Shai Haddad (Hebrew: שי חדד) (born July 19, 1976), commonly known by his rap name SHI 360 (Hebrew: שי 360), is an Israeli rap artist and DJ. He is part of the stable of artists on the TACT Records label.

Background

His childhood was spent in Haifa, Israel until his family moved to Montreal, Canada when he was eleven years old. The move was difficult for Shai as he faced a new language and some anti-semitism which he describes in his solo album. During a 1997 visit to Israel, Shai met Kobi Shimoni another young adult interested in rap music. The two struck up a friendship and Shai began to DJ at Subliminal's club when he would come to Israel. He also gave Shimoni a new stage name, Subliminal.

After finishing his undergraduate degree at Concordia University in Canada, Shai released his first underground single called "Linguistiks". Soon after he released a full album in English called "Chapters". Finally he decided to make aliyah back to Israel. Thus his name SHI 360 became a reality. SHI is an acronym for Supreme Hebrew Intellect. 360 represents the turn around he made to make it back to Israel.

His connection with Subliminal paid off and Shai 360 released his first Hebrew language album under the TACT Records label. He continues to work with the label and has been quite successful but always makes reference to the strife of others in his music.Emet Records is SHI 360's own record label which is called "Israel's Future for Hip Hop."Emet Records artists are: SHI 360, Liri, Sky, Hai and Yamanz which includes Zadok Garame and Yuval "Juv" Vahab and an upcoming rapper, 15 year-old Avi "Nesher" Meir, "Nesh" for short. Avi "Nesher" Meir is one of "Israel's Architects of Hip Hop".
