Shakka Hasberry / Bio

As a performing artist, Shakka Hasberry in past seasons has graced the stage with national recording artists like COMMON, and The Nappy Roots. He has also achieved international write-ups on sites like eurweb.com and okayplayer.com. His single ‘Rise & Shine’ can be heard weekly on Clear Station’s 1100AM. His song ‘Bring It Back’ was placed on a 2009 double-disc tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King entitled Dream On... The Dream Continues. He is currently booking his feature shows from the east coast, midwest, and the south for the following quarters while he completes some collaborative works with established artists around the country. To all of which will present in one of the upcoming quarterly events called Messengers’ Lounge Block Party. Retiring his intermediate demo quality mix-tape ‘The Dime-bag of Soul’, Shakka has finally released a single that introduces an evolution in his sound…an integrity of message music that is absolute in every way.

Last year, Shakka's band The Black Phoenix featured in The Crooked River Groove Series at Tri-C's Black Box Theater. Through that program, Shakka was invited back to feature on the Grammy award winning Words & Music Show! You may see excerpts from the show below... as he explains his intention behind 'Legacy of Love' as well as his forthcoming single LAH.

Currently, Shakka Hasberry who has written and arranged many uplifting songs has won the heart of Cleveland. In his hometown, the people's favorite anthem speaks of struggle... 'MAN DOWN' has played on RADIO ONE's 93.1 FM WZAK since August 2011 nearly every day. He has yet to release his video for Man Down which is being shot as a day in a life... P.S.A. for FATHER'S RIGHTS!!! It is rumored that his music has been heard off and on Radio One's nationally syndicated, The Micheal Baisden Show, who is notorious for introducing independent artists... especially those courageous enough to stand in the midst of controversy... and like it or not... Shakka Hasberry will die for what he believes.

"... All that do is for the sake of greatness in humanity... which I believe in. For without belief... what more is humanity but a parasite that lessens the integrity of Earth?"
