The rapper from Florida known as Shawn Lewis has released his latest single, “Spend a Lot of Money.” The single is the prominent front-running hit from his up-and-coming mixtape, “Life Overseas.” The single has been proudly published as an independent underground rap release without censorship or interference from the corporate music industry. Rattling and humming, bumping and pounding, “Spend a Lot of Money” is the latest reason that fans of hip hop and rap need to be paying close attention to the recent work of Shawn Lewis.
Rapper Lewis cites as main artistic influences such legends of the mic as Nas, the Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, and Eminem, as well as James Brown, Michael Jackson, and Jimi Hendrix. His own style takes the best qualities of these performers and creates a new blend from them which is fresh and new, sharp and direct. Unafraid to say exactly what's on his mind, Shawn Lewis' lines and rhymes aren't just words thrown together with an 'explicit language' sticker on them for show; his rap is premeditated, unadulterated, and ready to take him to the big time.
Asked to describe his start in rap, Shawn Lewis writes, “I always listened to music as a kid. It's just in my blood.”
“Spend a Lot of Money” was selected by Next Hit Record for inclusion on a mixtape series less than one week after its initial debut. While the attention of his fans is being drawn mostly toward this new single, which becomes publicly available 7 January 2015, Lewis is actually gearing up to release his “Life Overseas” mixtape in short time. Hence, “Spend a Lot of Money” features the same cover art which adorns his upcoming LP.
Writing of the themes of his impending mixtape release, Lewis comments that his album's message is “That anything is possible. Work hard and stay consistent, and most importantly, have fun.”
Lewis describes himself as “a laid-back, down-to-earth person, humble and driven by doing better in life or whatever I am doing. All it takes is one opportunity for me to show what I can do, and I can take this industry by storm.”
“Spend a Lot of Money” by Shawn Lewis is available online worldwide. Watch also for his up-and-coming mixtape, “Life Overseas,” due out soon.
