Discuss your personality.

Well not everyone believes in astrology and Zodiac stuff….but I do, and I am the most extreme Gemini I think you would ever meet. I am very caring and I sacrifice myself for anyone who can benefit from me, but once you have crossed a line of betrayal or disrespect I would completely disregard your existence as something worth cherishing. I would probably spare an ant that I step on the sidewalk before I spare you and your family….and most of that is struck with the protection factor of…don’t come for anybody I care for and let’s all love each other.

Brief us about you as a musician.

As a musician I like to believe that I am diverse. Or at least as diverse as my music playlists. On average I jam out to Stevie Wonder, UGK, Big Krit, The Gorillaz, Paramore, and Corinne Bailey Rae. And with my dad being exceptionally old I grew up on a lot of Motown and old school Kompa and Gospel music. So with all that mixed in my music heartbeat I learned to express my story and emotions through those melodies and styles…I really hate being compared to any other artist, especially India or Lauryn just because I had dreads and play guitar. If you heard at least one of my songs you’ll realize it’s like comparing cereal to cornbread…they both start with C.

Go into details on what have changed in your life for choosing music as a career.

Well I’m a multi-college drop out single mother whose life just keeps getting saved by music. By the time I graduate high school I was able to leave one of the worst neighborhoods in Baton Rouge LA to one of the top schools in the country all on a hip-hop scholarship. Left that school and went to LSU. Left there went to Delgado….like it’s so much but each transition progressed my music career so it’s like the calm within my storm. It keeps me steady and everyone is telling me to go so I think I’d be a fool not to listen!

Tell us the benefits and drawbacks of choosing music as a career.

Ummm…I got mouths to feed but even before that was a responsibility of mine, and I’m talking way before my son, it was the only thing that satisfied me. I started off playing the sax and began to write music in the 5th grade and that is what kept me sane from bullying and bullshit. The drawbacks are your privilege, if you are blessed with the resources to really launch a career it’s easy to get noticed quick, but as for me I’m self and mentor taught, if I wasn’t blessed with people who saw something in me and helped me then I would’ve been SOL, and I know a lot of people with talent who just need the resources.

Tell us how you will manage fame as an established artist.

I know I wouldn’t be flashy and I would always keep my roots. Probably travel and link up with artists that are in the position I am in now and work with them. Give someone a chance I wish someone would give to me right now…and donate to Hella charities.

Elaborate on the story line of this song.

“Daughter” is basically my current warning tag. I had a girl who tried to fight me because her man was messing round with me….well long story short I pulled a blade and she went to the cops…“basically bitch just leave me alone it don’t have to go there but now imma taunt you”.

.

.

.

Tell us means of connecting you and purchasing your music online.

Well I’m very active on Instagram and Snapchat; I reply back to all that contact me in hope to work with more artists so hit me up at mojofree on snap and mojo_Free on Instagram. For any serious business or special features, you could always email me at monisha.freeman@yahoo.com. But as far as my music all my old music is on Soundcloud and Youtube under the same name (mojofree). But my recent work, “Coloring Book”, is available on iTunes and more platforms soon.

.

Let us know the greatest moment of your music career.

I think the greatest moment hasn’t happened yet and it won’t happen until I get to collaborate with some of those I dream of working with like Stevie Wonder, Young Nudy, or Anita Baker.

.

.

.

Tell us the highest amount of money you have ever received from your music career and how it happened.

$5; I was in the park with my guitar case open just chilling and some guy really vibed out with me.

.

.

.

Discuss your experience pertaining live performances, gigs, shows and tours.

Well I love to get very personally with my audience and really express the emotions in the song. I talk to the audience and make sure I leave a piece of me with them. I often try to bring new unheard material to each performance so it’s always a sneak peek of where I’m headed next. Plus, I give the inspiration to most songs I perform.

.

.

.

Tell us how you relate with your fans.

I give them me all of me and I become an open book-consensual.

.

.

.

Tell us the most important people that have boosted your music career and how you met them.

Most definitely my high school English teacher Mrs. Matens; she’s the one who first recognized my poetry and made me share it…. she made me believe in myself in a place where I had given hope and sparked me to write music again…if it was for that first year of high school I probably would be hating my life right now.

.

.

.

Brief us on what you have in mind before considering music as a career.

Opening a homeless shelter that trained homeless people with vet tech and other medical skills to get them jobs…I still have it as a goal.

.

.

.

Discuss your good and bad experience in life.

My pregnancy was the best and worst time of my life. I nearly died and lost my son, but at the end I have my king and we are both healthy now I was well over 200 pounds and started to have seizures after birth. I started contractions at 5 months and I was experiencing the worst effects of my mental illness. However, going through that got me on the proper medication, I’m the healthiest I ever been, and I’m a kickass mom.

.

.

.

Name the artists that have influenced the world.

Most definitely Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, The Gorillaz, The Beatles, Marvin Gaye, Whitney…I may just stop there.

.

.

.

Tell us about your moment of rejections as a musician and how you are able to cope and move on.

Well music has given me the worst heart breaks. I have had songs and lyrics stolen, I have had family tell me pursuing this was a waste of time, I have been turned down so many times for countless opportunities, so I just fuel it to create more and prove the doubters wrong, it’s like a drug to me now.

.

.

.

Tell us the most negative comment you have ever received about your music.

You are a better singer than a rapper.

.

.

.

Tell us how to become a famous artist.

Prayer and hustle, dreams don’t become reality without action and when you have God behind your things just seem to align in a way that seems like magic.

.

.

.

Tell us how you plan to make an impact on the society.

I plan to travel and do charity work for the rest of my life so I just need the money to do it. I plan on teaching people how to preserve the earth for our future generations and work with the leaders who are trying to end the oppression on my people that is first priority.

.

Elaborate on the recording process of this song.

Well like all songs on this project, it was recorded on one night in a dorm room with my hollering son in the background. And this is just how raw I wanted this project to be and so I released all the energy in one sitting and in my struggle setting.
