Country:United States
Info:Raashon Daniels is ShunDi now residing in Bolingbrook, Illinois, but hailing from Chicago's south side.

ShunDi is raised up in a God-fearing home. Though surrounded by alcohol, drugs, and gang activity, ShunDi managed to stand strong and stay true to his morals. Coming up under the first generation of hip hop, he was heavily influenced by the likes of ground-breaking artists such as Run DMC, LL Cool J, Rakim, KRS-One, and Public Enemy. At a very young age, ShunDi began writing rhymes but never really thought much about it, eventually laying it down in the late nineteen eighties.

In 1992, ShunDi was inspired to once again pick up the pencil and begin to write as he had a life changing experience with the Lord. His hip hop journey began as he and two others formed a group called "Tribe of Judah", performing in numerous local concerts and outreaches.

During this time, ShunDi linked arms with other local hip hop artists, forming a family of MCs with similar passions, goals, and desires. This family, formerly "The Modern Day Nazarites," eventually evolved into what is now known as "Nazir."

As a performer, ShunDi has appeared in many local and national events, most notably - JAM Youth Conference at Chicago's Arie Crown Theatre along with Donovan McNabb, Chris Tucker, Bishop Noel Jones and Deleon Richards; Compassionworks along with Cross Movement: Cornerstone Christian Music Festival along with Dirt (Shadow of the Locust family). ShunDi has also performed in many prisons and juvenile detention centers all across the nation with Youth Direct Ministries and the Institute for Prison Ministries at Wheaton College.

Shun Di can be heard on compilations like Best of Submissions Volume 2 (2005). His debut album First Impressions is released in 2005. A list of the albums he's featured on:
Nazir's first single - Nazarites (2002)
Nazir/Dirt Split Ep - Broken Earth (2003)
Rapzilla - Rapzilla Compilation Volume 1 (2004)
