Emcee Monte's newest EP- "Change Gone Come" is streaming everywhere. The EP is filled with classic cut samples, hard edge funk beats and rhymes about being black in America. His flow is of the legends from Q-Tip to Jay-Z, old school rappers like Easy-E and Chuck D. This is one of the funkiest releases of the year, sampling vintage R&B/Soul tracks like Sam Cook- "A Change Is Gonna Come" and Michael Jackson- "They Don't Care About Us". Emcee Monte has a masterful way with the mic, smooth as anyone lyrically, a wordsmith in the age of current chaos. He raps about growing up, poetry of modern culture, stylish and fresh wordplay over bass pounding hiphop beats. "Change Gone Come" looks to shed light on how the fight for Civil Rights connects directly to the Black Lives Matter Movement.

I do not promote violence, drugs, misogyny or any other negative images and stereotypes that have been associated with rap and the hip hop culture in the past. I feel it’s very important, now more than ever, that we use the forum and platform that we have as artists to bring positivity and progress to our community and to work toward a lasting change in perception and reality for the world as a whole."
