[Video] Sean Christopher ‘Way Up’
Smooth, catchy and on-trend, Sean Christopher’s “Way Up” is everything you could ask for from an emerging hip-hop artist. Its visual adds another element to the track, defining Christopher as an artist with a current sound and a style from a time before him.
In a landscape where lo-fi bedroom rappers dominate the underground scene, taking on a more traditional hip-hop persona is a bit of an artistic risk. Despite this, Christopher has distinguished himself as a force to be reckoned with. Detroit-born and Atlanta-bred, he has mastered the art of implementing styles native to both cities in his music. The gritty nature of Detroit hip-hop shines in Christopher’s demeanor and presentation, evoking feelings of the city’s own J Dilla, and his sound has not so subtly been influenced by the success of Atlanta’s thriving trap seen.
“Way Up” is a testament to Christopher’s ability to camouflage into hip-hop’s ever- changing flavor while maintaining his own resolute artistry.
