It's never too long between Shawn Harris releases. He followed up his September mixtape Lafré Against The World: Chapter 1 by releasing "Mafioso" earlier this month. The Minneapolis rapper continues his strong late-year push with "Lonesome," released this glorious Friday in an HNHH premiere.

Shawn Harris, the Minneapolis rapper formerly known as Nikko Lafré, is back for the first time since his September mixtape, Lafré Against the World: Chapter 1. His new track, "Mafioso," finds him alone with his own drunken thoughts late at night. He calls out to a girl from his past, rapping, "So tell me do you love me like you used to," knowing that he doesn't have the same love to give, as his priorities these days are the money and the hedonistic lifestyle that comes with it.

It seems like Shawn Harris has been on the precipice of "album mode" for a good year now, but for real guys, the album is actually coming soon. In the meantime he continues to feed the streets with leaks that may or may not end up on LAFRE.

Shawn Harris is unrelenting. The dude just dropped two new records late last night/early this morning, yet he's sent through a third one for us to premiere this afternoon. The first two joints, one a tribute to Prince titled "Uptown" and the other "612," are a bit more relaxed and sombre in sound.

Shawn Harris celebrated #PrinceDay by releasing two Prince odes late last night: "Uptown" and "612." "612" doubles as an ode to Prince and an ode to Harris' hometown of Minneapolis. The 612!! "I'm bout to purple rain on this city, rest in peace that nigga Prince," he croons.

Minneapolis native Shawn Harris has a habit of releasing songs in twos. Last month he released "22 Questions" and "Rich Before Rap" at the same damn time.

Minneapolis representative, Shawn Harris, hasn't dropped a project for over a year now, since the stand-out Troubled Soul: Blame the City, which ushered in a new sound and direction for the artist.

Shawn Harris is making a splash today, as he prepares fans for his highly anticipated album LAFRE. Dude has been grinding since he released Troubled Soul last year, refining his direction and poising himself for a mainstream takeover, all the while, putting on for his city of Minneapolis.

Shawn Harris continues his consistent year by dropping a woozy, after-hours joint titled "6 on 4's." The track is suited for the come down, but it's also a low-key banger, especially when Harris ups his energy and gets extra ruthless on the hook.  The song focuses on how Harris' lifestyle and quickly accumulating riches have led to liaisons with conniving females. Though he's learned to be wary of women who approach him out of nowhere, "6 on 4's" is a sexy, R&B-tinged jam that should set an intimate mood in the club.

Shawn Harris is getting ready to release his Lafré project, and so far, we've heard quite a few records from the project. The rapper has been dropping new tracks at an enviable pace, often putting out 3 or 4 songs at a time, and most recently sharing the confident "Best Rapper Alive". He's apparently recorded about 60 songs in advance of the project, and is still deciding what exactly will make the cut.

Lastly, to round up his three releases tonight, Shawn Harris decides to liberate the new song “Best Rapper Alive,” which is not to be confused with Lil Wayne’s famous catch phrase either (even though he mentions it during this track). With his patience short, Shawn has no time to deal with these niggas in the game, and boasts about his big pockets and lavish lifestyle, while referencing some bosses like Hov & Tip in the process. The gritty, money-gettin’ anthem will see life on his upcoming project, Lafre, which is coming soon.

As “If I Could” wasn’t enough for you, Shawn Harris decided to come through and unleash a second song for us tonight called “Eyes On Me," which again we have the pleasure of premiering for y'all.

Another of the four tracks Shawn Harris (formerly Nikko Lafré), “Late Night In Texas (Die Someday)” is a heartfelt cut. It will also appear on his upcoming LAFRÉ project, and combined with “Somewhere In LA,” which we shared early this morning, the project is shaping up nicely.

We're doing our best to keep up with Shawn Harris (FKA Nikko Lafré) tonight, as the Minneapolis rapper has dropped off four tracks off his upcoming LAFRÉ project. Well, they're demo tracks, though they sound official enough to us.

Shawn Harris, the artist who came to prominence under the name Nikko Lafré, decided to sneak up on us with a batch of new tunes tonight -- four in total, each off his upcoming project, LAFRÉ. Well, they're demos, but these are all quality recordings, and it's exciting to think that the final LAFRÉ versions might sound even better. "Somewhere in LA" is one that's sounding particularly hot, and it features Portland singer TYuS -- who's definitely one to look out for.

Shawn Harris is getting ready to release his full length project, LAFRÉ, later this year, and as a warm-up for the project, he's shared a few demo versions of the songs slated for the effort. "Year Of LAFRÉ" is among them, and off the bat, it sounds like something of an intro, with Harris delivering a confessional verse before the beat fades out, and another one enters, and introduces a braggier, catchier record.

Shawn Harris has all the mood-setting music you'll need this week, after dropping off two smooth records. Along with "Girl From Miami," Shawn comes through with the souled out "That Feelin."

Shawn Harris is making quite the return this afternoon, just in time for your Friday night plans, but an hour too late to make it onto our Staff Picks playlist. He's giving us two new records, which he's sent over live from the studio. The rapper is exploring the singing lane more and more lately, as is evident on "Girl From Miami," but even so, he makes sure to give us some hard-hitting bars before the song is done.

Shawn Harris has been leaning into a more R&B-influenced sound on his last few records, and his latest track "Dance," is no exception. The record begins with a driving drum beat that accents some cloudy synths, while Harris pushes his melodies forward, following the lead of the rhythm before pulling the percussion entirely on the hook, as a Kanye-esque auto-tuned distortion enters as a backing vocal.
