Shawn Chrystopher - They Ain’t Wanna Hear Me
When longtime reader fave Shawn Chrystopher speaks, DJBooth.net listens. Shockingly, though, there are some who simply refuse to heed his words – as the Inglewood native (and exclusive freestyle series alum) puts it on this new, unreleased track, “I try and told ‘em, They Ain’t Wanna Hear Me.” That, needless to say, is their loss; the rest of us will undoubtedly find Cameron Wallace‘s sparse, reverb-drenched boardwork too ear-catching to ignore. On the lyrical tip, Chrys comes with a blend of braggadocious wordplay and free-association that’s equally worthy of note: “This lil’ boy too nuts, balls, scrotum / See, I be sky-high wi-fi user modem.” Do you wanna hear more from this West Coast buzzmaker? Keep it locked – though this cut isn’t slated for inclusion on any forthcoming project, he is currently preparing to drop a new single, All the Other Kids. In the meantime, those who haven’t already, can check out his Booth-sponsored The Audition EP, available for free streaming and download here.
