Shawn Childs was born & raised in Compton, California. Music was apart of him from a very young age. His older brother & five uncles gave him a heavy dose of N.W.A., Tribe Called Quest,Gangstarr,Pete Rock & CL Smooth,Getto Boys,Anita Baker, Harry Nilson,etc. Basketball would influence his music more than those artist his family constantly played. Shawn received a basketball scholarship sending him to the EastCoast. While there he was influenced by the lyricism of the east & the roots of hip gop. After a two year stint Shawn Transferred to a College in the South. While there the South was topping the charts & for three years he studied & loved the sound that had tooking over Hip Hop.After Graduating he was faced with his first major decisions. Go back to a crime infested Compton to pursue his music or take a contract to play overseas in Germany. Going against his heart he took the later. What he was suprise to find in Germany was Hip Hop. Now realizing the influence his first love had not only in all coast of the United States but nationally he decided to go back home to Compton & start his career in music. These travels have influenced & created a sound for Shawn Childs that sets him apart from other artist!
