Philly’s finest Shon Goner dropped a hell of a debut album last August that I wrote about extensively. The project was full of club ready, r&b centric bangers that were catchy & innovative. Shon can sing, rap, and put together cohesive albums and creative singles. He’s been gone for a minute, working on some personal issues that he has every right to. I’m ecstatic Shon is back – and while perhaps cliche, he’s truly better than ever.
Like This encapsulates all the facets of Shon that have shone brighter and brighter in the coming years. His energetic and relentless flow is tighter, dispersed among mellow vocal interludes that slow down the up-tempo instrumental from Lunar Beats. Make no mistake, Like This is no ‘experimental’ track – there is catchiness & flavor that add instant replay value.

Bonus: A new EP is in the works. Shon – you’ve got my support, as always.
