But once I had experienced the lost of a close person to me it motivated me to keep going harder since I’m no longer just carrying myself. I can’t even name all the people who inspired me because it’s been a life long chain on experiences that kept me influenced me to keep going. I can honestly early hip hop & r&b inspired my sound though and also the people around me who keep high expectations of me keep me grinding. My mother,friends, father,fiancé, and other musical artist were my biggest influencers
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent release ?
Montana Lee : My video “Lock Thoughts” was released about a week and a half ago. It was a song I made in my studio in like 3 minutes honestly. For some reason I just had a gut feeling that I should hurry up and release it and shoot a video because as the song played I started visualizing different but dark moods for it. As you can see the video portrayed and dark yet honest perspective of being “locked in your thoughts “.

Montana Lee : I just dropped a video called “Lock Thoughts” which was shot by Dodbh and the response I’ve been getting from that has been nothing but positive.I’m a keen believer and “there’s no I in “team so I strategically did things so everybody could gain exposure. In that video I was in the “BreakOut Box” which is studio owned by my mentor Timpa Tantrum and then U see another familiar face in my background my artist “Mono”. I do stuff like that make it possibly for everybody to build off 1 things. I am a team player.
