So, What do y'all want to know??
Let's start with the name Shaymin. It stands for Stimulation Heals All Young Minds Influenced Negatively. My chosen Emcee name also derives from Shamanism which was once a staple as far as religious practice was concerned in many Native American tribes and is still practiced in many different corners of the world. The Shaman is the elder wise presence in the tribe who would work magic to heal the sick while simultaneously being committed to fulfilling his own fantasies before ever being worried about defining his role in society.
How does this pertain to my music you ask?? Well first and foremost I feel as far as the youth of today is concerned there are a lot of clouded and shrouded minds that need healing. Music and how it relates to and grips the youth has been relegated to the equivalence of assembly line entertainment these days. Especially in Hip Hop!!
My hope is to contribute to being part of the solution through the music I create. I am in no way saying I'm the answer. I treat what I do in Hip Hop and how I do it with an intense blue collar work ethic and blue collar approach. I will never sit here and bowl anyone over with how special or how cool I think I am. For I'm a man and a stand up guy in every sense of the word so therefore I'll never sit here and talk about what I am because I'm not afraid to show who I am and hopefully my music speaks for itself. For I prefer to speak loudest within the confines and through my music in the name of being the change I want to see in the world.
In closing my music is best described as having the spirit of a man and the soul of a clown....
