Artist Spotlight: TheSeKondElement, Returns

After a brief hiatus from music, TheSeKondElement returns, refreshed and ready to go. We've been featuring her work on the site for sometime now and I’ve always dug her style. She goes deeper with that more than surface level rap. College education and full of ambition, with roots in spoken word, TheSekondElement is out to say something important. You should definitely listen. She goes international with her latest featuring London emcee, Jai and produced by UK producer, Poetree. Check out the track and get to know TheSekondElement a little more after the jump. Chea!

Your music described in one word: Damn.

If you were stranded on an island, which ONE record would you bring with you and why: The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. It’s balance for me.

The track that best showcases who you are as an emcee: “Can’t You Hear It?” [or so I’ve been told]

Biggest Moment So Far For You With Your Music: Possibly winning Album of the Year & all the other accolades my debut album received in New Orleans. That was major because that was the furthest thing from my intent. Getting that award was way better than any other for me because of what that body of work and albums in general mean to me. When I really reflect, I’d say definitely that.

Impact You Want to Have on Your Audience: I want to influence people to learn and have a desire to learn. Whether it’s about Hip-Hop culture, Sickle Cell Disease, or their own family history. Learning causes growth. We should always be learning.
