…As if, being featured on Akon and Jadakiss’ hit single, “Freaky,” was enough,
as if, opening shows for Platinum artist; such as, Neyo, Styles, P., Lauren Hill, Paul Wall , Flo-Rida and Sean Paul, was enough,
Her grind and ambitions don’t stop there…

Meet “Shella da Blasian:”
Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. Shella hit the music scene at the ripe age of 11, with the support of her Japanese mother and African American Father. She began performing at school events, house parties, Dj-ing and entertaining family and friends. A year later, her father who was a major support in her life, was tragically killed. Shella recalls, “….that’s when my passion for music was birthed!”
After losing her beloved father, she began to express her thoughts and emotions through her writings and performances. By the age of 14; she was collaborating with many other young artist from her home island, Oahu. At this time, her music was being spun on major radio rotation.
By the time she was only 15 years old; she was in New York City shopping record labels. She caught the eye of Swizz Beats and the Ruff Ryders. At that time, they immediately signed her to Ruff Ryders label! Her career was headed in a positive upswing! Then dreadfully, she suffered another devastating loss…. Her Mother, whom she loved and admired, was murdered in Waikiki. She was then forced to move to the main land with family at the age of 16.
After losing both of her parents to violence and being thrusted into a brand new world and environment, Shella remained focused on the goals that she and her parents set. She predestined herself to be successful and to strive for excellence in everything she does.
Numb to the world with music as her only viable outlet; Shella started to produce her own original tracks and songs. She graduated from high school a year early and went on to study engineering, receiving her pro tool’s operator’s license. She engineered sessions with many platinum selling artist; such as, Lil Flip and the late great Nate Dogg.

During this tour, she built a solid fan base in Japan and America’s Hip Hop scene.
From Japan to the United States; this Japanese/African-American beauty is bringing attention to her erotic, melodic rap style as an art form which she coins as, “Blasian.” She is notorious for building and investing into her skills & talents through her company, Blasian, Inc. She works hard and BRANDS herself; through commercial endorsements, performances and promotions while capturing a solid fan base with both men and women worldwide!
