Born Malcolm Lee in the city of Richmond VA in 1986 on the sixth day of September. Born with the uniqueness of having twelve fingers his mom Belinda Lee bought him a piano at the age of two. By the age three Malcolm started raping lyrics to his favorite rap groups of that day and age. Rappers like Rakim, LL Cool J, Run DMC and the Fat Boys was a big influence in the young artist’s development of the hip hop culture. At ten Shy often wonder what it would be like if he could make a song. After taping his favorite rap songs off the radio he would sit and copy word for word the lyrics and rewrite them with his own flavor to it. When Malcolm was in seventh grade he began to write his own lyrics. After discovering that he had the talent to make music Malcolm wanted to create something big, something so unique that the world would be amazed. It took many trial and errors for Malcolm to find that perfect stage name. However, even though a stage name is defined as another identity Malcolm wanted to create something that was not just another identity but something that was realistic. Something different, something that no one has ever attempted. After creating this stage persona Malcolm must overcome the fact that he was shy. Being label a quiet boy throughout school and the workplace a light bulb seem to turn on in the mind of the then fourteen year old. A character played by Method Man in the movie Belly seems to strike a lot of interest in him. Not how the character was portrayed but his name, Shameek. So Malcolm decided to look up the words shy and meek. Shy meaning the lack of boldness and determination and meek meaning deficient in spirit and courage both describes Malcolm’s personality. So he decided to put the two words together but separate it with a period to present a stage that was two words that describes him but was the opposite of what he wanted accomplish. Shy.Meek was created ! “Rap name Quiet Boi Shy.Meek but u say and write it Shy.Meek because the Quiet Boi in my name is SILENT !” – Shy.Meek Shy.Meek ! Ceo, song writer, producer, audio engineer, music video editor and director, entrepreneur just name a few things this artist does.
