“ life is about finding balance, you live, your try to find balance and then you die
The artist known as Monarch G ( @monarch__g ) Grew up around house parties that his dad would DJ and rap at. It's no wonder that old school hip hop culture was ingrained in him.
After 7 years in the Army, he decided it was time to get back to his creative roots and retire. You see, he started writing his own raps at 13 and developed the moniker Monarch G. Monarch representing his “social butterfly” personality and reminding himself the majestic like pride and standards he lives with. The G having many meanings, his last name, Gemini his zodiac sign and many other things that tie into the type of person he is and is becoming.
The things that really pushed him to make his own music is the desire to express himself and the lack of style and quality in the rap community that he was looking for. Abandoning the title “ rapper “ because of where the culture has led it, he identifies as a lyricist and reflects on his favorites like Ice Cube, J Cole and Snoop Dogg. ( he grew up on the west coast so that west coast style has a special place in his heart )
His writing process is similar to a poet, He often has a feeling that he tethers to a single word and then working on breaking down the emotion more clearly. Performing and recording can become challenging because you have to recreate that head space you had when you wrote the song. Its not always a pleasant place to visit.
No matter what life throws his way he stays adaptable and does everything he can to separate from others.
