Sham Pain is the true definition of Swagg & a hard hitting hutsler. The buzz surrounding this album and the first single "African Butt" has catipulted this artist into the Rap and R&B world. Able to Rap and Sing equally as good is a great asset to have.
What do you call a man with too much Swag and a tight Fortune 500 business accumen? We call this man... Sham Pain!
Sham Pain hits the streets with a HOT CD filled up with 12 tracks which encompasses a plethora of topics and guaranteed club bangers mixed with clever punch lines and real life situations. Still unbelievably an unsigned artist, he has managed to set up his own Record Label - gRock Records, Film Company - gRock Films, Publishing Company - Sham Pizzall Music (ASCAP) and Music Production company - Beat U Up Ent.
The album "Billionaire Pimp" was recorded in Brooklyn, NY and Nassau, Bahamas and Sham Pain executes the East Coast swagger and Southern Hospitality treatment on every track successfully.
Born and raised in London (UK), he left the UK in 1999 and parted for Dallas (USA) where he says it was a big culture shock but showed him how to do many new things with a smile on his face.
Moving consistently between Dallas and Atlanta since 1999 has really shaped this hot independent unsigned artist. The Southern influence is apparrent and very raw with a twist, that twist being he is from the UK but sounds like he is from the deep South. He said ".. the Southern swagger has really rubbed off on me in a natural and good way, this mixed with my UK & Nigerian/African roots I just can't lose... I have an accent unto myself"
Every track on the album is a standout track and was written from the perspective it had to stand up by itself as a single release. All of the 12 tracks on the album are Club and Radio hits and fans will be spoilt for choice as too which ones they prefer.
Ladies will surely be drawn to Sham Pain especially after hearing the track "She Got Skillz & African Butt" where he acknowledges and proudly states what a woman should be and can be. "Naija Hustle" is a track where you will hear Sham Pain speak in English and Yourba. This track will put Nigeria on the map and start a new dance craze the, NAIJA HUSTLE!
"WHO B Dat" addresses other well known artists who have copied Sham Pain's style and lyrics and have not credited him with the original idea. He says all proof has been documented with ASCAP publishing as to when he wrote the tracks as to when they were released and it is apparent these other tracks by these artists are direct copies and came out after hearing his versions.
The track "Good Pussy" was added to the album as a bonus track as it has got so much attention from DJs and Club Goers alike. When this track hits the club, people go WILD!
As a singer/songwriter it is evident that Sham Pain will break new grounds. Sham Pain went all out on this album speaking a lot of truths on very different topics. After hearing the album it will surprise many how diverse Sham Pain's lyrical content and acute delivery is, he is on point on every track. Not afraid to touch sensitive matters many have steered away from or felt uneasy to display that much "heart" on a track, Sham Pain digs deep inside himself and spits out fire!
Sham Pain added "... It is clear my accent has "slightly" changed living in the USA for so long, but I made sure that I also wrote about UK situations, life and locations on several tracks."
Sham Pain has big plans for his music career and even bigger plans for gRock Records, he is running fast so you better run with him or get out of his way. He has been through a lot of bad times and has still managed to always come out on top much to the dismay of an arrogant and ignorant system that surrounds him and this is why he is the P.I.M.P (Positive In My Perspective).
