How do you get today’s hip-hop lovers to listen to the wisdom of yesterday’s leaders? Simple: incorporate those timeless words into a rap cut that’ll have their Trunk Shakin’. On the latest leak off his forthcoming full-length, West Coast phenom Shawn Chrystopher interweaves his own rhymes with samples from Malcolm X‘s historic speech, “The Ballot or the Bullet.” Backed by the booming boardwork of Chrystopher and Zaire, this entertaing and edifying selection is sure to leave heads amped for the September 13, arrival of Shawn Chrys’ latest street album, Silent Films for the Blind.
