What’s your full name and where are you from?
Mohamed Mouhamed, born in Cairo,Egypt. I came to the US at the age of 8, and grew up in Jersey City and Avenel.
What makes you different as a person?
Realness is a motto and foundation I live by and incorporate into every aspect of my life and definitely also into my music. As an artist I like to extract my lines directly from real life experiences, thoughts, feelings, and opinions. It’s only a matter of putting everything together in the flow and style that I am aiming for. So everything around me really becomes an inspiration to me in a way where I just translate into my own lyrical but very much easily conveyable language. This makes me more relatable and reachable as an artist and it also creates diversity in my work. Genuineness is something I like to make sure is reflected in my lyrics, my work, and who I am in general. I like to be as authentic as I can be so I always make sure my personality is clear and put out there in a way where anything I do resounds with the people around me and my audiences.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Right now I’m definitely laying the foundations for my future work and goals. in five years I’d love to have mastered my art of words even more. I would like to continue to learn, read, and explore different ideas and ways of putting words together to put out the kind of music and art that I do. Over the years I’d love to drop albums that provide my audience with more and more insight into who I am and what I can grow into as an artist and human being. In five years, I’d love to be performing to people who have found entertainment, meaning, and connections with my music in a way that resounds with everyone in their own unique way.
What do you bring to the music world?
The past decade has brought in such an influx of so many new artists and with that came the mainstream desire to achieve the “rapper” or artist image. It seems so easy to me nowadays to quickly spread your art regardless of the quality and what it is only if you know how to establish a following. For me, I choose to still stick with the original principle of talent and I have carried that with me from the beginning in the years where hip hop was not even mainstream yet. The art of putting together words that generate certain feelings, thoughts, opinions, experiences, or certain messages is something that I will put out and continue to master. I am confident that doing this gives me that type of advantage to break into and put out my unique work into the music world.
