Yoav Eliasi ( _he. יואב אליאסי) (born November 21, 1977), commonly known by his stage name The Shadow ( _he. הצל), is an Israeli rap artist. He is part of the stable of artists on the label, TACT Records.


He was born in Safed; his family relocated to Tel Aviv two years later. By his teenage years he had formed a deep bond with Kobi Shimoni, and the two began performing together at hip-hop shows.

After finishing his mandatory service in the IDF, he decided to stay on. This is where his rap name allegedly derives from. The official TACT Records profile says that Yoav Eliasi was in an elite undercover unit where he could not show his face, though in an interview with Yehoram Gaon on Channel 1, Eliasi claims that he was a "Mifaked Mishmat".

He was featured with Kobi Shimoni and their protege, Tamer Nafar in the documentary "Channels of Rage". He continues to work under the TACT label and has been quite successful.
