Nation19 interviewed the dope MC’s from the 19MCs list and they shared some of the most inspirational words for. This is what Enoch shared. A Washington DC Native that keeps it real…….. hiphop that is.  

N19: What inspired you to want to rap about political and/or social topics?

Enoch: I wanted to rap about things that can and should be a reflection of my community, inner self, and the changing world around us. In order for a person to rap about social topics and/or politics, you have to be involved in the culture of reality…. This lack of artists not saying anything with substance is my inspiration to write on topics that can make a listener think twice.

N19: Favorite book you recommend reading?

Enoch: “The Wise Mind of H.I.M Emperor Halie Selassie I”

edited and forward: H.I.H Prince Ermias Shil Selassie

introduction: Ras Sekou S. Tafari

N19: #1 Hero in your life?

Enoch:My Grandmother

N19: What does consciousness mean to you?

Enoch: It means to be self-aware of your being. It means to have knowledge of yourself. It means to have a full overstand of the god consciousness that surround us daily because even the unconsciousness is still consciousness within his/her own understanding.

N19: Who are your top two MC’s? Why?

Enoch: RedMan ( Reggie Noble) has always been my favorite emcee since 92’ “Thee Whut? Album”. Redman made me want to visit Newark NJ aka Brick City. I appreciate the concepts, bars and how he approaches a song along with his style of writing. He’s always reinventing himself.

Black Thought along with Redman have always been my fav emcees because both artists are highly underrated and rarely talked about when it comes to bars. Black Thought is El-Presidente when it comes to freestyle, concepts, and writing styles that are unmatched, to say the least.

N19: What is one of the major obstacles in the music industry for you?

Enoch: When this mumble rap gets more attention then the emcees who have something to say.

N19: Would you rather be on a Label or be/remain Indie…what is your flavor?

Enoch: The goals are to remain indie, thats why I created a label called “Chakra Music, LLC” with my Deejay KING CEE. This is a sure way for us to control the narrative of our vision.

N19: Tell us your most dopest verse?

Enoch: Recognize the voice

Bearer of the light

To the lost-Souls

To any demon possess, wanna test

God in the flesh
