Mixtape: Shawn Chrystopher “Summerlove”

Shawn Chrystopher recently released his project Summerlove and overall it is an awesome project. His lyrics shine through in majority of the songs and he really carries the entire project on his own. The Inglewood rapper’s Summerlove includes 10 tracks. “Dreams” is reminiscent of some smooth old-school Ice Cube. “Jaded” is the highlight song on the project with the high-hats boiling over and is undeniably the more turnt up track on the project. Chrystopher features Levi Watson on two solid tracks on the project: “Pressure” and “Wassup”. We continue on to the project’s gem “Still Gon’ Make It/3:20am Instrumental” which is all about pushing through obstacles and Chrystopher spits some knowledge  [“If you aint tryna make it out/I guess we fightin’ different/ if you aint tryna hear the truth/my nigga why you listen.” ] The song leaves us with “I know I ain’t God’s favorite but I’m still gon’ make it”. The track “We Don’t F*ck With Y’all” is straight west coast LA type shit in the same genre as TDE & OPM. We played this project straight through with ease which is the true mark of a rap project. Listen below and let us know what you think.
