³With this whole album, I¹m representing my swag,² says Sean P, who rose to prominence as one-half of the YoungBloodZ, whose hits ³Damn!,² ³Presidential² and ³85² established them as the hottest rap duo from Atlanta this side of OutKast. ³I¹ve got the same swag that I¹ve had with the YoungBloodZ, but now I¹m an individual. J Bo was more of the hardcore side and I was more of the player that had a little swag with it. Now I¹m able to put my swag all the way out there and the folks that dig my swag will be able to get everything. The lead single from the album, ³Everywhere We Go², was produced by Miami based hit-makers, Cool & Dre and features Terror Squad star, DJ Khaled. Another track on the album, already enjoying burn on radio, is Sean P¹s boast-heavy, club-ready ³U Ain¹t Know,² which was produced by and features T-Pain and nods to the Audio 2 classic ³Top Billin¹.² ³It just had that old school feel,² Sean P says. ³That¹s what popped in my head with that song. I flipped it around a little bit. Elsewhere, Sean P sums up his aura on the bass-heavy ³Swag,² establishes his solo status on ³Watch Me Do My Thang² and flexes his storytelling abilities on the sly ³U See It,² a detailed breakdown of some of the women he¹s met while traveling the globe.
Jazze Pha and Scott Storch are among the high-powered producers working on Sean P¹s album, but he¹s also making a point to allow promising beat smiths such as Raw Beats an opportunity to shine throughout the high-energy collection. That open-mindedness extends to his music-making outlook. ³I like to have a good time,² he says. ³I¹m a cool, laid-back cat. That¹s why when you hear me, I¹m not talking about a whole lot of shooting --em up and all that.
I try to just bring the fun back to the music. I like music that makes you feel good and want to do your little dance. Since he met YoungBloodZ partner-in-rhyme J Bo in middle school, Sean P¹s priority has always been making feel-good music. He prefers not to dwell on his past -- which includes a string of evictions as a child and a cursory relationship with his father. It¹s a testament to Sean P¹s positive outlook on life and just how much he appreciates all he has accomplished -- including a gold album for the YoungBloodz¹s 2003 release, Drankin¹ Patnaz -- that his music promotes enjoying yourself. I dont make no sad songs that folk are going to cry over,² he says.
³I ain¹t with all that. I can do that at the house. When I go to the studio, I want the music to be loud, bumping and jumping all over the place.² No wonder he¹s in high demand. Read more on Last.fm.
