A third culture kid raised in New York, New Jersey, and Ethiopia, SIIMBA SELASSIIE is just as familiar with the lions of the streets as he is with the lions of the jungle.
Much like his upbringing, SIIMBA's art is a blend of countless influences and experiences presented unapologetically. Finding strength in his vulnerabiltiy, the artist has been able to candidly give his perspective about his struggles in whichever form they have manifested and touched many in the process. Since planting roots in Brooklyn, NY, Siimba has gone from sleeping on the trains to headlining his own national tour, supported acts such as Rae Sremurred, Ty Dolla Sign, & Cam’ron, while amassing millions of streams on his first project and gaining a reputation for being one of the best live performers to ever hold the microphone. Known for his iconic appearance and stunning visuals, SIIMBA recently released "HOOKED" and "BAD FOR THE SOUL" which are singles off of his up coming sonic series "VIICES".
