Bio

Montay was born in Nashville but grew up in Atlanta, GA. Although Montay was a little shy when he was younger he was very confident about one thing; that thing called rap, would someday become his to own. A young Montay was introduced to rap through the pen strokes of his older brother, who use to write fierce rhymes. Montay, not only begin to read his brother’s raps, but he also begin to perform them. Montay also begin to idolize other rappers such as Master P, Playa Fly and Warren G. At the age of 9 years old Montay decided that it was his time to shine and took to the stage to perform in a fourth grade talent show. This was a defining moment for Montay as he developed a love for rap that created a drive in him that remains to this day. It is this drive that gave Montay the confidence and skills to land second place out of fifty artists in the Sweet Auburn Festival’s “Best of The Best” competition. Montay’s journey did not stop here. Montay continued; becoming an opening act for local rap artist, Young Ralph, performing in the V103 radio station’s showcase, and even landing a spot on BET’s 106 Park/ Wild Out Wednesday.
Montay continues to perform today. Hits like “Blow Up”, “Crush”, and “Do What It Do”, prove to be a milestone of his career development when reflecting back on his first solo song, “We Running It”. A mature Montay boast to bring fun, excitement, and pure entertainment that keeps you wanting more. Montay’s music will definitely have a special spot with the ladies as he combines Hip and R&B to create a mature sound with commercial swagger.
