Here comes the independent super emcee. Yeah dear reader, M-Dot got what it takes to make the difference in this Hip Hop game, with the indie taste. I had the pleasure to play a lot of his joints during my radioshow, so I had to make it happen : trying to see how cool is Mdot ! And of course, yall gotta show some luv to the man on his twitter !
1) The coolest words to introduce yourself ?
2) The coolest thing in the place you come from ?
Well in a literal sense….The weather has been pretty cool/cold this winter (most recorded snow in Boston history) hahaa. No complaints tho where used to it. But to answer your question, I’d say if your in the Bean its a must to try and go to Fenway Park (regardless of digging baseball), its a historic field and has the cities heart beat, especially when games are going on. For food, anywhere in the North Shore, you gotta have a roast beef sandwich. Nowhere does it better I promise
3) The coolest place you been at thanks to music touring ?
I’ve Been to so many countries over the years for shows. Tough to say a favorite. All were unique. One that pops in mind though as I read question is Montreux (Switz). It’s like a little hidden paradise. Cool part is I had a show about an hour from it in another city, and we went there solely to shoot a music video the next full day. So I really got to take it in. For those that haven’t heard of it or been there, it’s a beautiful city on the water and hosts all the Jazz festival (has for very long time). Also where Chaplin went to live after not being allowed back in the states.
4) The coolest thing to know about your upcoming album ?
Inside the title my name happens to be spelled out perfectly (never using a letter twice) : ‘egO anD The eneMy’
5) Two cool things to reveal about M-Dot in studio ?
I take hours often just to record one verse. Want it perfect as I can get it, don’t care how long it takes. I have that luxury though as I have my own studio.
2nd thing…. Can’t check phone or Internet till song is complete (that’s a self discipline, I don’t impose that on my crew lol although they usually follow suit).
6) The coolest feature you could imagine for an upcoming M-Dot’s single ?
For spitters…Redman. Always been mega fan. His Flow, character, style, never disappoints. Mos Def too!! For singers man Aloe Black is dope. John Legend….
7) The totally not cool thing in this hiphop game nowadays ?
Iggy and her fake rap accent does hurt the ears truly hahah. Nah I don’t care or ever complain. If we want change it takes us all cohesively working harder, not worrying bout what mainstream is doing seemingly wrong and in contrast us trying to create genuine original music. It can break thru but that’s up to us. Kendrick is on right path for rap.
8) The cool thing you could do if you weren’t a musician ?
Be a fireman. Got in (after taking test) bout 7 yrs ago right after school. Also maybe coaching basketball, as I still play currently and had a scholarship for college. Who knows tho. HahAA !!
9) The coolest thing my readers can do if they want to support your work ?
Don’t follow me… walk beside me!!
Appreciate all the support ya’ll. Anything I put out that you share with others I am thankful for.
10) Any last cool words ?
Rest in peace Earl aka Praverb.
