MC Mont, who was first known as Pe$o Mont and Money Mont, is an artist born in Michigan City, Indiana but moved to Atlanta at the age of 5. He has various of influences ranging from Young Thug, Future, and Drake. He got his foot in the door as a local producer at the age of 14 before slowly crafting his own sound at the age of 18. By the time he graduated high school, he created his first mixtape. Coming up, MC Mont had to self-teach himself everything he knew before he caught the eyes of a professional who helped enhance his skills and knowledge of production. MC Mont is now 21 years old and is searching for more opportunities to better his craft and meet and collaborate with new creative innovative musicians.
MC Mont released his single titled “Focus”, featuring artist Edub. "Focus” sounds like something we could most definitely hear on the radio. It has this trendy hip-hop sound we so used to clubbing and dancing too, we automatically find ourselves getting hooked on the groove of it. “Focus” has vocals that reminds us of MC Mont's influences, including Future and Young Thug. The raspy and brittle sound complemented by some autotune is what we noticed in the song and we were completely hypnotized by it! We enjoyed the lyricism in this song more than anything. From what we’ve interpreted by listening, "Focus" reflects on themes including dedication, determination, and hustling for your dream and what you want in life. Who doesn’t love a good song that has us encouraged to attain our goals in life? With a head nodding beat, MC Mont was able to develop a substantial uplifting message in a trap sounding record that’s perfectly digestible to the taste buds of today’s generation and lovers of hip-hop.
