Shawn M. was born Shawn Anthony Munoz and raised by his mother and step-father Maria and Mike Kaslon in Vineland NJ. Born in 1992 he is the second youngest out of his siblings. Through out his child hood he was surrounded by narcotics, addiction and drug raids. He managed to rise above the negativity and keep a level head. He is the only one of his brothers and sisters to never sell or partake in drugs. Growing up seeing all this is what gave him the stories he uses to capture the listener today. In 2014 he started Runaway Records and released two projects, “The Prelude” and “New Religion”. His work has been recognized and supported by blogs such as InFlexWeTrust, TheSource, AllHipHop and ItsBizkit.
