About Rae Shine: Mixing Hip Hop with a fusion of New Age Sound, emerges Rae Shine, lyricist and poet. Germantown, MD based Rae Shine began pursuing music full force in 2012, although her musical dreams began much earlier. Growing up, Rae was exposed to all genres of music from classical to Rock, Pop, R&B, and Rap. However, Rap and Hip-Hop music by Wu-tang, Tupac, Mobb Deep, No Limit, UGK and Jay-Z were especially cogent forces. Other major influences upon Rae’s music were her childhood friends who were very talented, freestyle and battle rappers.
Rae Shine’s creative, edgy sound is a breath of fresh air for hip hop and is taking the music industry by storm! Released on Amazon, iTunes & Spotify is Rae Shine’s debut Hip-Hop Album, “Vision Quest,” produced in collaboration with NC-based, beat masters, Da Knox Productions. Her album was creatively engineered by Dave at DC’s House Studio & Bomani at DC’s Urban Intalek. In early 2013, Rae Shine linked with a local movement, Label Lucky 7 Music Group or (L7MG), becoming mainstream. 2 years later she was appointed Chief Operating officer (C.O.O) of the Label. In 2014, Rae Shine emerged onto the larger stage, opening for her childhood inspiration, Mobb Deep, and soon after, Inspectah Deck of the legendary Wu-tang!
