SATURDAY APRIL 16, 2011
60 Sixth St, San Francisco
WE ALL WE GOT returns to Club Six on April 16th with acclaimed New York Rapper RAH DIGGA, headlining the showcase series in a rare SF performance. Presented by Inhouse Talent and hosted by Revolutionary Poet Sellassie, WE ALL WE GOT is an independent artist showcase designed to expose interesting and determined emerging artists, cultivate relationships, and build community. WE ALL WE GOT is a place to discover some new music you just might like and mightn't hear elsewhere.
Rah Digga is well known as a long time member of the Flipmode Squad a hip hop group led by Busta Rhymes, she parted ways amicably with the group in 2007 She has been called "one of rap's most prominent women MCs, by Allmusic and "one of hip-hop's most skilled female MCs" in the book How to Rap. Rah Digga recently released a new album, Classic, to high acclaim with production by Nottz, and a promo single was released entitled "This Ain't No Lil Kid Rap". In addition to the upcoming show, Digga is also releasing the latest remix from Classic. The track, "Check Me Boo (9th Still Checkin' Remix)," is 9th Wonder's own take on the fan favorite "Check Me Boo." While, as with previous Digga remixes from the likes of Khrysis and others, the lyrics remain untouched, 9th Wonder brings a new feel musically, with understated soulful boom-bap to match the forceful lyrics and contrast Nottz' heavy drums, deep bass, and organs.
WE ALL WE GOT host Sellassie is shining as a leading progressive voice in S.F. Bay Hip Hop. With an acclaimed debut release, I'm Tryin' to Make a Livin' Not a Killin', and a new follow-up album, Sins of Your Forefathers, he is carving his niche in Hip Hop. Although inspired and motivated from reading hundreds of books, Sellassie is self-taught and came up on the streets. Sellassie's lyric is rooted in a deep comprehension of the world around him. He writes on domestic and world politics, international relations and community needs, corporate thuggery and the obstacles independent artists face. He has seen first hand the problems that his music addresses. He has seen black on black crime, he has lost many close friends to homicide, he has seen the drugs and money destroy his community, he has witnessed the decay of Independent Bay Hip Hop. In addition to the new record, Sellassie is building this revolutionary show series WE ALL WE GOT, is working with many social, political and youth based initiatives, and is a contributor to various special projects including Emcees for Peace's The Matter That Matters CD and the film, "It Doesn't Cost Nothin' to Dream."
