Footwork 4 Self's Shawn Wayne Drops True Grit Despite Stolen Computer
So clever is Wayne with sorting through his email, that he was able to patch together an album entitled True Grit. Wayne, being the studio maestro for upstart Palm Beach County rap label Footwork 4 Self Records, found many rhymes to work with right there in his Hotmail account.
Wayne was able to find verses from his Footwork 4 Self cohorts Jabrjaw and DJ Dubbs and Lox Tha Rippa. Wayne is also joined by other locals Crucial Chaotic, Cable Wraps, Iron Ora, and The Benchwarmers Clique. Additionally Wayne laid down rhymes from Ohio rapper Copywrite and Knox-- from Atmosphere's hometown of Minneapolis.
True Grit -- a play on Shawn Wayne's self-described gritty production style -- came out last week and is available on Bandcamp. Fans of throwback boom bap, Adidas-kicks-without-laces rap will dig this record. No auto-tune nonsense anywhere, just slick beats, high hats, and flow.
