Shawn K – Blaq Rocc (EP)

Twitter: @ShawnKAllDay

After years in the making Blaq Rocc is finally finished. Shawn K delivers this 8 track project entirely produced by Relta, with the exception of contributions from TrapMoneyBenny on the last song. Just about everything in Shawn’s music stands out from anyone else’s. His raspy voice, melodic singing, and rapid delivery all combines for an artist who has found their own unique style. Influenced by other music innovators like Cleveland’s own Kid Cudi and Chicago’s Chance The Rapper, Shawn is determined to pave his own lane in the rap game. This conscience music spreads a message about self awareness and real life emotions that any human being can understand and connect with. Only two other artists, NicX & 6LACK, make appearances on this EP. You can listen to the project in its entirety below.

Shawn K – Hendrix (Video)

Shawn K is easily one of my favorite up and coming artists out of Cleveland. I was pumped when he asked me to premier his new video on my YouTube channel. This song is called “Hendrix,” and it will appear on his upcoming EP”Blaq Rocc which is expected to release this summer. I’ve heard a great majority of the project and you’re not gonna want to miss out on hearing it! Pay attention to what this guy is doing!

Today is truly a blessed day! We receive a track titled “Hendrix” from Shawn K‘s upcoming project. Shawn’s raspy yet melodic voice glides over impressive production from the over seas producer Relta. I’m lucky to have heard a majority of his project, and I just can’t wait for the world to hear as well! As of now, it’s my favorite project of 2015. If you enjoy this track, be sure to check out some of his other releases “Instant” and “Imaginations Over Me.”

Shawn K – Instant

I can tell early on when an artist is going to be a problem, and Shawn K is that artist. The thing that separates Shawn from others is his unique voice, the message he is sharing through his music, and his incredible flow. Peep the dope wordplay in his verses as well on his latest offering “Instant.”
