SHAWN JACKSON’s latest project, “First of All...” is a highly anticipated album that aims to satisfy true fans that feel a void within quality hip hop music. The album is a wonderful balance of sounds which features artists such as GUILTY SIMPSON, (Stones Throw Records), TY of TY & KORY, DOUBLE K (PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS), TA’RAACH (C.R.A.C.), BELOVED, and COMEL (TIME MACHINE). It’s balance and well rounded features give listeners something that is often missing from hip hop, and further proves that Shawn Jackson is one of the strongest MCs in the game. His swagger, rhyme play, and well thought out content sets a high standard for those that choose to follow.
