In honor of TUPAC AMARU SHAKUR’s 41st Birthday, Sellassie and Inhouse Talent present a celebration in San Francisco for one of the world’s brightest. Hosted by S.F. luminary Sellassie, the celebration will feature many special guests that made music with Tupac, including Rappin’ 4Tay, Mac Mall, Ray Luv and Spice 1.
While Tupac was most famous for his rap career, he was also a gifted actor, poet and thoughtful while outspoken advocate for the poor and the overlooked in America. Tupac Amaru Shakur was an inspiration to millions. During his life, he produced an immense amount of artistic work, which included studio albums, major Hollywood feature films, and published works. He was most prolific in the music industry, selling over 75 million albums. 2Pac’s unapologetic lyrics were relevant, important, and reflective of the hard lives led by many. His music earned attention and respect through a poetic style that embraced street vocabulary while being innovative. Today, 2Pac is still considered by many to be one of the biggest influences on modern hip-hop.
Sellassie has carved his niche as a leading progressive voice in San Francisco Bay Area Hip Hop. With an acclaimed and award-winning debut release, I’m Tryin’ to Make a Livin’ Not a Killin’, a recent follow-up, Sins of Your Forefathers and a brand new release, Stop Hatin in the Bay Remix by Traxamillion, this upcoming emcee has garnered a street level buzz with a fresh perspective. Sellassie is proof that there are young black artists that can make music that is creative, street, positive and smart. He stands firm to his message, has a charismatic presence and is evidence that not every rapper raps negatively, glorifying drugs, guns, women, money or their ego. He is also the creator and co-producer of the Independent Artist Series, We All We Got + 2Racks Rap Contest. Producing over 90 shows on the calendar in the last 2 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 Doesn’t Cost Nothin’ to Dream.
