Shynin Armour-The Ill militant

Crew: Black Army Movement [BAM]

Shynin Armour was born in Meadowlands, Soweto (South Africa) and started following the Hip Hop path during the mid 90’s and since he’s been evolving and innovatively growing himself to be a better and wiser songwriter/ activist and performer to date. Taking from influences of the early 90’s that have paved and groomed the way of life of which Hip Hop was/is and blending it with the present lifestyle we currently living.

He first showed up on the scene around 2003 at Dungeon Shack, he started touring around on Sundays in Soweto trying to get a platform on similar shows like Splash Jam, Slughuise and Battle Ground which at that time were dominant shows with a platform for artists to test their skills and grow a market for there music. Then in 2005 he and friends/mc’s started a family called Black Army Movement (BAM) with Dynamic, Likwidy and OBK who have worked hard to get there performances recognized without even dropping an album till this day.

In 2007 he dropped his first segment, Rong 1//3 off the Trilogy Rong Ruff & Rugged, a conceptualized album that is designed to play out in a space of 4years, so Hip Hop heads and listeners could grow to love the music he would soon be releasing in the future years (The album was produced by Dynamic and Likwidy + Xzodia on the Epic Artworks)…

In late 2009 He began the construction of the Sequel to Rong 1//3 that took him a year and a half to compile into something meaningful, fresh and creatively compiled in a sneaky but slick track listing with hidden tracks almost every 2nd song. The Ruff 2//3 sequel was then released during the first half of the year 2010 on the 27th April at the biggest annual Hip Hop show in South Africa called Back2daCity. The album featured the likes of Black Army Movement (on most of the production and tracks), P2daoh and Appoliyon (feature on the Hidden Tracks they produced) and Xzodia on the outro skit and the Artwork once again…

Its 2011 and the final segment of the Trilogy Rugged 3//3 is due for release April 27th 2011 at Back2daCity and will be distributed digitally by Def Jam Island on I-Tunes, Amazon and altot more digital stores across the world… Get ready for the RUGGED 3//3 era
