Emcee Monte continued, “I am a positive artist, my music is clean and uplifting. I do not promote violence, drugs, misogyny or any other negative images and stereotypes that have been associated with rap and the hip hop culture in the past. I feel it’s very important, now more than ever, that we use the forum and platform that we have as artists to bring positivity and progress to our community and to work toward a lasting change in perception and reality for the world as a whole.”
