SongVault Artist Profile
North Carolina, United States
East Coast Rap / Adult Alternative
The housing projects, hustlers, subways. police brutality, crime. Street credibility,and drugs, Harlem. New York City. If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. The MC, Sallah- Dolla is living proof of having that survivor's instinct.
Sallah-Dolla has been a serious rhyme sayer since 12 years old and has been a student of hip hop since he entered this world. He developed his skills through battling rappers as a teen from New York City all the way to North Carolina where he migrated in his early teens. Not to be discouraged from leaving the fast pace life to the now laid back life, he brought Hip Hop with him and carried that torch as it is still burning with him in the New Millenium.
While in Greenville, North Carolina, Sallah Dolla was working on his craft as a rapper and producer and built a local buzz proving to himself he has what it takes to change the game. With a serious attitude, crazy delivery, futuristic freestyle, and diverse flow he's a Hip Hop soldier ready for war. When people hear his rap style, the first thing they noticed is that he does not sound like some you heard before nor does he sound like any popular sucker MC of today.
Without the support of anyone, he was able to put out an album, Love Season, which shows the diverse soundscape of Sallah-Dolla. After that milestone and achievement, he moved on to work for Imani Entertainment, the management home of R&B sensation Keyshia Cole where he gained valuable knowledge in understanding the financial aspects of managing an artist.
Sallah-Dolla continues to build on his craft and honing his skills to show his creativity and artistic expression. He is an MC that is out to make a mark on the industry and show the world what Hip Hop is and what it really can be. In January, 2010 he launched a independent record label called Hydro Records catering to the needs of unsigned artists that in the Greenville, Pitt county area, with two strong determined business oriented artists that has been recently signed to Hydro Records and many more artists seeking a opportunity to work with the label, the label has becoming the only opportunity for serious artists in the community. He has established himself as a local television producer and has developed a show called the “Grind-Time Show” with G-pat network channel 23 which is a local television network located in Greenville North Carolina. He is one of the few artist that understands the needs of the community and works very hard to use his resources to enhance the lives of all individuals he come in contact with. With most of the components in place to compete with major record labels, this company is only seeking national distribution to continue supporting the un-tapped talent and potential that exist in the Eastern North Carolina area.
