Shaheen is an Iranian-American hip-hop artist from Connecticut. Shaheen fell in love with Hip Hop music at a young age when a friend introduced him to Eminem, T.I Fort Minor, and Lupe Fiasco. At the age of 15, Shaheen began writing lyrics and started recording music shortly after, spending many years after school and college classes practicing and developing his skill. Noticing the lack of good representation of the Iranian community, Shaheen aims to use musical talent to combat negative Middle-Eastern stereotypes. There is a lot of social commentary in his music as well, that goes beyond racism. Through his music, he highlights some of the depression and mental health issues he faced growing up, and is motivated to help elevate people and encourage people to commit to becoming the strongest versions of themselves.
