About Shaggy

Hailing from Kingston, Jamaica, Shaggy spent his childhood on the tropical island, getting a feel for the tropical vibes and vibrant music scene that the small Caribbean nation offers. His family would eventually uproot and move to the world's cultural capital, New York City, where young Shaggy began taking music and singing classes in the Brooklyn borough. His singing talent would be immediately noticed, but before he could get swooped up into the music scene, duty called as Shaggy enlisted with the United States Marine Corps and was shipped off to Iraq and Kuwait for the duration of the First Gulf War. The military would leave its mark in an unexpected way, with Shaggy exiting the military with the firm belief that his next big career step wouldn't be with guns and cannons, but in music

Shaggy immediately got to work, writing and recording his own material while immersing himself in the local music scene. He would work with some of the hottest producers of the day, from Lloyd Campbell and Frankie Cutlass to Robert Livingston and Don One. He released a string of hits that quickly gained him popularity, and was featured in a television commercial for Levi's jeans.
