Feeling a bit camera shy


Pow Shadowz (Patrick McCallum) was born in Chattanooga,TN in the mid 1970's. He fell in love with Hip Hop music at a young age when he first encountered rappers like The Sugar Hill Gang and Kurtis Blow. However, it was the legendary L.L Cool J that most inspired him. He began freestyling for his classmates at the age of 9 and started writing songs at age 13, from that point on he knew he wanted to be a professional and successful emcee.

Pow linked up with Vibe Tribe Ent./ The Vibe Tribe in Chattanooga,TN in 1992 and mastered his skill. While with Vibe Tribe he released two independent EP's; "Vietnum" in '95 and "Detination" in '97, selling only a few hundred copies of each but maintaining an underground fan base all over the country. He went to Tennessee State University in 1994 where he graduated with a BS degree in Africana Studies and became a school favorite known throughout Nashville for his lyrical talents. While in Nashville, he opened up for rappers such as; Common, KRS-One and Jay-Z and even toured with Reggae band Osadolos, based out of Lagos, Nigeria.

Pow Shadowz likes to describe his music as Hip Hop Progressive; mainstream appeal while maintaining that raw, underground feel. Shadowz definitely has mass appeal and his love for real, classic Hip Hop comes out in his music. Pow's latest project and first full-length LP "Real Talk" was produced by young Nashville native Tyzayah Gold-Kiser. Pow co-produced three songs on the LP. Tyzayah's production style is sharp, innovative and very experienced. He captured Pow's classic Hip Hop essence and brought the best out of him using digital and organic instrumentation. The LP will be released on Word Life Records this fall.

Pow has recently relocated to Southern California to further his Hip Hop career and "spread the word of Progressive Hip Hop" as he likes say. His music is a reflection of his college education, his street knowledge, and his deep spiritual awareness. Pow Shadowz is an independent artist, his music speaks for itself.
