URBAN - Hip Hop/Rap
ShutDemDown was started by Milwaukee producer Sam Winters in 2005. Tired of trying to find his way into the industry with his beats alone, he decided to go the independent route. He soon hooked up long time friend and collaborator, producer Dave Derrilykt. Derrliykt and Winters pooled together the best rappers they were producing and the ShutDemDown movement was born. Coming from diverse musical backgrounds, and each having their own distinctive style, the two producers form the backbone of ShuDemDown and give the music a sound that cannot be compared to anyone else.
The gasoline fueling the ShutDemDown fire is, of course, the MC's. This collection of 5 rappers are as dynamic and diverse as the production they spit over. Panic tha Fiyastarta, the gritty, larger than life MC/Singer, Nuncio tha Champ, Midwest-bred vato with the fiery flow, Face aka Jamaica, the truth from the mean streets of St. Louis, Blkman, Milwaukee's favorite hustlin' ladies man.
