Music Mondays: Shawn Smith

Shawn Smith releases his highly anticipated new project, Til Death Due Us Art today via Sink or Swim Productions. With endorsements from top lyricists like Joe Budden and Black Thought as a skilled rapper and wordsmith, alongside a record breaking freestyle on Cosmic Kev’s radio show, Shawn Smith returns with a powerful statement on his latest project continuing to cement his namesake.  Delivering slick bars and hard hitting production, the project features production assists from Grammy nominated producer, Weathrman. Shawn’s latest release Til Death Due Us Art is available everywhere now.

Released during one of the most socially, politically and economically uncertain times in our country, the new project comes fresh off the heels of his “Braggadocious” visual. The black and white video finds the southwest Philadelphia rapper walking through the neighborhood dropping gems and inspiring hope in the community. The black and white color palette perfectly underscores the boom-bat inspired feel of the Charlie Heat-produced track. 

After building a local buzz in Philly under the alias Young Savage, Shawn reclaimed his own name for his latest autobiographical debut, SINK OR SWIM: A SHAWN SMITH STORY. Known for his ferocious freestyles and slick punchlines, Smith’s forthcoming music zooms in on unapologetic, big-picture storytelling, highlighting his Southwest Philly upbringing. Providing perspective on his journey without pious intentions, Smith has carefully fostered that balance – equal parts sharp-tongued and warm-hearted – providing a refreshing perspective on the too common realities of growing up on the southwest side of Philly.
