Shawn Chrystopher - One of My Homies

Posted 4 years ago
Producer:
Zaire Koalo and JQ Lamaj
Album:

The next time someone asks you about your friends, don’t respond with that old TLC one-liner. This morning, Shawn Chrystopher leaked that new-new so now you can respond with some new slanguistics. One of My Homies answers all the critics about the emcee’s influences and gives you a little insight about who he is through the faces of his friends. From every side of the box, Mr. Chrys gives you a simple, uninhibited trip into the lives of his closest, all while riding to the roll of the snare from California production duo Zaire Koalo and JQ Lamaj. The two give Shawn something to coast on as the backdrop is the classic sound of spaceships and the edge of ol’ skool Cali; incorporating a couple of scratches and a clip of an infamous Bun B quote makes this joint a dragon of a track, a little steam for his upcoming album, My Name is Shawn, due out July 15. Enjoy One of My Homies in the whip and while you’re at it, download Shawn Chrystopher’s latest work, Silent Films for the Blind, right here.
