Montana Staxxx inspires others to break free of the mundane with new single ‘Freedom’
DENVER, CO – Lemonte Hall – AKA Montana Staxxx – is a veteran of the music industry whose penchant for telling it like it is has challenged listeners all over the world for many years. His style of music is soulful yet aggressive, with lyrics to his songs tackling some of the tougher issues of the world. That substantive music takes center stage with his latest single, “Freedom”.
Bouncing off a get-up-and-move kind of vibe, this soulful single features horns and other instruments to serve as a background for lyrics that challenge people to consider the things they value most in life. Montana said he wants the song to inspire people to let go of the more material things in life and instead turn to the long-lasting truly joyful moments and experiences that lead to a fulfilling life.
“It’s about telling people not to allow things like money and religion to track or hold you down,” Montana said. “That’s what those things do in the big scheme of things, but it’s not how you’re gonna get freedom. The only thing that can set you free is the truth, whatever that is for each person. Don’t allow these things to be stumbling blocks in your life to achieve real freedom. Don’t take things for granted. So many things in our world are conveniences that we take for granted – like being able to go to McDonald’s whenever we want, or looking up whatever we want on Google on a smart phone that we carry around. But that’s not freedom, especially if we come to over-rely on those things.”
The single not only challenges people with a deeper meaning, but also showcases Montana’s one-of-a-kind voice. It’s the kind of voice that is immediately recognizable when people hear it, and it’s something that has set him apart in a crowded industry for many years.
Montana first started his journey into music as a child when his mother was a singer and recording artist. Most of his youth was spent either with his mom in the recording studio, or back stage at many of her touring shows. His grandmother also played the piano at church, and he grew up singing in the church choir and learning how to play the piano from her. Montana was born in El Paso ,Texas and raised in both Texas and California. As a teenager, Montana learned how to produce music and studied some of the best rappers of history. He began to develop his own unique sound and style, and in 2008, he started doing shows professionally and recording his music.
“What has set me apart more than anything over the years is the topics I talk about,” he said. “I tackle things that a lot of people don’t really discuss because it might be a little touchy for them. But I believe the topics that are hard for people to discuss are the very things that are important for us to talk about. That’s why I always try to have substance in my music, if I can. I hope my music is known for me giving the best effort I can and for always trying to be honest when I could.”

Dj Iceman is back with another project for the year and he brought his friend and mentor Kept See along for the ride.
Kept See who is a prenominal emcee, got into production when he couldn’t find beats that were up to his standards. and over the years he has proven to be a top notch producer as well. Dj iceman having retired from a 30+ year dj career didn’t know what to do next creatively and Kept See suggested he get into production. reluctant at first it took a bigger push from Kept for him to get going and he hasn’t looked back since. both has had numerous placements with artists and on tv/videos and have torn down quite a few shows together. they are both members of the Wu-Tang affiliate groups GGO nd Dirty Clanzmen. This beat tape is a celebration of their friendship. on Kept See’s end, it is a passing of the torch to his student (he’s not retiring anytime soon) and on Icemans part its a homage to his mentor. each have 5 tracks on this album showing off their unique styles. Kept See’s lush, polished sound with crisp drums and flowing samples. and with Dj Iceman, you can see Kept Sees influence but his style is more rough around the edges with that Brooklyn feel to it. The love of Hip-Hop can be heard in each track and its good to see that there are still some producers out there that embody the essence of true Hip-Hop.
You can reach Kept See and Dj iceman through their social media for beats and verses
