Notes first listen to hip hop, he knew he was going to make his mark in the game of hip hop, pop, and R&B. Shawn expressed the freedom he has as a producer through music. In time, Shawn was introduced to making beats by a long time friend Phill Good Skillz former Outsidaz in house Producer. Then C Notes knew then he was going to be successful at music.
