My Thoughts on the The Zimmerman Verdict


After the verdict this weekend I have heard many insensitive comments including the same ol’ same ol’ “get over it”. We don’t need to get over it we need to deal with it, deal with these racial issues in real substantive way, real discussions that means there will be some cussing some anger but it is well past time that people discuss the racial history of this country in diverse groups and in a brutally honest way. The unequal access to education and the unequally in the justice system that brought the feelings of this weekend to the surface. Because the reality is these feelings have been under the surface since the last highly publicized unjust verdict which was almost 21 years ago. The Rodney King verdict didn’t set the stage for this but was just a conformation of what went on before the height in the civil rights movement and during and sadly after. To sum my thoughts up on this whole thing is we keep hearing about how America is supposed to be a melting pot that has not fully come to fruition until we deal with each other in real way and realize that we as one nation can not make it without one another………………..

THE UNDERGROUND EXPERIENCE 11-12-012


This months feature is a strong willed and focused femcee putting two areas on her back lets roll out with Boobie Monroe………

boobie monroe pic 2 THE UNDERGROUND EXPERIENCE 11 12 012

Mistajay: What is the story and conception behind your emcee name?

Boobie Monroe: Boobie was a nick name given to me by someone very special so I decided to run with it… Not until a year later making that my stage name I added the Monroe for the edge factor. The well know vixen Marilyn Monroe was the furthest thing from my mind


Mistajay: What area are you reppin?

Boobie Monroe: I mean the diamond from the rough is from Cleveland so I definitively gotta put that on my back… But im here to rep Broward County in South FLA… since it’s never been put on the map thus far, watch me do just that.


Mistajay: What are your influences of your music? And what inspires you?

Boobie Monroe: The simple fact that the talent won’t allow me to put it to rest. I am an artist that eats, sleeps, and breathes my craft. That’s what keeps me out of trouble. I’m too busy being productive. The thing that inspires me and keeps me fighting for my dreams is the void that the female gender in the general public lacks. This still gives me the confidence you see before you.

Mistajay: How do you describe your style?

Boobie Monroe: My style is unique. I’ve been compared to a lot of women are and were talented and talent less. The question is can there sound be compare to mine. I’m in my own lane when it comes to my sound one of a kind sound and distinguished. My style is effortless, free, and fun but most definitively controlled

Mistajay: You built a strong buzz and got noticed by executives at Universal Music Group (UMG) with your single “I Hate My Baby Daddy”. If you don’t consider your what is your best song recorded to date and why?

Boobie Monroe: I was grateful for that record because it was responsible for my first radio spins that led to other ventures which put me in the right place to present my package. My best to song to date has to be a song I did with Dr. Dre. I recorded it at his studio which was amazing in it self and being able to meet him was pretty cool. The record was called “Back N Da Dayz”. I really, really, love that record for what it exudes. The song was about the Inner city challenge I faced as a little girl being introduce and put up on G at a young age therefore making me a sponge, soaking up all the game at a young age. It also describes what wanted out of life and why I never had a limit or cap on my expectations. The songs speaks on everything in a nutshell and lets you into my life and factual experiences that hit very close to home, the song is hiphop, so inner city real.

Mistajay: You have worked with Grammy nominated producer/songwriter Mario Winans and worked with Jive recording artist/songwriter Miguel. If you could share the stage with any other 3 artists or bands who are still around and touring, who would they be and why?

Boobie Monroe: Chris Brown would be one. He is really great at what he does, Drake, also is another artist consistently dropping bangers back to back. Lastly, I would want to perform with Rick Ross. He put in work for years, trying to break thru here in South Florida and he did it, like I soon will too. I respect that grind.


Mistajay: Where do you see the hip hop going in 2012? How do you see yourself fitting into that?

Boobie Monroe: Hip Hop is dying out as other trends are evolving. Hip Hop is a part of my culture, so I definitively fit in naturally. Besides, I just act like a lady and think like a man on a lot. So I act after viewing both perspectives which sets me apart, I’m all about respect. I give it and I get it

Mistajay: What are your future plans?

Boobie Monroe: I want to start my own label for artist with free spirit and want to help the minds of music listeners to find the truth no matter how much it hurts. I have a few brands I wanna get involved. A huge potion will come out of my business ventures and endorsements to start my nonprofit organization. My main one would be a center for displaced batter women, children and men. I know it sounds crazy saying men but women can be the abuser and many husbands have to flee. Everyone story is unique. It’s imperative that we respect that.

Mistajay: Any last thoughts?

Boobie Monroe: Just wanna shout out to everybody reading and who have had involvement in my project. I appreciate all the love from my old and new fans. I want it to be known that Boobie Monroe wanna be a role model for women of all ages. I feel like theirs a large void of role models for female because of the actions of different women in the entertainment world. The one word that I want to define my whole career is Respect. I want to represent the idea that women should be shown respect and by showing integrity as leaders, artists, educators, peace keepers, etc… Respect is the banner and flag I will continue swing with every move I make for all women.  Thanks for inquiring

Mistajay: Where can fans follow you and get your music?

Introduction


Following off of Prince Imperial’s intro post, allow me to introduce myself….. the name is 5th Letter… the reason for the name is because the 1st letter of my 1st name is E…. that’s kinda lazy I know, but I just stuck with it…. I come from Fayetteville, NC which is where I got my start in hip hop circa ‘93… but right now I’m in Eglin AFB, FL… I had dabbled in writing before that, but around then was the first time i really tried to put it to music… been hooked ever since… I’ve worked with a ton of different artists & producers… first & foremost my Empire fam (Prince Imperial, Mista Jay, & Speak No Evil), QB (CO), Mic Will (VA), Ground Zero (Shamrocc & DOS)(Fayetteville, NC), Vintage (Hampton VA), Rik Marvel (Fayetteville, NC), Lil’ D of F.It Entertainment (FL), Soulstarr (Fayetteville, NC), William Munny (Vallejo, CA), and there’s probably more… my album “A Long Time Coming” is currently in work… it was originally slated for release on December 15th, 2008, but now it’s lookin more like December 29th, 2008 or January 5th, 2009… the recording process is crazy… but it’s comin, I promise… Alright, that’s all I got… *takes off mic & walks off set*

Peace.

Backlash


When I observe what’s popular & what’s not in the music industry right now, I kinda wonder if the type of album I’m working on will cost me in the long run.  I mean, as far as hip-hop goes, popularity seems to rest with those either making dance songs, lovey-dovey rap tunes, singing in autotune, or just the typical “gangsta” shit. My album doesn’t fall into any of those categories.  Now, of course, there are exceptions who become known just off the strength of good music.  But there’s not alot of them.  So, I’m anxious to see if my approach to my album will hinder my ability to move units.  Time will tell, I guess.  

Peace.
