Highways and Pastimes Part II
An album conceived in 2013 that wouldn’t be heard by the general public until 2016 has become a 3 part personal look into SHNEAKY’s past that won’t be fully realized until late 2018. This project examines the way SHNEAKY passed his time and the highways that took him to places he never thought he would go. This second installment of the “Highways and Pastimes” trilogy is a throwback in sound and content. Fully embracing the boom bap era and telling the story of the beginning of the end.
An album conceived in 2013 that wouldn’t be heard by the general public until 2016 has become a 3 part personal look into SHNEAKY’s past, the way he passed his time, and the highways that took him to places he never thought he would go. This release is the first installment on SHNEAKY’s musical adventure of self discovery as he searches for ways to implement positive change in himself and his community while struggling to unlearn false truths.
Highways & Pastimes Part I
Mark Of A Beast
Mark Of A Beast is a follow up E.P. made of Beats and Concepts that had been brewing during the Inevitable and Collaboration sessions. This release was rushed to be completed before SHNEAKY left L.A. to UC San Diego. It is Experimental, New, Different, and RAW. Mark Of A Beast was engineered, mixed, and mastered mostly by SHNEAKY himself, and plays off familiar concepts of right and wrong, good versus evil, spirituality, and the roll perception plays in demonizing aspects of our society while glorifying others. In a time where we are losing touch with our animal instincts; BEAST MODE is a state that goes above and beyond our misconceptions of our human animal potential. Taking circumstances and rising above them, pushing your body to extremes to accomplish your goals, knowing when to chill, when to let loose, or when to go hard, are all traits of a BEAST. Above all, a BEAST is one who deals with all the things life throws, while staying committed to who they are and their goals.
Collaboration: How We Live, Learn, and, Create
Shneaky’s debut album, “Collaboration: How We Live Learn and Create” is the latest collection of his work. It is the next stage of musicianship from his prior releases “Strictly Sinatra” and “Inevitable E.P.” as SHNEAKY masterminds a diverse ensemble of musicians, resulting in a crossbreed of styles and genres. The lyrical content consists of verses created with and without the band, the topics range the usual suspects of love, politics, and questioning the unknown.

The Inevitable EP
Shneaky teamed up with producer Richie(jamz) and phenom MC Five82six for this one of a kind mixtape. Funky, hard hitting beats are met with a barrage of rhymes as the rapping duo use their contrasting styles to bring a fresh sound all their own. With tracks like “Dare 2 Dream ft. DamonReel” and “Everything is Cool” a message of inspiration and hope are conveyed while the crude yet playful tracks “Lust” and “F.A.B.” will push boundaries of a listener’s comfort zone.

Shneaky’s Strictly Sinatra
This special release features a collection of fresh beats produced by Richie[Jamz].
Honest. Raw. Deep. Shneaky’s rhymes tell stories of love, hate, and indifference as sounds from a classic era meet the latest in modern day hip hop.
