Washington, DC-born Steven “SHATiFF” Jenkins moved from Glenarden, Maryland to Clinton, South Carolina as a youth, and took his principles of allegiance and loyalty with him, tagging himself as an authentic human being before even making the declaration as an artist. After moving to South Carolina, his crew evolved into a collective known as the Universal Souljahz. It was with this group of young men where SHATiFF sharpened and whittled his skills as an artist, living and breathing the cyphers that they kept in motion.
In 2004, SHATiFF returned to the DMV scene with an agenda to fulfill his musical enterprise. Rooted in reality, the neo-righteous emcee made an impression on several heavy-hitters through relevant music that shows his camaraderie and continued development in the underground music circuit. Having collaborated with entities like JUDAH the Producer, 1st Impressions Studios, and Marky (Universal/ SRC) to give life to music through a brand entitled AuthentiCore; The Grit of the Grind, this authentic hip-hop brand has shared its products with music lovers across the board, remaining authentic to the core.
