Rae ShineRae Shine® was born in Fort Belvoir, Virginia. When she was four-years-old, her family moved to Germantown, Maryland (MD), which is located just north and west of Washington, DC, and Baltimore, MD. Germantown was and still is a culturally-diverse urban community. At an early age, Rae loved to sing, having a knack for harmonizing. 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. They would hang out and flow for hours competing for the top emcee spot. Music always surrounded her and she studied hip-hop like it was school work. Hip-Hop was a way she could relate to people. They would always be surprised at her knowledge of the game and ability to recite lyrics from many different emcees. During her teens, Rae wrote poems to express her inner feelings while dreaming of being a famous rapper.
