#TBT: Ball Greezy – Shone

by .

PRODUCER: Gorilla Tek
YEAR: 2008

Miami has always had a huge step in Southern Rap culture. But it seems as the early 2000’s were the rebirth of the golden ages. As we have shown and proved our fanatic outlook on the jook era, this week we will continue on that streak, reviving Ball Greezy’s radio hit “Shone”. This was the time in music where party goers and fans could just vibe and have a good time with the trippy or heavy drugs that are common today. Ball Greezy was the type of artist who not only told stories of his gritty environment, but he also displayed hope in party tracks. Although he was in the streets, he showed that there was always a time to have fun with your crew and a lady friend or two.

A track that was produced by Gorilla Tek, originally for a bigger unnamed artist, was practically hijacked by Ball Greezy because of his fast turnaround and even faster reception from listeners. The same night that he recorded “Shone”, Ball Greezy took the unmixed copy to the strip club, where it became an instant smash before the quality was even perfected. Once it was ready for airwaves, there was no stopping it. The single gained backing from major artists, including Rick Ross, who like usual went on to create a remix for the hit.

As most people could barely grab the correct definition of the trendy word, Ball Greezy helped us out in a 2008 interview: “Shone’ for the people who don’t know is a good girl that parties hard, if you do for your kids and you do for yourself when you come out in the streets, you’re a shone and that’s my definition of a shone, so if you feel a certain way you shouldn’t feel bad when someone calls you a shone just put a little more twist in your walk and let them know your shoning”

Although Ball Greezy did not follow up with another success venture as that of “Shone”, his is definitely a Florida favorite and shake junt legend.
