When I first heard Catch Me If You Can by Shawn Chrystopher, I was so impressed, that I had to crank it up for my neighbors to have the same experience. So who is Shawn Chrystopher? He is native of Inglewood, California, who graduated from high school at 16 years old, was awarded a 4 1/2 year scholarship to the University of Southern California, where he studied Political Science, but more importantly he has been perfecting his musical craft for years creating a signature sounds which he would describe as the new west coast. Catch Me If Your Can is off his most recent EP You and Only You which is available for free on his website.
John Simon Daily had a chance to catch up with this rising star from the Golden State to discuss his place in today’s Hip Hop and where his life’s choices are taking him.
