Moné - 'The God Complex 2: The Conquest of Monesa Musa' Interview

Amanda Giordano

Why did you make this album?

I made this album to God up everyone who is ready to step into their excellence. It is only then change things. 

What inspired the title 'The God Complex 2: The Conquest of Monesa Musa'?

The God Complex album, the one prior to this was more of a coming of age album driven by the need to change a society that existed prior to us. The God Complex 2 is more of a guide to inner peace, and self awareness from our most basic needs to self actualization. The conquest of Monesa Musa is the rich spiritual connection that I have with the universe. The goal is to give these jewels bestowed upon me of a greater understanding to win the hearts of listeners with purpose and intent to be the best version of themselves to change the world. 

If you could do remix to one song on the album and anyone as your guest feature, what song what it would be and who would you have on it?

J. Cole on Tek Care would be dope. 

Who helped make this album what it is? Writers, Producers, Muses, Support System, Etc

There are 2 producers on the album @saintbeliev3 on 'Wishing' and @apmg_kimogod made all the rest. It took ten hours to complete the beats and recording for this album in an insane music session that should've been videotaped lol

What is your favorite track?

My fave track to perform is 'Don't Call the PoPo Ho' but my fave track to listen to I can't decide, they all mean something different to me and are equally fire in their own way. 


What is your goal as an artist?

My goal is to make people think about what we should be instead of accepting what is just for the sake of following the norm. There is so much potential once we really take care of ourselves and thinking for ourselves. But the goal is a utopian planet even if I wont be around to see it. 

When did you know you wanted to make music?

I started making music at age 7. I just always knew this is what I'm put here for. Ive worked at it relentlessly since then. 


What is your dream now that you just accomplished this dream?

My dream is to build a village. An example if you will of self sufficiency completely free of government influence, structure, or hindrance. I just dream of the day I'm fully FREE.

Have you ever been Stereotype'd? Tell us more.

As an openly lesbian female rapper everyone expects me to spit aggressively, talk about gangster issues, guns, drugs, all that stuff everybody else is on. Then they get this super awake social lyricist with flow and a totally different sound and every time the look they give me is one of awe. I can tell they 

didn't expect to hear this.

Have you ever broke a Stereotype someone had of you?

I break stereotypes people have of me everyday. I guess from my looks and the way I dress people expect this super hardcore chick to come off aggressive and 'manly' but Im really just down to earth and mad chill. My whole life is spent tryna catch the right vibe at the right moment so thats how I live out my "freedom" lolol. Ima happy, helpful, soul just trying to laugh and free my people. 

What advice would you give to something that is looking to pursuit their dreams?

You gotta be 100% in it. I tried the 50/50, trust me that don't work. You gotta be about it, live, eat, and be honest with yourself and the grind. But if you gonna do it... you really gotta do it WHOLE HEARTEDLY.
