Chicago MC Shaun Scales To Release Debut Mixtape "Yours Truly"
The mixtape and debut solo effort from north side Chicago native Shaun Scales titled "Yours Truly", presented by DJ Gemini Jones and Coast 2 Coast, is set for release on October 4th, 2010 and the emcee is here with the first single, "City Of Men", produced by Boonie Mayfield. This is the announcement, the introduction, the manifesto of a rapper who has a lot to give and even more to gain.
Scales began crafting his poetry at a young age through journaling and entering poetry contests at the encouraging of a teacher in seventh grade. Growing up amongst a family of musicians, the opportunity to freestyle and try his hand at rap came when he began writing to the beats of his aunt and uncle who were at the time a rap duo. Surprised at the tenacity of young Shaun, he was urged to continue writing.
Following the likes of Nas, Tupac, Biggie and others, he incorporated those stylings into his own theatrics, detailing his life’s experiences and finding his voice in the process of developing his lyrical stature. As a musician, Shaun has channeled the obstacles in his life, namely growing up without his father, into motivation and tales of truth to perfect his legend.
"I don’t see myself buckling. I learned everything from women. I understand women and growing up, a lot of my perceptions are of what women think."
For this young star, the design of music structure is all about self expression and the method of operation for giving his voice to the masses.
"I have a voice that people should hear. A lot of my songs are stories. Shaun Scales is an artist that people want to hang out with. I’m the next door neighbor."
With subject matter touching on everything from street justice to fashion, to the overall love for music, there is no comparing Shaun’s flow and lyrical skill. Whether harmonizing or creating the uber catchy hook, Shaun has carved his own niche and high level of expertise in his lane.
While the MC is from Chicago and reps his city to the fullest, the goal is to be a household name, a brand, a combination of the forces in Hip-Hop, culminating in the most diverse and solid product possible; "Your Truly".
"When people hear me, I don’t want them to say ‘that dude is from Chicago.’ When you think of Shaun Scales, I want you to think of the music. When you think of Chicago I want you to think of Shaun Scales."
"Yours Truly" is available October 4th, 2010.
