In celebration of 4 new releases, Medusa, better known as "Gangsta Goddess" headlines WE ALL WE GOT as it returns to Club Six on May 20th. 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.
With "Choclet Giddy Up," "Lay Down Low" featuring MC LYTE, "Cali Frame" and "Soul Elevation," LA Rap Artist Medusa continues to prove her skills. Medusa is widely known as the Queen of LA Hip Hop with a strong domestic and overseas fanbase. She has been highlighted on Showtime's "This is the Life," a documentary on the history of LA's underground movement stemming from the infamous "Goodlife Café" as well as HBO"s "Stanger Inside" and has hit the stage with Missy, Salt and Peppa, Rah Digga, Rage, MC Lyte, Trina, jean Grey, Roxaan Shante' and many more. After a recent twenty-seven (27) date tour, "Cardiac Arrest", Medusa came back to rock the Sunset Junction with Evelyn Champagne King and The Ohio Players. Her next project, "The Return of the Dream Team" will include the new single, "Cali Quake", with DJ Flict, DJ LD and MC Ariano.
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."
