MP3: C-Money feat. Kool John – “Shut It Down” 

Oakland’s Fresh Prince Drops the Bay’s Newest Party Anthem, Premiere via Complex



The Song:

Following the release of collabs with IAMSU! and Too $hort, Oakland rookie C-Money is ready to share a new slap featuring HBK Gang‘s Kool John. Premiered by Complex“Shut It Down” is further proof that C-Money has the playful charisma and signature Bay swing that his collaborator’s crew has brought to hip-hop’s forefront in the past few years. On “Shut It Down,” C-Money slips in one of the last great club anthems of 2014. As Complex states, “this is an essential West Coast party track. The beat has that classic Bay feel: heavy bass and hard 808’s, and both rappers know how to ride it perfectly.” Cuffing season be damned. “Shut It Down” has enough energy to turn the night up for months to come.

When C-Money spits, “Fresh Prince, baby, just like Will,” he couldn’t be more correct. “Shut It Down” is the type of booming party jam that can be played at house parties from the Bay to Bel-Air and beyond. Not many rappers can make the type of hook that gets lodged in your cerebral for days to come. On “Shut It Down,” C-Money accomplishes just that. “Shut It Down” is from C-Money’s forthcoming Just 4 You EP, which will be released December 9th.

C-Money Background:

With a smooth style and a jovial demeanor, Oakland California rapper, C-Money is easy to get along with. Part of what makes C’s music stand out is his careful balance of lyricism and style. “I have an East Coast flare with a West Coast style,” he describes, citing Wu-Tang Clan and Scarface as primary songwriting influences. “With the punchlines, a lot of artists are just gonna be limited to that. I’m a melodic artist, who rides that beat—so I get both of those. Plus, my sound is catchy.” Like Bay rappers are known for, C-Money’s slapping beats fit the strip club, but between his own catchy choruses, he stuffs the bars with honesty, wisdom, and life—unlike many of today’s rappers—things he’s actually lived.  Look out for C-Money’s debut EP, Just 4 You, featuring Iamsu! and Kool John of HBK Gang and more, available November 18th
