In Case You’ve Been Missing…Shyheim
Where You Find Him: On Facebook and Twitter .
What You Might Know Him For And Why You Could’ve Cared: In his autobiography Decoded, Jay-Z mentioned his past admiration for Shyheim, as the then teenage MC flexed incredible rhymes and knowledge that were well beyond his age. The Brooklyn-born rapper, who grew up in Staten Island, spent his early childhood days alongside Wu-Tang Clan co-founder Ghostface Killah in the Stapleton Houses. While never sworn as an official member of the nine-men Clan, Shyheim’s refined rapping abilities, earned him support from Wu-Tang affiliates. This resulted in the 14-year-old MC’s sharp Virgin Records debut AKA the Rugged Child.
