo, overstating his ability, his earning potential, and his level of fame.

But the younger Shaw is not just the pro fighting mouthpiece for Kimbo Slice -- a job he still has as Kimbo heads into boxing, sort of. He's also an entertainer. A rapper...or at least I think so. Here's a brief teaser for his first "single":

What we have here is a revealing look at how a man can frequently reposition his ballcap while standing by a microphone. As for the song, it is pretty clearly disposable club mediocrity, a soundalike song that might could play harmlessly over anyone's night out and you probably wouldn't notice it sucks, because those songs all suck, and they're all pretty much the same. It is what it is. It's not for me. But a lot of things that people like are not for me, so who knows? Truth be told, he could probably make it with this. Why not?

His official Facebook page (as a Musician/Band) has this short bio:

Son of Legendary Boxing Promoter Gary Shaw , Jared Ryan Shaw is a survivor of Open-Heart surgery, & a Poet for the Wows & Woes of Romance. He has a knack for speaking the truths and inconstancies of love and relationships .. a mouthpiece for what woman want and how they feel, he takes to the platform of stage and sound to reach hearts and ears alike
