Shawn J Period – Production Spotlight

Shawn J Period was a dope mid-to-late 90s producer that hooked up beats for The Artifacts, Bush Babees, Mad Skillz, Mos Def, Black Star, J-Treds, etc. He became a born-again christian right around the turn of the century, and shortly thereafter, he disappeared from the hip hop scene. Here’s a two volume set of tracks that he produced between the years of 1996 and 1999. He also handled production for his group “Down South” between the years of 1994 and 1995, so I’m including a link for their “Lost In Brooklyn” LP. Be aware that his Down South era production style is drastically different from the sound that he provided between the years of 1996 and 1999.
