About Broadway Barrett:
Broadway Barrett aka Robbie Shades is a hip hop/rap artists & beat producer, born & raised in Sunset Park, in Brooklyn, NY. Growing up in a lower class neighborhood during the early 80’s, where the crime rate was at an all time high, Broadway found himself surrounded by gangs, drugs, murders, but most notable the golden age of rap music.
Broadway Barrett immediately fell in love with the music when he heard the song “The Show” by Doug E. Fresh. From there on, he began beat boxing for the older cats on his block & began battling in his schools cafeteria & different neighborhoods against other local rappers.
Although rapping was a fun past time for Barrett, hanging out on the streets smoking weed, drinking 40’s, selling drugs was the normal lifestyle for most young males growing up in Brooklyn in the 90’s & for Rob, it would be no different. However, the music was his passion & so he decided to take it a little more serious & see where the music would lead him.
After performing in venues through out the U.S with his crew (Korna Res), Rob took a break & finished up his schooling as a electrician. With that out the way now, he’s back & ready to be that new spark that the industry has been missing.
Broadway Barrett has been focusing on his first solo project & should be dropping new music soon.
