If you aren’t hip to Shawn Chrystopher, watching his video for “The Revolution” would be a great place to start. The last leak from his freshly-cooked The Lovestory LP finds the Inglewood MC rattling off rhymes about everything from race relations to growing up without his pops. However, instead of spitting somber bars to reel us in, the Honour Roll rapper boastfully serves his own self-produced horn chops with the same confidence he used to see past those high-level hang-ups, via a pick up and go flow that continually exceeds your expectations throughout the short two-minute spin.
Once you’re sold, head over to iTunes and give the rest of Shawn’s Lovestory LP a chance. With features from Dom Kennedy, Buddy, Polyester the Saint and production from Timbaland, this project should stack up well with the rest of the quality releases this summer.
