Shyheim

Shyheim (born Shyheim Dionel Franklin in New York, New York) is an American rapper and actor affiliated with the Wu-Tang Clan. He was associated with a group called G.P. Wu and then began collaborating with Wu-Tang Records affiliated groups Killarmy and Sunz of Man.

As a teenager, Shyheim was once considered "hip hop's wunderkind", and a famed urban artist and heartthrob, whom "even the harshest of critics can’t deny the level of artistry displayed by Hip Hop child prodigy" and latter-day luminaries such as Jay-Z looked up to him, mentioning him in admiration in his autobiography Decoded. But run-ins with the law and an attack that needed 300 stitches to close a facial wound derailed his career.
