Meet the man who created waves in the industry with his very first album “Life Goes On”. Receiving 300,000 downloads with 24 hours of the launch of his album, Selldretti showed that he is not your ordinary Southside boy putting a few words together, but putting his experiences into words.
Born back in Columbus, Georgia to parents Marcus Seldon and Nicole Ash, he grew up along with 2 other brothers Marcus and Nicholas. His family has always been a source of inspiration and encouragement to his music right from his sophomore year in high school, basing his songs on their life experiences and the impact that they’ve had on his life.
His brother Marcus along with stepbrother Cameron, worked together to create his first chartbuster single “Pick Me Up”. This track was later seen in his first album Life Goes On, alongside Welcome to Columbus, Ga- which was featured on Coast 2 Coast Hottest In The State: Georgia Vol. 11 and DJ Young Cee’s Record Labels Need Me Vol. 88. This track made its mark receiving 100,000 downloads within the first week of its release.
A graduate of the Northside High School, Selldretti went on to join the US Army and was deployed in Afghanistan for 3 years. He returned to join the US Military Academy at West Point and pursue a degree in Law. Selldretti’s music has been heavily influenced and inspired from personal life events, talking about struggles of police brutality, black crimes and current challenges faced by Americans in America.
His first solo track Grieve was created during a difficult phase of his life, losing his mother to Lupus in May 2015 and grandfather within the course of 5 months, during his deployment. Selldretti has a promising career ahead of him, and we say this looking at the vibe he brings to the music industry. The anticipation for his new album Back to the Boom was preceded by a single released in October 2017 titled Rock the Block, promising nothing but greatness from all his future ventures.
