Fashawn Champagne And Styrofoam Cups on 2LP
What did you do the year you turned 21? Hip-hop prodigy Fashawn earned a spot on the cover of XXL magazine, toured the world and built a rep as one of rap's new rising stars. Fashawn's debut album, Boys Meets World, was heralded by critics and fans alike as one of the best albums of 2009 for its gritty, street-wise and intelligent rhymes. Some even compared his introductory opus to Nas' brilliant Illmatic. It was enough for XXL to name Fashawn to its list of hip-hop's best freshman.
Fast forward to 2012 and over 200 shows and 2 mixtapes later Fashawn returned in full effect with his second release Champagne & Styrofoam Cups. Featuring Taylor Gangs Wiz Khalifa, MFN MR. eXquire, Kobe, K Young, Chevy Woods and more Champagne & Styrofoam Cups was regarded as one of the top releases of 2012. Working with Boy Meets World producer Exile, Fashawn also called upon hip hop's next generation of producers in DJ Dahi (Kendrick Lamar, Dom Kennedy), Rahki (Eminem, 50 Cent) and classic west coast producers Jake One and Hecktik.
