Biography

Shade Sheist is a man who really needs no introduction! This young recording artist and entrepreneur from Inglewood, California has already established himself as a true artist in the world of hip-hop and has only released his second solo album. Not to mention his first commercially released single “Where I Wanna Be” shot straight to #1 on the Billboard charts in 2001, setting new records and beginning a trend that would stretch into a whole new decade! One would think that an artist with achievements of this magnitude would be satisfied, but not Shade Sheist. “I haven’t done everything I want to do yet,” he says. “So I think it’s safe to say that yall haven’t seen anything yet!”

From his flow to the beats that he rhymes over, everything about rapper Shade Sheist screams “West Coast” in no uncertain terms. Sheist has, on occasion, worked with some East Coast rappers — including Fabolous, Ja Rule and Naughty by Nature members Treach and Kay Gee — but even so, Sheist is very much a product of the Southern California rap scene. Heavily influenced by West Coast gangsta rappers such as Snoop Doggy Dogg, DJ Quik, Warren G, Dr. Dre, and the late N.W.A. agitator Eazy-E, Sheist was born and raised in the Inglewood area. Anyone who forgets how long rap has been around need only think about how long Sheist has been alive; the Southern Californian was born in the early ’80s, which means that he was only a baby when trailblazing old-school East Coast rappers like Kurtis Blow, Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five, the Sugarhill Gang (as in “Rappers Delight”) and the Treacherous Three were at the height of their popularity.
