Sometimes, for an artist, it can be hard to tell if a new record is dope or not, since the Yes-men in their corner won’t tell them the honest truth (“Ya sh*t stinks, keep it movin!). It isn’t difficult, however, when Timbaland gives you his seal of approval and offers to executive produce your album. OnBYD, a single off the forthcoming full-length, Booth regular Shawn Chrystopher strikes just the right balance between creating something that hip-hop heads will enjoy equally as much as someone who favors a more mainstream sound. The radio-friendly appeal of the record comes from the synth-heavy, energetic production work from Cameron Wallace (and Chrystopher) and the pure hip-hop charm stems from the rapid, leanin’ flow and quirky bars from both Chrystopher and his good buddy, Buddy. If BYD struck a chord with you (its so damn catchy, how could it not??) then be sure to keep an eye open for The Lovestory LP, Shawn’s formal debut due out this summer.
