MC Shan

I guess yall know about the legendary MC Shan…

MC Shan (Shawn Moltke) is a rapper and producer from Queensbridge, NY.

He is the cousin from Marley Marl (DJ and Producer) and was member of the famous Juice Crew along with Marley Marl, Mr Magic, Roxanne Shante, Kool G. Rap & DJ Polo, Craig G., Big Daddy Kane, Masta Ace, Biz Markie, MC Percy (Intelligent Hoodlum, Tragedy Khadafi) and don't forget about TJ Swan, the Genius (GZA) and Grand Daddy I.U. They released many dope records on the label Cold Chillin'...

Shan dissed LL Cool J on "Beat Biter" for stealing the Beat from "Marley Marl Scratch" for his "Rock The Bells". Another historic moment was the beef between the Juice Crew and Boogie Down Productions that started with the track "The Bridge"...

In the mid 90s (could be ’96 based on the run out groove etchings) he released a promo EP pressed in very limited quantities on MC Shan Music Inc. This EP contains the 5 tracks: "To Thy Be Done (Feat. Kork Screw)", "Get Your Groove On", "Key To Lock", "Woman Of The Decade (Feat. Snow, Muriel Fowler, Lady Ann)" and "6 Ft. Underground". For me it's all about "6 Ft. Underground" on this wax, followed by "Key To Lock"! The whole EP is produced by Shan himself togehter with MIT (?).

Key To Lock
