2023 KEYNOTES

Shaun Boothe

Award-Winning Hip-Hop Artist, TEDx Speaker, and Creator of The Unauthorized Biography Series

The Unauthorized Biography Series is a critically-acclaimed project that celebrates the world’s greatest cultural icons through biographical rap songs – re-packaging history through hip-hop. Each chapter of the series captures the legacy of an influential iconic figure in a documentary-style music video. Featured artists include Bob Marley, Muhammad Ali, Malala Yousafzai, Terry Fox, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Oprah Winfrey, Barack Obama, and more. Getting media hits from top publications and shout-outs from the artists themselves, it’s clear that Shaun’s making waves and getting the attention of the right people.

After spending 10+ years in the music industry, sharing stages with the likes of Snoop Dogg, Lauryn Hill, and Kendrick Lamar, a search for a more purposeful path led Shaun to the lecture circuit. It was here where he discovered how his Unauthorized Biography Series, combined with his passion for public speaking, could be used as a powerful tool to both entertain and inspire others to achieve their own greatness. A few short years later, and this new direction has grown into a thriving international career as an inspirational speaker and performing artist in middle schools, high schools, college campuses, corporations, associations, and performing arts centres alike.
