Shade Sheist is a man who really needs no introduction! This young 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!" Shade Sheist has recorded with the industry’s best including: Dr. Dre, Timbaland, Dj Quik, Teddy Riley, Mariah Carey, Bone Thugs n Harmony and so many more. Some of Shade's notable musical acheivements include songs on “The Fast and The Furious,” "The Wash" and “Dark Angel” motion picture / television soundtracks, as well as the “True Crime: Streets of L.A.” and “25 to Life” videogame soundtracks. Once Shade has your attention he intends to keep it. His charm and the fact that he is so well spoken are just a few of the other great qualities that make Shade Sheist an artist to witness.
