North Hollywood, California, USA
SoloHip HopSoul

My sound is labeled as Hip-Soul. It consist of dope rhymes full of heartfelt lyrics mixed heavenly melodies flooded w/ spectacular punchlines and tongue twister. My content is based on the highs and lows of life. As an emcee I would be categorized as a Backpacker/Heartbreak Rapper.


Selassie is the last ounce of strength that allows Hip-Hop to rise before the referee counts to ten. Although he knows rising alone precedes any expectation for a modern day poet. He still continues fights with all the hope of Hip-Hop lovers nesting on his back. Eluding the cold ice hands of the Ć¢€œThe MachineĆ¢€? while dodging the blood that leaks from those diamond encrusted hands.

The full blooded Ethiopian was raised in Philadelphia and was heavily influenced by the soul movement of the seventies as well as the present day neo-soul movement. By blending meaningful lyrics, savvy wordplay, Philly's soul & a Lion's heart. Selassie diverse & unique brew is taste we all can enjoy
