Shawn Chrystopher - Can’t Take That From Me

Posted 6 years ago
Producer:
Cameron Wallace
Album:
The Audition EP

Fresh off the release of Booth-premiered, reader-acclaimed leak Like a Kid Again, house favorite Shawn Chrystopher is back to remind fans and haters alike that, at the end of the day, he’s simply looking out for numero uno – in his own words: “I did this sh*t for me, and you Can’t Take That From Me.” Be that as it may, the Inglewood native comes with rhymes that just about anyone should be able to appreciate, especially those who enjoy playing spot-the-allusion – Home Alone, Gullah Gullah Island, I Love Lucy and The Matrix are just a few of the many pop-cultural touchstones Chrystopher references over Cameron Wallace‘s sparse, simmering synth instrumental. Not to mention, he drops the line “I won’t stop like a sentence with three commas,” which, as a guy who rarely writes a sentence with fewer than three commas, I found sort of hilarious. Anyway, it’s crystal clear that Shawn Chrystopher’s self-interest is listeners’ gain. For more evidence, check out the rising star’s latest EP, The Audition, when it hits the ‘net March 23.
