Buddha Shawty is the latest artist to show what the Midwest is really about when it comes to music. Buddha Shawty just released the melodic rnb single Sum 4 U this month. The track produced by 7i7 Kwony, has a smooth and calm beat paired with Buddha’s effortless flow. Buddha’s voice floats as he pours his emotion-filled lyrics all over the track. Although a simple arrangement, the song has a chant-like hook you can’t help but get stuck in your head.
Emerging from Waukegan, a city in the suburb of Lake County Buddha Shawty shows off his Midwest influence throughout his music. With a clever and stylish delivery, he creates music that has no boundaries. Since 2016 he’s released several singles all of which show different sides of his artistry. Heavily influenced by rap legends like MF DOOM, Kanye West & Three 6 Mafia Buddha combines raw lyricism with imaginative sounds.
