This week’s #TBT music video from the archives of #WorldWide Premieres on WWETV is Shea Marie ft. Sticky Green in “Family Biz”.
The brother and sister tandem became an entity in the Toronto rap scene after Sticky Green made waves with his cousin Benny Blacc with the rap group Smugglaz. Carrying on the tradition of the family, Shea Marie started singing initially on her debut with the single “Tonight” from Sticky Green’s Now Or Never album.
She would branch off to create her own mixtape soon afterwards and would create the single “Family Biz” featuring her brother. Shea Marie used the sample from Kanye West‘s debut album of “College Dropout” with the single “Family Business”. The idea came to her mind to follow suit with her mixtape and to name the lead song “Family Biz” which is also a play off the Smugglaz mixtape “Family Business.”
On August 28th, Shea Marie would pass away at the age of 35 and leave behind two children. WWETV pays homage to an artist who helped create music for WorldWide Entertainment TV in the past. Check out the remixed version of the “Family Biz” music video below.
