The Shape Shifters are an underground hip hop collective based in Los Angeles, California.[1] It consists of Akuma, Awol One, Circus, Bleek, Die Young, Existereo, LA Jae, Life Rexall, Perk One, and Radioinactive.[2][3][4]

The group prevented The Shapeshifters, another act from the United Kingdom, from using the name in the United States. That resulted in the latter changing its name to Shape:UK, but for the United States only.
