Issa’s a 19 year old artist from Sacramento that caught our attention last week. He has a message for listeners seeking truth within hip hop. His rhythm and rhetoric have been refined through pain, urban war, loss and resilience. His elastic message touches on mental health within the youth, the insecurities within masculinity and many other societal complexities that are amplified within under-represented communities. The organic creativity and understanding allows him to perpetuate a flow that is guided by a dark reflection of himself and his environment. In the new year of 2017, Issa and the flycircle team prepare a series of projects and collaborations that will help portray this societal dissonance. Details and announcements for upcoming releases can be found on any of his social media outlets @themicmessiah.

Listen to Issa’s 90.3FM radio session below and peep some raw footage of him further down. Kid is crazy fire. SAC GOT TALENT.

I grew up in Sacramento in a time where there was no young entertainment company like HOF to look up to. I met Tony in LA while I was managing LBCK in Long Beach. I kind of knew Damian from middle school. And I didn't know Byron even though we went to the same middle school. But when we first started partying together in 2011, it just made sense for me...someone who's passionate about the business side of music...to align with them...who're passionate about the business side of events. I believe what I'm doing here...running the site and the social media and the artist management/publicity and the label...is creating a means to better spotlight and support the emerging artists we truly believe in. They say no one's ever "made it" out of Sacramento. It's my ultimate mission to change that. As our boy Marcus says, "We're bringing Sacramento to The World...and we're bringing The World to Sacramento."
