Shaun Boothe: The Unauthorized Biography Series

"The power of hip-hop Is In the stories we choose to tell. Our stories can either build us up or tear us down" - Shaun Boothe

Shaun Boothe is an award-winning hip-hop artist, TEDx speaker and creator of'The Unauthorized Biography Serles'.

The Unauthorized Biography Series is a critically acclaimed musical project that celebrates the world's greatest cultural icons through biographical raps 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 All, Serena Williams, Malala Yousafzai, Terry Fox, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and more. Getting praise from the families of many of the icons in his series - performing for
MLK, III himself - and a feature on, 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.
