Hip-hop is evolving right now.  Artist such as Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Talib Kweli, and Nas are keeping hip-hop authentic. There is a lot of new talent who make the industry very interesting.
If you could change anything about Hip Hop right now, what would it be?
I would like rappers to speak about something more real than the TV screen. We need to break the cycle of glorifying violence and drug use.  Talented artist can rap about anything beside the latest trends.

I'm working with Nabeyin from California and TMZ from Detroit.  They both have dope sounds.
What can listeners expect to hear on your forthcoming LP titled All Black?
All Black will give listeners a taste of real hip-hop.  I will express my raw emotions and thought patterns.

Interview with Rising New York Rapper Mono Bagends

Rising New York rapper Mono Bagends, recently sat down with us here at Boom Bap Universe for an exclusive one on one interview to discuss his views on Hip Hop.  This artist once worked closely with popular late 90s/ Early 2000s Boom Bap Beatmaker DR Period (the man responsible for crafting such hits as Cam'ron's "Hey Ma", M.O.P.'s "Ante Up", AZ's "I'm Back" and a boatload of other bangers!), and Mono Bagends has even once shared the stage with Remy Ma in the past!  Now, Mono Bagends has a single out by the name of "On Fire" and while this song may not be a traditional Boom Bap record, it is still hot nonetheless.  Check out our interview with the talented artist below.

Could you tell the readers a little something about you and the music you make?
 I am Brooklyn born emcee who has been doing this for 12 years.  I make positive inspirational music and dance club type music. I used to make raunchy type music but I changed that up and don't even curse when I rap anymore. I believe you can do anything you want in life if you dedicate yourself.
What is your opinion on the current state of Hip Hop?
It is very watered down. There aren't too many lyricists out there anymore.
What do you think could change Hip Hop for the better?  
If record labels started putting money behind people who have talent and not just what numbers they put up and how many twitter followers they have. To achieve greatness one has to take a chance.
Where do you see Hip Hop going, at least within these next  5 years?
It's hard to say....everything in the music business is cyclical. Hopefully, there will be some fresh new faces with new ideas and not just copy catting off the next artist.
Who are some of your favorite emcees from back in the day?
DMX, Nas, Mac from No Limit, Big Pun, Tupac and Biggie.
In a previous interview you stated that you've worked with Boom Bap beatmaker/ producer D.R. Period in the past, but you said that it wouldn't make sense to work with him moving forward because of it wouldn't match your current sound.... would you consider re-releasing a remixed and edited version of your old material with your new sound?
It's a possibility. We'll see what happens.
In your opinion who is iller Pete Rock or DJ Premier?
Pete Rock....both are dope.
Who is one of your favorite golden age/ Boom Bap beatmakers?
Pete Rock
Do you have any last words?
I want to thank you for the interview and let all my fans know to hit me up at any of the social media outlets and my website I always find the time to answer people. If you like an artist support the artist by buying there music from legitimate outlets....bootlegging is killing the music game
