Seiki: The Start of a Legend
Within just one year, give or take a couple of months, 22 year old Seiki has been rising up quickly
on the music scene. Having performed in cities around Texas including Fort Worth, Burlison, Arlington, and Joshua, he has achieved much as a performer. Though he’s Texas-based and what some might call “Underground Hip Hop,” his fan base spans the U.S. and even stretches as far as the U.K. He was also featured as a guest on Davizea “RED” Washington’s radio show, Fuzion World Radio. His music was among the highlighted topic, but he also spoke his thoughts on the recent outcome of the George Zimmerman trial.
All of his achievements, and the fact that he rarely has a weekend off since his recent discovery as a hip hop artist, is testimony to his dedication and the hard work he has put forth in pursuing his dream which is rapidly coming to fruition.
But Seiki is not your typical rapper. He’s a poet. A performer. A dancer. An all-around entertainer, and a very humble, kind person. He has integrated the artistry of everything it takes to bring the A-Game to the table in order to stand above the competition. He can freestyle like no other and in my opinion, would have no trouble keeping up with some of the top names.
When it comes down to art it’s important to expand one’s horizons in order to grow. You can tell Seiki is a hip hop artist, but at the same time you can listen to his music and pick up on the fact that he doesn’t strictly listen to one style because there’s a tone of diversity in his music, along with a trademark mellow flow set to a beat that conveys the emotion of the lyrics. He takes it very seriously and puts forth a tremendous amount of energy that keeps him busy, but at the same time, is able to have fun with it.
For Seiki, it’s not about money or fame, though he projects that image in his performances. Instead, it extends deeper into a genuine love of what he does. And, of course, it’s largely about his fans and supporters. He tries to stay in contact with his fans and uses his voice to make a difference. It’s evident that his style is “confidence,” not “ego.” That’s what makes him special, what makes him stand out, and it’s that same overall attitude of modesty that is taking him straight to the top.
Though there are some who are not quite familiar with the name Seiki, it’s only a matter of time before it’s on the tongues of every hip hop enthusiast around the globe. There are a lot of people who focus on mainstream instead of giving a listen to an artist they’ve never heard of before. But hey, remember that Tupac had to start somewhere, right?
