Shaun Johnson


It has become apparent that there is a great divide in the music industry which separates those artists who will enjoy longevity in the business from those whose success will prove to be short lived. In today’s fast paced, instantly gratified, information super-highway driven world, hip-hop is no exception. As well as remarkably talented, you must be determined, dedicated, and infused with a sense of purpose and personal responsibility that stems from something more than just the need to get paid in order for you to attain that elusive level known as superstardom and stay on top. Shaun Johnson is a rare individual who embodies both the talent and focus to reach the top of the pile and remain there indefinitely. His unwavering commitment to excellence stems from learning life’s lessons the hard way and using that knowledge to make better decisions. A talented audio engineer, lyricist, performer, and song writer; Shaun was attracted to poetry at an early age which eventually lead him to become a lyricist. He released his music via the internet spending seemingly endless hours promoting his material and his musical passion is reflected in every performance. Shaun has no intentions of slowing down either. He is humble and appreciative of all the support and also recognizes that ultimately the success of his career depends on his own commitment to perseverance. Shaun is the definition of a true new millennium hip-hop entrepreneur, a gifted poet turned MC waiting patiently, but not idly, for his moment to shine.
