Shawn Green (a.k.a Tarashi)

Shawn Green aka Tarashi. Hip Hop and it’s roots are my primary interest (funk/soul/jazz breaks). I’ve never played any instruments.

I’m primarily a freestyle MC, I was ahead of my time back in the mid 90’s when I was mixing traditional battle MC type delivery with “nerdcore” topics. Dabbling in local freestyle sessions and the quickly emerging internet MC community, I appeared on a few underground compilations in the Bay Area hip hop scene. Moving to Camrbidge, MA to work at Harmonix has allowed me to resurrect my MC skills on the Oxytocin project. My past projects include work with MCs Moon, Torch, Wyn in the crew Mass Hysteria.

I’m a Producer at HMX.

I’ve worked on mad games:


Rock Band Track Pack Classic Rock

Karaoke Revolution Party

Karaoke Revolution Volume 3

Karaoke Revolution Volume 2

Karaoke Revolution


Space Siege

Brooktown High

ESPN NFL Prime Time 2002

Madden Football 2001

Madden Football 2000

Tiger Woods 2000

Knockout Kings 2000

NCAA March Madness 2000

I was excited to collaborate with some of the many talented Harmonix musicians and rekindle my passion for hip hop. It’s a sorely under represented category right now in the music game genre.
