From a very young age, Shane Hamlet had a consistent influence of musical talent around him. The son and nephew of two of the best underground disc jockeys in the 90's, it was difficult to imagine another career path for him to take. Born and raised in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn, New York and a product of a single parent home, Shane gets his soulful vibe from his mother and grandmother, both of whom are big fans of the early R&B and jazz eras. In high school, he DJ'd several house and backyard parties throughout Brooklyn as DJ Shane The Great, which continued til about halfway through his freshman year in college in which he found his calling as an emcee . You can catch him blazing a stage near you soon .
