The Unauthorized Biography Series by Shaun Boothe

Shaun Boothe stands at the intersection of music, history, and education as an acclaimed hip-hop artist, TEDx speaker, and the mastermind behind ‘The Unauthorized Biography Series‘. This innovative musical project brings to life the narratives of global cultural luminaries through biographical rap songs, offering a novel way of exploring history via the medium of hip-hop.

Each chapter in the series focuses on the legacy of an influential cultural icon in a documentary-style music video. Featured legends include Bob Marley, Muhammad Ali, Jimi Hendrix, James Brown, Barack Obama/MLK Jr., Oprah, Bruce Lee, Tupac, Nelson Mandela and more. 

After a decade-long journey in the music industry, during which he shared the stage with titans such as Snoop Dogg, Lauryn Hill, and Kendrick Lamar, Shaun felt the call to a more meaningful path. This led him to the educational sector, where he recognized the potential of his Unauthorized Biography Series and his eloquent speaking skills as influential tools to inspire and motivate others to unlock their potential.

This new venture quickly evolved into a flourishing international career, with Shaun engaging audiences in middle schools, high schools, college campuses, and performing arts centers through his inspirational talks and performances.

Shaun’s adaptability shines as he tailors his programs to various needs, such as the Women’s Empowerment presentation, which features performances of biographies of influential women like Serena Williams, Oprah Winfrey, and Malala Yousafzai.
In addition to his website and profile here, you can also find Shaun on Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Spotify.
