Shawn Chrystopher - Believer

Posted 7 years ago
Producer:
Zaire Koalo
Album:
A City With No Seasons

Untitled and Lose Your Mind, the first and second official leaks off Shawn Chrystopher‘s A City With No Seasons LP, both earned high praise in the Booth, but it seems the Inglewood emcee’s saved the best for last.  Making its world premiere at this very site, Believer hit our inbox accompanied by a personal note in which the artist stated “this record means a hell of a lot to me.”  Of course, even if he hadn’t told us, it would’ve been clear from the track itself—over Zaire Koalo lush mix of chilly synth ambiance, warm strings, and energetic midtempo percussion, the emcee gives a honest, sincere, and very real account of the inner conflicts that come with his artistic grind.  Introspective cuts like this one tend to net rave reader reviews, and the eloquence with which Shawn Chrystopher bares his heart will doubtless make the track a DJBooth smash.  If this cut’s made a Believer out of you (or if you’ve been a Shawn Chrystopher fan from the beginning), you’re sure to find more to your liking on A City With No Seasons, set to drop on the 11th.
