SEAN HAS AWESOME MUSIC/MAGIC – MR. SHAM
Full disclosure Mr. Sham is my co-MC in our So Cal based nerd-rap group The West Coast Avengers.
That said folks still gotta peep this album- if you like Atmosphere, Slug, Faimkills or Kid Presentable's lane of dark barsy sex and love themed poetry over dope moody boom-bap then have I got an album for you.
With 9 tracks produced by RasJosh Beats and 4 from Calmfixup it's a family affair but these knocker ass instrumentals underpinning Sham's flows do not disappoint. The Rok3m produced "Burgundies" is also a stand-out. Much of the studio work on this record was done by Ca$hOnly.
What keeps striking me about this album is how it’s NOT just a collection of sexy ex-love songs which it easily could have been and probably would have still been dope as. There are bangers, singles, nerdy anthems, upbeat romps but still a healthy dose of hot girls and guys with crystals, drugs and weak wills. I’m also on the last track so I should stop gushing about this record but Sham has been crafting this album for years, he took his time and reached beyond himself to create a 40-something minute LP full of not just good raps but good songs – it’s time to dig in.
