Born and raised in Oakland California, Marquette Hudson started playing instruments at an early age. After listening to music from Grandmaster Flash and Kurtis Blow, Shiftkit started writing his first rhyme at the age of 8 calling himself Kette. Shortly after, he was in school battle rapping with others making a name for himself. By the age of 14 he already had a style that was respected by friends and family. That respect had a friend introduce him to a DJ that worked with many others from different cities. One of the DJs that were around took note of Shiftkit and started focusing on his songs.

In 1992 Shiftkit teamed up with Mac Ted and formed the duo T.K.O. (Ted & Kette form Oakland) with their EP titled “Lets Get Ready To Rumble” on E&T Records. Performing throughout Northern California, the duo was cut short due to Shiftkit's run in with the law. However in 1995 the former T.R.U member Milk Man, took on Shiftkit as one of his members of “Da Goonz”, then releasing his EP titled “Reminisce” on Major Muzik Records.

It would be a DJ from Shiftkit’s younger days that guided him for the spotlight. DJ Igor Beatz who in 1990 created Bottom of tha Bassment Productions started recording Shiftkit first album in 1996. But the law put a constant hold on his career.

In 2001 Shiftkit completed his first album titled “You Aint Gotta Like It” with catchy songs like “Sunshine”, “Yo Potna”, “Supacaliforniaphatt”, and the hit “We Ride”. But things took a turn with long time friend Igor Beatz due to misunderstandings .

Still pushing “You Aint Gotta Like It”, Shiftkit stared his own marketing company for underground artist called Equaknox Entertainment. Working with artist like Snatcha and the prominent artist Dr. Illenstein , Shiftkit puts his time and effort into working on his up coming album titled “Automatic” which is due to hit the streets in June of 2010.

Being the one and only of his kind, Shiftkit’s contribute to music has not yet been fully reached, but for the listeners who already know of the talented artist, can confirm that the 38 year old rapper still has what most artist are trying to get. Skills!!!!
