Shide has always liked to sing and rap from an early age, but it was not until January 2010 that he started thinking about making music his career.
Shide had recorded a few songs before but very few and far apart. In January 2010 he met Marcus James (Producer), They immediately connected musically and realised together they could make music that the industry needed.
Marcus James and Shide Boss made music for the next 6 months without releasing any material out until they heard about a nationwide unsigned competition in August 2010 which was on channel 4 (UK Tv channel).
Shide entered the competition with a song called ‘Its Alright’, after four weeks of voting system and thousands and thousands of votes Shide Boss was named the winner.
