Shawn Chrystopher - Lose Your Mind

Posted 7 years ago
Producer:
Shawn Chrystopher
Album:
A City With No Seasons

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from hip-hop, it’s this: in order to be the best, you have to say you’re the best.  Thus, whenever anyone asks me what I do for a living, I respond, “Oh, I’m just the greatest track reviewer in the history of the world.”  That usually impresses people so much that they roll their eyes and walk away, too awestruck to continue the conversation.  As evidenced by the second official leak off A City With No Seasons, Shawn Chrystopher takes a similar level of pride in his craft—making its exclusive, 24-hour premiere right here in the Booth, Lose Your Mind is all about the Inglewood emcee’s commitment to greatness.  Fittingly, the track’s a one-man show; in addition to rapping his own praises in confident, braggadocio-drenched verses, Chrystopher backs his rhymes with tension-fraught synth strings, harpsichord, and even a little old-school beatboxing.  Showcasing formidable skills on both sides of the boards, the rapper makes a convincing case for his supremacy.  If you agree that this West Coast buzzmaker is destined to climb to the top of the game, be sure and grab a copy of his latest full-length when it drops August 11th.
