Featured artist: Moe Da Prophet – Unsigned hype with Moe Da Prophet
Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Moe Da Prophet.
How did you decide to become an artist?
Moe Da Prophet: Well hip hop was always around me through out my life especially when I was about 7 I used to record myself with my moms camera of me lip syncing 2pac songs and other emcees like Big L. Ever since then I eventually started writing my own songs when I was in 6th grade. Me and one of my good friends used to stay up all night writing and then perform them to each other on the bus on our way to school. That’s pretty much when I stuck to it, I wasn’t even thinking about making money off of it I just loved it and I’m still that way until now.
”God gave you a gift so don’t waste it, you got talent”
What about concerts? Do you play live?
Currently working on performing at local spots.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
I already know where I’m headed these haters gonna see the unexpected cause ma flow is a weapon its makin them jealous they might need to call up medic
What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?
Right now I’m currently working on a mixtape that will release next month so look out for that its gonna have a lot of dope underrated Chicago rappers on it
Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I would but would prefer a distribution deal because I want to still have a lot of control of my own music and my label which is UNDERDOG MUSIC. I see so many rappers get signed and change their whole style just for some fame and I’m not going to be like that because money ain’t everything. I want to have freedom with my music pretty much, that’s all I ask for.
Any last words?
First off shoutout to my city CHICAGO! Shoutout to all my underdogs out there and my family including my homies that always been there for me, you know who you are.
