ELKINS — The Augusta Heritage Center of Davis & Elkins College will present a talk with West Virginia hip hop artist and producer Shelem at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 23 in Myles Center for the Arts on the College campus.
The event, which also will be broadcast via Facebook Live, is free and open to the public with generous support from the West Virginia Humanities Council.
In his presentation titled “Living and Breathing Hip Hop in West Virginia,” Shelem will discuss his journey and creative process.
“We’re so excited to be working with Shelem and we’re looking forward to hearing him expand on his unique journey in the music industry,” said Augusta Heritage Center Executive Director Seth Young. “Appalachia has always been an intricate patchwork of cultures, and this session is sure to dive into some often-unexplored areas.”
Born Isaac Shelem Fadiga in Silver Spring, Maryland, to parents from the Ivory Coast in West Africa, he began producing, writing and recording his own songs at age 14. After graduating from Marshall University in Huntington with a degree in civil engineering in 2018, he moved to Charleston to begin his engineering career as he developed a plan to launch his music career.
Shelem’s debut album, “The Jaunts,” was released in September 2018. In 2019, he launched his “Delivery Man” campaign in tandem with the release of his song of the same name. For a month, he personally delivered all merchandise orders within a 100-mile radius of Charleston. He has since released “UhhYup! The Mixtape” and “UhhYup! Bingo,” both with an interactive social media component.
Once live music returned in summer 2021, Shelem played a wide array of local festival slots including Charleston’s FestivALL and Live On The Levee, and the Huntington Music and Arts Festival. In July 2021, Shelem was featured on NPR Music’s “Slingshot Series” and released his latest single “Suga Wata.”
