Q: What made you decide that you wanted to become a rapper?

Shun Monroe:  I’ve always loved music since I was younger.  Me, and some of my family use to sit in the room, and rap 2 bars each lol.  I use to dance as well, and when Ciara made “Goodies” she became my idol .. and music pretty much followed me.

 

Q:  Who were some of your biggest influences as you were coming up?

Shun Monroe: Ciara was definitely the 1st and biggest influence that music had on me.

 

Q:  Can you recall the very first song that you ever wrote?

Shun Monroe: The very 1st song I wrote was when I was like 16. I had started this group called Selfmade Misses.  I was the only rapper, the other two girls was singers.  It was a dope song but in order to do the group thing everyone has to be on the same page.

 

Q:  Do you feel that it’s harder for a female to make it in the music game being that it’s male dominant?

Shun Monroe: Sometimes I don’t feel like it’s harder for a female because having beauty, dope music, and able to talk your way through a lot of things make it easier, but being a female artist with little support & not having sex to get it then yeah.

 

Q: If you could work with any mainstream artist, who would it be, and why?

Shun Monroe:  I’ve always wanted to work with T.I., we’re both from Bankhead Courts, and his music is just real Atlanta.  It tells a story, and Meek Mill as well, I just like his vibe & they way he delivers.

 

Q: What do want to accomplish as an upcoming female in the music game?

Shun Monroe: I want to be able to bring the old Atlanta music back. When we had Knuck if you buck, laffy taffy, etc life was just more calmer and simpler. I want to become international, I want to be able to go to a theme park, and hear my song. I want to be big, I want to sell out every show, be a mentor to the female artist who feels it’s hard to get through. I just want to inspire people, females mainly.

 

Q:  What can we expect from Shun Monroe in 2018?

Shun Monroe:  Honestly I’m figuring it all out as of right now I’m just looking to keep pushing. A lot had changed since back then, now a days it doesn’t even be about your talent it’s about who can bring out the most people so right how I’m just figuring it out.

 

Q:  Any last comments that you want to make?

Shun Monroe:  I just have to say for females who are during music, it takes a lot of patience, time, and money, so be prepared, and keep your head up.
