black music and hip hop is something well known in my area,we have many bands and groups here in cotonou,and we know many comin from europe coz we get big HIP-HOP FESTIVAL here and some big events to promote black musik.

C: What do you think about mp3?
mp3 is a good for promotion,it is fast but at same time it don`t make money for artists beaucause it is allways free.and give hand to piracy.

C: And about women in hip-hop and black music?
women are good and important in hip-hop and black musik,somethin shit on that is their appearence as sex machines,artists always used them as sex machine on their video ,removing all their value as women,mother of the world.

no but some videos and black musik represent the reallity

C: In which way you live hip-hop?
i live from my music,or i will say my music make survive,i`m a big hustler,u no here in africa we do not have opportunities as in europe or in america.it is our fuckin mentality,and i`ll recognise that some time we are not professional in our wayz of doing thing.promoters sometimes do not respect their engagements.after a show they run away with your paiement,is so difficult to live with music,especially hip-hop which is not well accepted by the communities,parents…but i try my best playing on some show,dealing cd`s as well as is possible

C: Tell me something about clubs and radios in your city.
in my areas there are many clubs and fm radio station,but most of time mc ask u for money to promote your music,even when you pay for ,the promotion is not as well as to make you fame as you wanna be,my self i worked for radio long time ago.that time a have promotion beacause it was like and exchange.i worked free and my boss paid me with promotion,u get what i mean.
