HCM. How did you come by your stage name?
Monsta100. No secret that I’ve died before at age 3 from an severe asthma attack and believe to have reincarnated to become a Monster rap talent. Known for “entering” the studio booth and become an inhuman like creature. The 100 on the end is something everyone who come in contact with me views me as a 100% real individual.
HCM. When did you discover your love for music and what made you realize you wanted to pursuit a career in music?
Monsta100. I am the product of this way of life. Let’s define RAP “Resistant Against Police.” The idea of releasing those bottled up emotions and scenarios that transpires threw our existence is the very reason I feel in love with this sport. Seeing that my words can some how pay for me to open doors for those ones who walk beside me is the primary reason of “pursuing” a music career.
HCM. To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
Monsta100. I come from the real era of hip hop. Coming up listening to late 80’s and 90’s Music. But whenever I visit my mother she was on Scarface hard. So naturally I gravitated to those of the south. Always been a fan of underground southern dope music.
HCM. On your current release… How did you come up with the concept for this project?
Monsta100. On my latest Project “Day Off” a single written by me and produced by GodBodyBeatz, I was able to create a chemistry with my producer after working together for two years now. The concept to this song is something we mutually have in common which is not being on the clock at work physically but actually still working even on your off time.
HCM. What are some of your greatest challenges as an artist, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
Monsta100. My greatest challenges at the present moment is being focused and not letting minor setbacks effect my consistency. My greatest attribute is knowing how to listen and learn.
HCM. Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
Monsta100. Wanna thank my biggest supporters for “keeping” me full of love and positive energy. For not judging me for things I do.
