Feeling a bit camera shy


Shafi Darr, (Born November 9, 1988)  is a diverse and versatile artist from Waukegan IL. Often feeling trapped by the obstacles between dreams and reality, his ultimate quest is to gain personal freedom. Shafi was raised by a full time single mother, and had a part time father who was minimally present throughout his life. Growing up, Shafi often kept to himself leaving everything bottled in. Unaware of the strength of his repressed emotions, Shafi was strongly impacted by his unconsicious feelings and at the age thirteen he began to heal and vent through the Art of Expression. Music became his Therapy.

Living with a careless attitude and ignoring the battles within himself, he made numerous decisions that ended with the lost of multiple friendships/relationships. Turning to his form of therapy, Shafi began writing music again alongside a little soul searching. Slowly finding himself while constantly channeling thoughts and emotions, he took time in crafting his skills and talents to flow naturally. Taking pride in his talent of expressing his conflicted feelings, Shafi began sharing his work. He received much admiration from others which then began to fuel his drive in exploring his talent further.

At twenty three, Shafi decided to pursue a career in music. While traveling through his musical journey, he began to understand himself more. He learned that in order to become and remain successful, one needs self-control. Shafi proclaims, that when a person has self-discipline they are in touch with their inner god. His philosophy is the reason he also goes by the name Shafi The God, meaning "Shafi The Gainer of Discipline."

Musically, Shafi feels his purpose is to express himself to the world in hopes that it will drive many to find inner peace and comfort with oneself. His ultimate purpose is to touch as many as he can, showing them that everyone should take hold of their inner god. When you listen to Shafi, you will hear a flow that does a strategical play on words, organized with a variety of moods in a confident delivery.
