NEW ARTIST SPOTLIGHT AND INTERVIEW: TRIUMPH AND MUNEE + ‘GO’ [VIDEO]

26 Dec

Va’s pool of talent is growing and the #’s are gonna keep rising well into 2012. Our artist spotlight bring us to 2 MC’s whom I had the pleasure of meeting a week ago as they blaze hot promo for their upcoming appearance on BET’s 106 & Park. The 757 duo, consisting of Triumph and Munee are all about the music and their ETP movement.

Marcellous “Triumph” Mapp has been consistently leaving his mark on the music industry for the past 12 years. Newport News, Virginia has been the home that raised and taught Triumph how to survive. Being the man of the household and the eldest of 3 brothers(on his fathers side) built a leadership quality about Triumph at a very early age. He always had a way with words and quickly realized that performing in front of people is something that became second nature to him. Writing poetry and short stories at the age 11 turned into in to writing songs and battle raps by the age of 13 where he won his first rap battle at a teen club called Checkers.

Errick Deshawn Pair, aka Munee, was born in Newark, NJ. Munee ($) M.otivated U.nderestimated N.ever E.xpected E.xcellence…. Growing up in a full household gave him experience to deal with life’s tough situations. Munee has three brothers and one sister, with two loving parents who taught him not only how to be a resilient man. While going through financial hardship in 2003 he relocated to Virginia. During his time there he was blessed to have met some influential people known as EnTaPrize Entertainment LLC. (E.T.P).

Munee has been nominated along with Triumph for Top Ten artist of the Year in the Hood Elegant Program. Currently pushing the pre album “Boiling Point” Triumph plans to release a joint mixtape with Munee and also a Entaprize mixtape by the beginning of summer. ETP (Entaprize) is currently promoting their new single and visual titled “GO”. The Triumph record featuring Munee soared to over 8000 views on VladTV in just 6 days. That’s not even including the thousands of views that is has on Youtube

Triumph & Munee will also be seen performing live on BET’s 106 and Park on January 4, 2012.
