MR_IBEONIT, born Chris Mounger, is a recording artist/songwriter/producer from Clinton, MS. He’s been recording since he was just eleven years old and has always had a passion for music. He started off in a group and eventually ventured off into being a solo artist. He recorded his first release “Red Ink” his senior year of high school and he is currently preparing to release his new project “Red Ink II” some time in 2014.

MR_IBEONIT has been performing at the bi-weekly “Sipp Hop” event at The Soul Wired Cafe. He’s been rising up the ranks of Jackson artists and he’s determined to cement himself as one of the premier rappers in the city. I got the chance to ask the big homie some questions like what does Red Ink stand for and what he has coming out next. Check out what he had to say:

1. What inspired you to record “Red Ink” your senior year of high school?

MO: I think I finally found my subject matter and found myself as an artist. I was always the person who wrote in a notebook (still do) rather it was rhymes or free writing. The title for the tape just came to me one day in history class my Junior year of high school. The title “Red Ink” symbolizes the world that we live in. I believe in the Bible,  and in the Good Book God’s words were represented in red letters to signify importance. I narrate my music in red ink so that I can stand apart from this black and white world we live in.

2. Which artist would you most like to collaborate with?

MO: There are so many artists alive and dead I would like to collaborate with from all genre’s of music. As far as hip hop, I’m a huge fan of lyricism so I would like to record with Jay Z. Mostly because I admire his stage performance and his competitiveness. On the R&B side,  I’ve always wanted to work with R. Kelly. If not by being on a record with him, I would at least like to write a hook for him.

3. When is your next performance at Soul Wired Cafe?

MO: My next performance at Soul Wired Cafe will be June 8 at 6 p.m.

4. What does the word success mean to you?

MO: To me the word success is an individual setting goals and surpassing all obstacles in a dominant fashion

5. What message do you want your listeners to receive from your music?

MO: I want people to pay attention to my lyrics. I want my music to spark conversations like the artists I’ve admired did for me and my friends. I like making hip hop music and over time I want to gradually move into making records that can be felt universally as well.

MR_IBEONIT has big goals and he’s well on his way to reaching them. He has the strive and the hustle to make it all real.
