Biography

In a day and age where everyone wants to be a rapper very few emerge as hip hop artists. Mont is part of the latter. Born in Franklin, TN to a father who was a DJ, Orlando Lamont Mclemore has music in his blood and wanted to be a rapper since he was 9 years old. Though loving to freestyle in the lunch room at at school, Mont more enjoyed rapping on the street corners where the hustlers would pay him just to spit a verse before moving on to write and record songs at 15.

Inspired to be one of if not the top MC in the game he works hard at crafting his flow to the style that it is today and still growing. Easily seen as a Backpack Rapper using complex rhyme schemes, Mont will also deliver a simplistic flow if he feels that it’s what the track calls for. Rather than finding a catchy hook and just throwing songs together Mont takes the subject and paint a picture from beginning to end. The way he mixes underground hip hop with mainstream, has had him compared to rap juggernauts like Jay-Z and Eminem.

Though carrying a captivating flow with hard hitting punchline, Mont prides himself on his storytelling abilities focusing on his life and upbringing. While life in the streets drug dealing and gang banging is nothing new to the hip hop community, Mont chooses to reflect on what he has learned from it rather than glorify it giving in depth detail of situations that shaped into the man that he is today.
