Presented by Inhouse Talent and hosted by Socio-political Rap Artist, Activist and Entrepreneur Sellassie, the 2Racks Rap Contest is creating a movement for upcoming and independent hip hop and packing clubs for new music. 2Racks is a fast-paced, single-elimination rap competition where emcees perform original songs head to head in front of celebrity and industry professional judges, competing for a $2000 cash prize. Designed to expose interesting and determined fresh talent, cultivate relationships, and build community, 2Racks is the newest component from Inhouse Talent, creating a fun and unique environment to discover and support independent artists.

2Racks Rap Contest creator, co-producer and host Sellassie is an independent hip hop artist, entrepreneur and activist. With an acclaimed debut release, I’m Tryin’ to Make a Livin’ Not a Killin’, and a new follow-up album, Sins of Your Forefathers, Sellassie is carving his niche and shining as a leading progressive voice and face of independent Hip Hop. Although inspired and motivated from reading hundreds of books, Sellassie is self-taught and came up on the streets. Sellassie’s lyric is rooted in a deep comprehension of the world around him. He writes on domestic and world politics, international relations and community needs, corporate thuggery and the obstacles independent artists face. He has seen first hand the problems that his music addresses. He has seen black on black crime, homicide, the plight of drugs and money destroying his community, and witnessed the decay of Independent Hip Hop. In addition to the new record, Sellassie has built a revolutionary show series WE ALL WE GOT and 2Racks Rap Contest, is 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.“

2Racks Rap Contest is a series, with stops in Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, San Francisco, Orlando, Seattle, Berkeley, Pasadena and Honolulu. With 2Racks and WE ALL WE GOT, the team has produced over 80 successful events in just over the last year in more than 15 markets. Our shows are independent artist created for independent artists. With the pulse of the streets and the heart of the people, 2Racks Rap Contest is determined to pack clubs with new music and cultivate a thriving environment for emerging talent.
