In a world where the mantra of Emcees is murder, death, kill, its refreshing that a budding artist is more interested in uplifting the youths with his lyrical content which encourages them to exert their full potential.
Young Sha is from the dirty South and amidst claims he could get down with the best of them, I’m convinced that is not his mission. He was born in Augusta, Georgia and has been in l...ove with music since the age of seven. His taste in music is impressive as he lists many of the greats as his inspiration. He loves the stylings of Dizzy Gilespe, Ella Fitzgerald, Al Green and Otis Reading just to name a few. Young Sha has listened to the intricacies of the tones, beats and rhythms of past music legends and has developed his own unique style.
Young Sha, born Brandon Johnson, has thought quite deeply of the meaning of his alias which makes quite a difference in this industry. Sha’-Phan was a biblical scribe in the old testament who translated and brought the law to the king. And Young Sha’s ode is to bring new meaning into this industry; teach the youths that they could get down but in a positive way.
He is quite accomplished and you could see his tentative but strong steps toward his ultimate goal. Sha’-phan of K.I.C.K Ent. is signed with the record label GRITTYLYF and is the first artist to sign with their Southern Division (GRITTYLYF SOUTH). He has performed at numerous venues and has done over 25 shows in Augusta, Georgia including Soul on Ice and Cocktails Tuesdays.
Born on the 29th of December, the 26 year old has already made a stamp on this industry by releasing an album online (Da’ Real Trunk Muzik) and a very well received mixtape (Still Waters).
Young Sha knows the way into this business is through self-marketing and showing that going the extra mile is a high priority. He has over 15 professionally recorded songs which you can either listen to on YouTube or purchase on his website www.youngsha.com.
Why is Young Sha rated as the next best thing? Because he has what it takes and he’s letting you know. That’s why!
