Event

Sellassie + special guests
The Rap Contest creator, host and producer Sellassie, is the worlds first higherground hip-hop artist; he is a social justice activist, a member of the #Frisco5; withstanding the longest politically motivated hunger strike in San Francisco, entrepreneur, event producer and pioneer.  Sellassie has carved his niche as a leading progressive voice in hip-hop and as a force in bringing independent artists together.  Sellassie performs at Amnesia on June 23rd a headline set in his first hometown performance in 2 years.

A San Francisco native, Sellassie is proof that there are young black artists that can make music that is creative, street, positive and smart.   With an acclaimed and award-winning debut release, Im Tryin to Make a Livin Not a Killin, this trendsetting emcee has garnered a street level buzz with a fresh perspective.   He stands firm to his message, has a charismatic presence and is evidence that not every rapper raps negatively, glorifying drugs, guns, money or their ego.  He is also the creator, producer and host of the Independent Artist Series, The Rap Contest, We All We Got and Undiscovered Tour.   Producing over 200 shows on the calendar in the last five 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 Doesnt Cost Nothin to Dream.  Sellassie is grounded; a confident and refreshing emcee in an industry plagued with commercialism, materialism, negativity and drama.   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.

Sellassie has shared the stage with many great artists;  Rakim, Saul Williams, KRS-One, The Goodie Mob, Mos Def, Sly and Robbie, Vieux Farka Toure, dead prez, Redman and Method Man, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Ziggy Marley, Alanis Morissette, Raekwon, The Indigo Girls, Radio Active, Rebelution, Warren Haynes, Goapele, The Hieroglyphics, Mr. FAB, Camp Lo, Pharoahe Monch, Ise Lyfe, Namkha Rinpoche,  Medusa, One Block Radius, Lyrics Born, Kev Choice, Martin Luther, Silk-E, The Mighty San Quinn, The Jacka, The Husalah, Bayonics,  Zion I, Rah Digga, Rappin 4-Tay, Jelly Bread, Vinnie Paz, Keith Murray, Richie Rich, 2Mex and Jennifer Johns among hundreds independent artists.
