From the Hip Hop Album…
Shut Up is an expression of emotions and feelings while battling life’s obstacles.
Back in 2015, Brittany Chrishawn went through a lot of tough times with her family. Her mother and father both got locked up, and it put Brittany under emotional and economic strain. So, Shut Up is an introspective narrative of Brittany Chrishawn’s experience at that time. In this song, she chides and challenges herself to overcome emotions and defeat life’s obstacles.
Originally, Moor iLL wrote a hook intending to finish the song, but writer’s block got the best of him.
About 2 years later, Moor iLL and Brittany Chrishawn were searching for a new beat together. While going through Moor iLL’s email, they stumbled across this instrumental. Immediately Brittany was inspired and began to vent her story through song. Moor iLL was moved by her creative expressions and added a piece of his own story in the second verse.
