We were fortunate enough to talk ish with Rap Artist…Teemonee!!! Teemonee has been been making a name for himself all throughout the streets of New York and is on the rode to making a name for himself all over the world. Teemonee is not just a rap artist that speaks on things he’s been through but he’s also a director and photographer so he’s also capturing the moment. Let’s get to know Teemonee…
3 Voices: Introduce yourself to the world. Let the people know who Teemonee is and what Teemonee does.
Teemonee: What’s good y’all, as you may know I go by the name Teemonee. I find myself to be an awesome dude from New York, doing awesome shit that you could find on my Instagram @Teemonee, ha.. Artist/Photographer/Director, so when you’re ready to shoot, just say “ACTION!”.
3 Voices: What inspired you to become a rap artist? Who are some rap artists that have influenced your career?
Teemonee: I always used rap to put me at ease. Back when I first started creating “Teestyles”, they were mainly composed of the problems that I have to deal with, or what positive situations I’ve been in lately, ETC. I’ve been a social person, but never one to just throw my problems at everyone looking for sympathy, so I started to put the “real deal” into music, and here I am today. A few artists have influenced my career, but with the way I’ve been doing things, and the legacy I’d like to have, I’d have to say Jadakiss being my favorite artist has the most influence on my career.
3 Voices: Describe your style of rap. What are some things that you talk about in your music? What makes Teemonee stand out from other artists?
Teemonee: If I had to choose a category to put my music into, it would definitely be “lifestyle” rap. With the way that I release my tracks, I’m easily able to talk about what goes on daily. For everything that’s rapped about on my tracks, there’s always a significant situation to verify that. My music is mainly composed of things that I go through, and I know so many people can relate because in reality, we’re not much different from each other.
3 Voices: Tell us about your latest EP: The Word Around New York. What can music lovers expect for your EP? What’s your favorite single from The Word Around New York?
Teemonee: Depending on the type of music you’re into, The Word Around New York can be extremely dope, or just not for you. I try to mix in a little different vibe from me, I feel as if most people are used to that real life, New York City hip-hop feel from me, and I switched up on a track or 2. My favorite single from the project is definitely “Shit, I’m Like Word” featuring my brother Sumnlite. That track is just too hard for cheap speakers. And that track made it to my favorites simply because that’s not a style that I do often, and when I created that one morning, I just woke up like “yo, this is it!”.
3 Voices: What’s next for Teemonee? Are there any exclusives you can share with us?
Teemonee: Up next, I’ve got a few more EP’s under my wraps right now, ready to be released whenever I feel it’s necessary, so plenty new music on the way. Getting booked for a lot more shows lately, so nothing but progression these days. — I’m attaching “Shit, I’m Like Word’ for y’all!
