In 2013, he was a top-five finalist in the Magnum King of the Dancehall competition. Three years later and Shac is promoting his latest single, 'Push Back'.

The song was produced by Kevin 'Rural' Whyte on the 'Fulla Soul' rhythm. It is the follow-up to his recent release, Life (Better Mi).

Shac, whose real name is Amos Harris, is from Decoy in Toll Gate, Clarendon.

According to the entertainer, his experiences while growing up developed his passion for music, and by extension the inspiration for his music.

"I came up with the name Shac when I was a member of a group called Afta Shack Family (A.S.F). Being the youngest member of the group, I was called 'Likkle Shack'. After a while I decided to shorten it to just simply Shac," he said.

"I'm a well-rounded individual with an artistic mind and warm personality. Music is what I've always wanted to do. When I was in school, I would pretend to host stage shows in class along with my classmates."

After leaving Porus High School he moved to Barbados for a short time, where he did the music video for a song called Girl Yuh Hard, which was produced by Outdeh Records.

It was after his return to Jamaica that he decided to enter the Magnum-sponsored televised talent show.

"Magnum was a great experience for me. I enjoyed every minute of it," said Shac, who is now managed by New York-based Upaka Talent Management and Productions.

A week after his elimination from the competition, he was contacted by noted producer DJ Frass, who produced the song Live Mi Life.

Shac's other recordings include Party Nice, produced by Rural Area Production, and Drinks that was done by Deja Vu Production.
