Team Sal Develops 1500 Movement and Preps For Charity Event


By: Julz Mancini

There are some artists who fully embody the hip hop culture and utilize their voices to inspire the community that surrounds them. From the early age of 9 years old, Team Sal fell in love with battle rap and became well known around Scranton, PA for his witty word play and metaphors. Battling the "top guys" around proved to everyone that Team Sal had what it takes to make it in the cut throat industry. Team Sal states that life experiences developed him into a more versatile music artist and prepared him for entrepreneurship.

Last year Team Sal lost 100% vision leaving him completely blind. Instead of giving up, he became stronger and more focused. Developing the “1500” movement with his brother Flee assisted other artists around the area in obtaining a voice in the music scene. “1500” was named after the block they all grew up on in East Scranton, PA. 

“Welcome to 1500”, a mixtape, was released in September of last year and sent shockwaves through the city. “Don’t Leave Me Out” was a single Team Sal released which featured 10k, a well known rapper. Meels Millie, Kapo, Henny Black, and Darlito are all members of 1500 and work together like a well oiled machine. 

On August 28th, Team Sal along with the team 1500 will be hosting the, “1500 Warriors Scranton Giveaway Charity Bash”. Working with prominent voices in the community, Team Sal was able to put this event together in hopes of giving back to the community that looks to him for inspiration. As a blind rapper, Team Sal walks without a cane and commands his whole movement. He has performed at venues such as Encore in Wilkes-Barre, PA, the Father’s Day Festival, to name a few. 

Be sure to come out on August 28th for a great cause. Follow Team Sal and the 1500 movement! Don’t forget to stream his music and follow him for the remainder of his music journey. He will undoubtedly touch your heart with his music and story!
