Shaun Boothe


Shaun Boothe is an award winning hip hop artist, TEDx speaker and creator of ‘The Unauthorized Biography Series’.

The Unauthorized Biography Series is a critically acclaimed musical project that celebrates the world’s greatest cultural icons through biographical rap songs – Repackaging History through Hip Hop.

Each chapter of the series captures the legacy of an influential iconic figure in a documentary-style music video. Icons featured in the series include Bob Marley, Muhammad Ali, MLK Jr./Obama, Bruce Lee, Oprah, Tupac, Terry Fox, Nelson Mandela and more. Getting blog love from Kanye West and tweets from Diddy himself — Boothe’s sixth icon in his series — it’s clear that he’s getting the attention of the right people.

In an industry where your live show can make you or break you, Shaun Boothe is renowned for his conceptual and highly interactive performances – many of which have graced the opening stages of concerts for multi-platinum artists, including Nas, Lauryn Hill, Talib Kweli, and Snoop Dogg.

Building on the success of the Bio Series, Shaun’s striking skills as an orator have helped him to break new grounds as a lecturer across campuses nationwide. His highly entertaining Live Your Legacy Speaker Series uses his bio videos to embark on a performance/lecture style journey discussing issues of identity/diversity, character, media, life skills, and the importance of living a legacy.
