about

"Witness the Strength" is a collection of songs mostly recorded in 1991, when Shawn was only 14 years old. Two years before Shawn started releasing albums in his official catalogue, he was busy honing his skills by recording projects and demos at Hot Spots studio (owned by Ed Livernoche- Shawn's father.) Hot spots was one of Trenton NJ's only options for recording Hip-Hop in the late eighties and early nineties. The production was mostly by Shawn, who made the beats on the studio's Akai MPC60ii, with several beat contributions from Fatha Ramzee. These songs came after Shawn had already experienced six years plus of perils shopping demos in the then infant Hip-Hop market. The strong songwriting in "Witness the Strength" is indicative of what is to come later in Shawn's recording career, and exhibits Shawn's sense of rejection from not only the rap industry, but both his black and white peers. The themes in these early recording will blossom over another 20 plus years and become the foundation for the Shawn Lov catalogue.
