Remember the name: City Shawn! One of the best projects from a new artist out the Bay I’ve heard in a while. Download it here
Via The Thizzler
Representing San Jose, City Shawn releases his new project EAST today for free download. With Bay Area factors Thizzler On The Roof, DreemTeem, Breezy Excursion, Redwall Studio and more behind the album, the streets have been humming with anticipation for City’s follow up to 2013’s Forever, which was hosted by Bay legend Traxamillion. Produced, mixed and mastered entirely by DreemTeem’s Cortez, EAST is a departure from the dark, trap heavy sound of Forever, and instead features for the most part a sample heavy “player vibe” that is sure to make you nod your head.
“All I want to accomplish with EAST is to show people you can just be you and it will work,” says City, “There’s many sides to every person, and EAST is just one side of me. The reason EAST is so different from Forever is because they’re two different albums and I was at two different stages in my life while I was making them. Forever 2 is next though!” Shouting out #SanJoseVsEverybody, City Shawn is determined to put San Jose on the map – and EAST is only the beginning.
