San Francisco Hip Hop Artist Sellassie created a buzz last week with S.C.O.’s team effort on Faithfully (49ers Anthem) and is following up with his newly released Stop Hatin’ in the Bay Remix. You may ask yourself, what does Sellassie mean when he says “Stop Hatin’ in the Bay.” If you’re a native to the San Francisco bay area, you’ve seen the posters.
They’re on thousands of poles in your neighborhood and on hundreds of liquor store and smoke shop windows across the Bay Area. Stop Hatin’ in the Bay is Sellassie’s plea to independent artists to support each other’s music and movement, by first and foremost; LISTENING TO EACH OTHER.
