Biography

From the streets of Delmas 3 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti to NYC, Seca Konsa is a bold, unique, lyrical voice that uses Hip-Hip to communicate the struggle of urban life coupled with his own life experiences and those that must live in it. Seca Konsa translated from Creole to English means "That it, Like That," and that is the motto he lives by and brings to his music. Hip-Hop found Seca Konsa in the basement of Head 2 Toe Barbershop in Shady-Ville, Queens Village where he and his boys decided to form a group called Operation Survival Souls Combined (OSSC). It is there they would pen down lyrics, transfer them to tracks and take them to the streets. The streets turned into clubs and that served as the groups� stomping ground, that would later enable them to perform at a number of notable venues such as Joe's Pub, SOB's and colleges throughout the Tri-State area. Having the advantage of being bi-lingual and coming from a creative and talented family, Se�a Konsa was asked by his brother, who at that time had a Konpa band by the name of Miele to drop a few bars in Creole. That was his first introduction to rapping in Creole. The track, called Pito'm Pa Pale (Let me not talk) was successfully received by the Haitian Music Industry and this further fueled Se�a Konsa�s passion to begin a rapping career in Creole. Se�a Konsa continued to write in Creole while OSSC continued to push their music; however, the group fell apart amicably and went their separate ways, but still continued to support each others� projects. It is then that Se�a Konsa launched his solo career as the, "Illest Haitian Rapper." His debut mixed CD, entitled, "MELODI LA RI" (Melodies from the Streets) featuring Les Enrages has been dubbed by fans, peers, colleagues and non-Haitians a pure classic, especially with his signature track entitled "pa jijem konsa". Other tracks to have created a buzz is the track entitled, Se Mwen Se Ou (It�s me, It�s You), a smooth Creole Hip-Hop ballad. Unbeknownst to him, Se�a Konsa�s sophomore project would place him as one of the second generation pioneers of the "Creole Hip-Hop," movement. He is respected by his colleagues and fans as being one of the best lyrical rappers in the Creole Hip-Hop game. Since then, Se�a Konsa continues to push the envelope in the Creole Hip-Hop movement, especially with his upcoming mixtape, �MELODI LA RI� Vol 2 where we see a different, more introspective Se�a Konsa that brings a certain poetic justice to life on the streets. In addition to his upcoming mixtape, Se�a Konsa is now participating in the Emergenza Festival competition as a Creole Hip-Hop rapper. He has been able to make it to the Semi-Finals and recently his collaboration with his group �Les Enrage� entitled �Creole Hip-Hop Anthem,� on Fat Joe�s, �Make it Rain� track has had a few spins on Hot 97. Recently, he teamed up with French Beats International (FBI), to launch his first single off of his �MELODI LA RI� Vol 2, entitled, �We Be Ayisien.� Se�a Konsa�s mission is to use the Creole Hip-Hop movement as a way to communicate a message that could help change lives while dismantling preconceived stereotypes surrounding the Creole Hip-Hop language and Haitians. So, with that being said welcome to the world of Se�a Konsa and you always know when he is around, as you will always here his famous line .Se�a Konsa nan zon la, which means Se�a Konsa is in da building!!!
