Shawn Lee - Monkey Boy

Shawn Lee
Monkey Boy
We Love You

In today’s hip-hop world of scrubs and thongs, not enough attention is focused on the roots of those soulful samples. It would seem that the basis of the funk and soul will forever be relegated to the 70s and early 80s. But there are a few artists who are paying their respects to the past while moving musically forward. Shawn Lee is one such soul brother whose innovative style recalls that forgone funk with the added influences of fellow soulster Jeff Buckley. Though he may not garner a huge mainstream following, he just may be laying down tracks for future music scavengers.
