THE UNAUTHORIZED BIOGRAPHY SERIES feat. 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, Jimi Hendrix, James Brown, MLK Jr./Obama, Oprah, Tupac, Bruce Lee, Terry Fox, Nelson Mandela and more.
Getting blog love from Kanye, tweets from Diddy himself – Boothe’s sixth icon in his series – and a feature on Forbes.com, it’s clear that he’s getting the attention of the right people.
After spending 10+ years in the music industry, sharing stages with the likes of Snoop Dogg, Lauryn Hill and Kendrick Lamar, a search for a more purposeful path led Shaun to the education market. It was here where he discovered how his Unauthorized Biography Series, combined with his passion for speaking, could be used as a powerful tool to both entertain and inspire others to achieve their own greatness.
A few short years later, this new direction has grown into a thriving international career as an inspirational speaker and performing artist in middle schools, high schools, college campuses and performing arts centers alike.
