Sean Anthony Shepard, known as MC Sean Anthony (Detroit, 10 February 1982) is an American rapper, songwriter, producer and screenwriter. MC Sean Anthony taught himself audio production at a young age and operated his church sound room when he was brought to fellow church member and gospel recording artist Fred Hammond to refine his engineering skills. MC Sean Anthony started producing music and writing songs while attending college and in 2006, his demo work was presented to Mike Winans Jr. of the Winans family and soon after Sean Anthony became a songwriter for his Baby Mike Music, where he released his first production work on Danity Kane's self entitled debut album with the song "Press Pause". The album sold over 1 million copies certifying Sean Anthony as a Platinum Selling songwriter.

A year later MC Sean Anthony followed up with a song on B5's second album "Don't Talk, Just Listen" with "How You Not Gonna" which didn't reach anticipated record sales. After the controversial ponze scheme allegedly led by Mike Winans Jr which destroyed the credibility of the legendary gospel Winans family, Sean Anthony ventured out independently under his own record label and publishing company, ShepTime Music Inc. . MC Sean Anthony gained some recognition for his first single "The Strip Club Anthem", but the first release buzz was short lived due to associated producers requesting to obtain more ownership of the creative rights.[citation needed] The song was pulled by Island Def Jam and released on August 28, 2012 worldwide after all ownership issues were rearranged and redistributed. MC Sean Anthony is still currently signed to ShepTime Music Inc. MC Sean Anthony's first artist on the ShepTime Music Inc. label is Yung Greg, from Detroit, Mi. Yung Greg is an up and coming artist who has gained notoriety in Detroit with his great lyrical talent. Yung Greg was signed to a multi year, 7 million dollar contract. "Yung Greg is ready to take over hip-hop" says, MC Sean Anthony
