Inhouse Talent

San Francisco


San Francisco Revolutionary Poet and Activist Sellassie carved his niche in 2010 as a leading progressive voice in Bay Area Hip Hop.  His latest record, Sins of Your Forefathers created a street level buzz about this upcoming emcee and the Independent Artist Series, We All We Got that he co-created and produces with partner Inhouse Talent, has distinguished itself as a premier outlet for independent artists.  This past year has set the tone and foundation for many dynamic projects and advancements Sellassie has planned for the coming year.

With an acclaimed debut release, I'm Tryin' to Make a Livin' Not a Killin',  and strong follow up, Sins of Your Forefathers, Sellassie is focused on taking his music to the masses.  The latest album was written this past year to address the realities of ghetto life as seen through the eyes of Sellassie. 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, and has witnessed the decay of Independent Bay Area Hip Hop. One of the highlights of the album, sure to be a next Bay Anthem, is called "Stop Hatin' in the Bay,"  which speaks directly to established and up and coming artists that feel that they need to compete with one another to be successful.  For Sellassie fans who are used to his rough, articulate revolutionary sound, the album will feature "Did I" and "You're To Blame."   The listener takes a ride with Sellassie, San Francisco's next rising son, thru 17 thought-provoking and inspiring tracks, coming direct from a young thinker, writer and poet.  In a commitment to truth and justice in an industry of destructive messages and payola scandals, Sellassie's mix of non-traditional beats and clever rhymes easily set him apart from the rest.  Masterfully articulating the struggle, he has a contagious rawness. In nearly a decade of writing rhymes, Sellassie's passion for poetry and truth has grown into his art, an art dedicated to exposing truth and taking a stand.

Inhouse Talent and Sellassie's independent artist series, WE ALL WE GOT produced 56 successful events in just over the last year, and is truly revolutionary, fulfilling it's design to expose interesting and determined artists, showcasing more than 400 independent emcees and singers, to cultivate relationships, and build community among independents. Now in over 12 markets, including San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Sacramento and Reno, NV, WE ALL WE GOT was created out of Sellassie's frustration of the current climate of Bay Area's Hip Hop community.  There is a real culture of non-support, Sellassie calls it the "crab in the bucket mentality" where independent artists pull each other down instead of supporting one another. There is a lack of good opportunity for emerging artists to be seen and heard and WE ALL WE GOT is determined to fill this gap.  The series has really grown and now has a sister-event, The 2Racks Rap Contest, where the hottest upcoming emcees perform their original songs competing for a $2000 cash prize. The first contest was in Los Angeles in November 2010 with New York, Atlanta, Hollywood and Pasadena dates set for early 2011. Independent artist created and produced for independent artists, with these shows, Sellassie is creating a movement where upcoming talent can gain exposure and experience.   WE ALL WE GOT and The 2Racks Rap Contest pack clubs for  new music and facilitate a place to discover the future of hip hop in a hate-free environment.

Sellassie has also contributed to several social, community and political causes in 2010.  He performed at the Power to the Peaceful Festival, the ANSWER coalition's 9th Anniversary of the Afghanistan War
