Midwest’s NEXT UP: SHY CLASS
Shy Class is a dynamic new Emcee hailing from the Midwest who is steadily dominating the national underground hip-hop scene. Growing up in a variety of locales across the country, Shy Class’s delivery is as diverse as her upbringing. Hailing from “Naptown” Indiana, she bounced back and forth from Texas to California with her dad. Reminiscent of southwestern legends such as Lil Boosie, or even Yo Gotti, Shy Class spits with the maturity and relatability of a rap veteran while maintaining her class and sex appeal. Shy Class has spent 2016 conquering regional and local showcases and competitions as well as being featured as an opening act for major recording artist Lil Boosie plus positioning herself to embark on other nationally marketed tours in 2017. Shy Class has also released her debut EP “NEXT UP” and premiere single “Waves” this year on national radio stations this fall, and for ShyClass’s fanbase, the project couldn’t come sooner. Met with a strong reception, “NEXT UP” is more than just a title but a statement of truth. I had a chance to ask the young queen a few questions via email…
