Shea Rodger, better known as Chedda Cheese, is a Canadian rapper, singer and songwriter from Calgary, Alberta. He is known in particular for his prominence in the Canadian and American battle-rap scene and humorous songs primarily within the hip-hop & pop genres.
Growing up as an awkward, shy kid with very little sense of purpose in life, Shea began writing rap lyrics with a couple of friends in high school as a way to pass the time. From what was originally a satirical way to make his peers laugh, he found a genuine passion for something for the first time.
Since he first began making music as a teenager, Chedda Cheese has accumulated over 4 million total views on YouTube and has opened for artists such as Lauryn Hill, Lil Dicky, Big Sean, Amine, Anderson Paak, Wale and many more.
