I AM DOPE!" -Selah Blak Sol

The Aqui Ali Show with April J on Black Love Poetry Series Network welcomes Selah Blak Sol

Bio: Born May 7, 1987 in Atlanta, GA and at a young age Selah fell in love with two things, basketball and Hip hop being exposed to both by his older brother, DJ. From Kilo-Ali, Goodie Mobb, Outkast, No Limit, Lost Boys, 3-6 Mafia, Young Bloodz, Lil Jon & The Eastside Boyz, Young Jeezy, Cash Money, Shaquille O'neal, Biggie and so many more artist of the 90's and early 2000's influenced who he is today. The diversity of his artistry ranges from poetic, political, raunchy, fun and intellectual, his music and poetry reflects that. And being the best isn't a concern but being dope is what drives him. "Soon to fly high over the field of poppy poets whose dope is as dope as mine but I'm the better choice dope. "Soon to fly high over the field of poppy poets whose dope is as dope as mine but I'm the better choice dope. I AM DOPE!" -Selah 

Before becoming a rapper he was a bonafide poet and conforming stanzas into 16 bars was a daunting task. Discovering his gift in 2016 he began his journey performing at local open mics, churches and protest rallies in Georgia & South Carolina. Selah is a trailblazer! July 1, 2018 was the birth of the ‘Poetry in Hip Hop: Upstate Tour’. As an unknown artist at that time, the creation of his tour was to promote himself, other artist and the release of his debut album ‘Poetry in Hip Hop’, named after his tour. And for that he has set himself apart from any other artist in the Carolinas and beyond, where he currently resides. His brand has reached states such as New York, Connecticut, Georgia, Boston and  North Carolina. 

His debut album ‘Poetry in Hip Hop’ was released February 9, 2019 and shortly after he earned a distribution deal with Empire Records/Othaz Records/864HipHop and re-released July 8, 2019.
