MONK.E: Artist


 

One of the emblematic figures of the hip-hop landscape in Quebec, Monk.E has undeniably inherited a gift, both in terms of prose and urban painting. Since its beginnings in the world of graffiti and music with the ASHOP and K6A crews, Monk.E has been able to impose its artistic vision and this, independently of the imperatives of the industry. His first album titled Remédium / their Medium (2005) was part of the backpacker tradition, as much by the nature of the topics covered as by the musical backgrounds on which the texts were spitting. Perpetually nomadic, he multiplies the international musical collaborations as well as the friendships overseas between 2003 and 2007. The fruit of his voyages is heard through the albums Amérythmes (2007), Tour de France (2008) and InCUBAtion (2011).
