Still working on that hot first release.



Nowadays it's increasingly hard to come out of Southern, California and get substantial buzz without being linked to the storied N.W.A. family tree (Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, etc.) But San Diego, California's Def Shon, has managed to make quite a name for himself, carving his own niche in Cali's dense crop of unsigned talent.

Now poised as the New West's next to blow, 28 year-old Def Shon first made his presence known in Crawford High School. He relentlessly hit up talent shows around the region as well as in Inland Empire under the direction of his Aunt's management Mecca One. After leaving Mecca One to try to make it own his own imprint Hypebomb Productions his career took off.

His latest, a joint collaboration with his older cousin/producer Mr. Slick, finds Def Shon's brand of hip hop refreshing to the ear. Over the heavy synths of "Incredable" Def Shon spit with ferocity of a rap veteran: "I like Ice but I'm really not about the bling.../ I'd rather grab a chick and make her kitty cat sing/ and if you think I'm trickin',/cluck head you must be trippin'/dollars stay in my pocket, sorry I don't pay for chicken."

Def Shon proves that he doesn't have to be a gangster to make noise on the wild west. A force to be reckin' with.
