MC Shy D

Biography

MC Shy D (born Peter Jones) is the Bronx-born cousin of Afrika Bambaataa. He began on Luther Campbell's label in 1987 with Got to Be Tough and Comin' Correct in '88. After one more record (1989's Don't Sweat Me), he went through a lean period but rebounded in 1993 with The Comeback. It was a more artistically ambitious release, with more contemporary production and a lean, refined rapping style. Another long hiatus preceded the appearance of Recordnize, featuring DJ Smurf.
