Shakezpeare born Aaron Todd from Coventry City in West Midlands of the Uk is an artist like no other, with his childhood being something straight out of a Donald Goines book his straight to the point aggressive style of writing and delivering packs a punch. A colourful past lead Shakezpeare to sever very lengthy prison sentences the longest being 12 years but now after being free for 10 years and living on the right side of law fully focused on his music and performing he uses these platforms to exorcise all his demons “which is evident once you witness Shakespeare live.” As far as live performances stand Shakezpeare stands shoulder to shoulder with the best of them and has been for a number of years working his way though the underground scene putting in performances all over the UK and Europe as an opening act for some of hip hops greatest acts such as GZA, Killah Priest and Dom Pachino Wu tang Clan, Mobb Deeps Havoc Big Noyd & DJ L.E.S, Sugar Hill gang, Melle Mel, Smif N Wessun, Kool G Rap, Skinnyman, Rodney P, Onyx to name a few.
Musically Shakezpeare has released 14 projects to date dating back to 2011 – 2018 when he released his self produced studio album Troubled which Shakezpeare takes us deeper into the mind of a troubled soul, its battles and daily struggles to conquer and maintain dominance over its demons. On this album Shakezpeare still holds no punches with his deliberately blunt to the point style of writing, however on this album the truth hits hard and cuts deeper than ever before. Over the years Shakezpeare has worked with many producers and artists 2016 released a 5 track E.P with Detroit producer Bronze nazareth but mostly Shakezpeare worked with Manchester producer Dr G releasing so far together 5 projects 2 singles with features from Ras Kass and Big Noyd.
“This performer, this aggressive wordsmith works around the clock and always delivers.”
