About Sellassie:

www.sellassiefrisco.com

2Racks Rap Contest creator, host and producer Sellassie, is the world’s first Higherground Hip Hop Artist; he is a Social Justice Activist, Entrepreneur, Event Producer and Pioneer.  He has carved his niche as a leading progressive voice in Hip Hop and as a force in bringing independent artists together.  With an acclaimed and award-winning debut release, I’m Tryin’ to Make a Livin’ Not a Killin’, a recent follow-up, Sins of Your Forefathers and a brand new single,  Stop Hatin in the Bay Remix by Traxamillion, this trendsetting emcee has garnered a street level buzz with a fresh perspective.   Sellassie is proof that there are young black artists that can make music that is creative, street, positive and smart.  He stands firm to his message, has a charismatic presence and is evidence that not every rapper raps negatively, glorifying drugs, guns, women, money or their ego.  He is also the creator, producer and host of the Independent Artist Series, We All We Got, The 2Racks Rap Contest and Undiscovered Tour.   Producing over 200 shows on the calendar in the last few years in over 15 markets nationwide, the series have distinguished themselves as premier outlets for independent artists.  He is also working with many social, political and youth based initiatives, and is a contributor to various special projects including the film, It Doesn’t Cost Nothin’ to Dream.  Sellassie utilizes his music and events as a vehicle for social change and inspiration, and he regularly states that he ‘wants to be in the history books, not the pop charts.”
