(I’m Not Your) N.I.G.G.E.R. [VIDEO]

Filed under: Music, Shawn Chrystopher, Video

Here is the second video off my mixtape “I.W.G.: I Wear Glasses”

.
I really hope people enjoy this video. It seems Black History Month really doesn’t mean that much to us anymore, and though I won’t be able to change it single-handedly, I would however like to draw some attention to show everyone, especially my fellow artists, where exactly we came from.

I watch Spike Lee’s “Bamboozled” religiously and realize that a lot of the Black musicians today take their notoriety and success as something that is owed to them. I really hope after watching this video, that mindset changes;  for the better.

9-5

Not the regular 9-5…. we went from 9pm-5am (5:45am to be exact)

I didn’t even work on my album tonight which is the crazy part. El Prez, C San, K Mak, DNEZ, H.O.P.E., Julien, and Kurt all came by and we worked on two songs (one with a bunch of rappers on it..and the other is H.O.P.E.’s song featuring me).

We have video footage of the session that will be going up soon!

.

-Recap-

Tracks recorded: 2 (Untitled Track, Who I Be)

Movies watched: 1 Movie and 1 LONG ass DVD of the Planet Earth Series (that shit was crazy)

Randomness: The Planet Earth Series was FULL of randomness (too much to just list a couple)

Shawn Chrystopher feat. Sam Sparro “Not Really Here”

shawnchrys

I aboslutely think this is one of the best songs I’ve ever done. The funny thing about this is I’ve literally had it for 4 months….what you’re listening to is the 8th and final mixed version of this song.

I really wanted to keep it for my album…but i couldnt wait until the fall for you guys to hear it!!

PLUS..

This kinda gives you guys a feel of the direction my album will be headed..sorta like a sneak peek..lol

Last night, we had a full house come through….

Convinced, Chris Focus, E-Dub (Whateyethought.com), Eazee, Zaire, Kurt, Evan, and Curtis all came by to either be apart of or just to watch the magic happen.

A productive night that ended at about 4:30 am again (except Kurt and Curtis both fell asleep and didn’t leave til 10am this morning).

.

-Recap-

Tracks Recorded: 2 (Boy I Get it (Convinced laid his verse), That’s All I Gotta Say)

Movies Watched: 3.5 (Sin City (didn’t finish it), Paid in Full (again), Wedding Crashers, and Jackass 2)

Games Played: 3 rounds of UNO and lots of golf

Randomness: Curtis performing magic tricks, and a 6am cereal run for no reason.

By now, you should know that the title of my debut LP is

“A City With No Seasons”

I named it that has a poetic-style title that would pay homage to the city I was raised in (because out here, there are literally no seasons…I could wear shorts in December or July).

.

Last night, Chris Focus and Eazee St. came by the house-turned-studio and we just sat and vibed all night…til 4:30am….

I played them 2 two tracks…my intro and “Believer”

.

-Recap-

Tracks Recorded: 2 (Boy I Get it, Heartbreaker)

Movies Watched: 3 (Paid in Full, Batman Begins, Step Brothers)

Games Played: 5 rounds of UNO
