Why this name?
I use to go by the name ShowTime but I felt everybody was running with that even tho I had that name since 2005. So I took the name of two African Kings that I saw in a Rasta spot and thats how you get Shamba Menelek
Do you play live?
I have done about 8 Open Mic's so Far. I want to go Hard it.. but It's like.. I keep improving. I just need to stay Right. Im more afraid that I will become famous over night than I am of not, Making It.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Now, u Know, they done f***ed up right?
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I would but I think I might go the Independent Route. Who Knows.
Since 2005 I have been taking my music aspirations, seriously. I have learned to make my music more accessible to different people which lead to growth, introspection, and discovery. Today people are impressed with beats but I hope their impressed with my favorite instrument my voice.
