2000–2019: Early life and music debut
Jesús Paye Amaru was born on July 25, 2000, in Arequipa, Peru, the third of seven siblings and the son of farming parents. He worked as a street vendor of different products and got on the buses to sing, as a source of work.
Under the pseudonym of Faraón Love Shady, he began creating content on his social networks, mainly making challenges and video blogs of his life in Arequipa. His rise to fame at this stage is due to the fact that the Peruvian YouTuber Andynsane published a video about him. Jesús was presented as the "replacement for Tapir 590".
In August 2019, he debuted in music with his first single "Sin condón". In November 2019, he released his second single "Panocha", which was more successful and managed to position itself in YouTube trends in Peru.
In June 2020, he publishes "Panocha Remix" in collaboration with Puerto Rican singers Jon Z and Ele A el Dominio. That same month, he released for Bolivian singer Qmayb the single "Una cunumi (Remix)" featuring J Gonzo, Ose, and Xvideo Token; and "Por el asterisco" with Puerto Rican rapper Kevvo.
In August 2020, he released his most popular song on YouTube "Oh me vengo", with which he again ranked first in trends on YouTube in Peru and in four days reached the figure of one million views. That same month he released "Soy guapo". These two songs were the first he made with the record label Híbrido Gang Music, whose name alludes to the way he calls his fans "híbrido gang".
After the growth of his popularity, Love Shady was interviewed by media such as Trap House Latino, La Zona, and Billboard Argentina. In November 2020, he was invited to the América Televisión TV show El reventonazo de la chola, where he performed the song "Ponte mascarilla" with Peruvian singer La Tigresa del Oriente. Later, he participated in Trap Live Peru 2020, a virtual concert produced by Blackstar Records.
In July 2021 he released "Duro 2 Horas Remix" featuring American-Uruguayan comedian and musician El Bananero.
In September 2021, he published "Gamer Over Fantasmay", a diss directed to Argentine rapper Zaramay. Previously, both had discrepancies in social networks. The video clip on YouTube managed to enter the list of trends in Peru, Argentina, and other Spanish-speaking countries.
2022–present: "Freestyle Session #13: RIP resentido" and concerts
In February 2022, he announces a tour of Mexico that includes presentations in Playa del Carmen, Cancún, Mexico City, Guadalajara , and Monterrey, during March month. However, the concerts were delayed until June, and some of them were canceled.
In April 2022, he premiered his second diss, against the Puerto Rican rapper Residente, entitled "Freestyle Session #13: RIP resentido". The song generated a great impact on Internet, the video exceeded the figure of one million views in less than a day and ranked number one in YouTube trends. The context of the tiraera originates from the controversy between Residente and Colombian singer J Balvin, and, with it, the launch of "BZRP Music Sessions #49". Love Shady previously demonstrated his disagreement with Residente and his support for Balvin through stories on his Instagram account. Regarding the song, in an Instagram post where Faraón promotes the single, Residente commented: "You're the best. I'm your fan. Keep hitting it hard and writing", to which Jesús replied: "Residente, thanks. Since you're wearing the 'R' I await your answer. This is resolved in the booth", followed by a story: "Thanks for accepting it, it's good to add one more fan, I've always hit him hard and that's only 13% of my potential."
In May 2022, he performed a concert in Arequipa, his hometown, being his first concert in 2 years; followed by other presentations in Cochabamba, Chiclayo, Juliaca, Tingo María, Lima, Trujillo, Piura, and Tacna.
In November 2022 he is announced as one of the artists present at the Electric Daisy Carnival electronic music festival, which will take place in February 2023 in Mexico.
