MonoNeon interview about working with Prince

Prince's last bassist MonoNeon discusses how Prince found him and what is was like working with him.

http://www.okayplayer.com...rview.html

"Another cool thing about the times I had playing with Prince was that he just let me play. Sometimes he would say, “I will follow you,” when we jammed on some songs. Prince gave me a lot of freedom, which I didn’t expect… he let me be MonoNeon. Outside of playing music, Prince would invite us to hang with him at the Chanhassen Cinema down the street from Paisley and we would watch a movie with him."

Yeah, MonoNeon is starting to blow up, unfortunately it wasn't with Prince. Looks like he started to get a lot of attention when he started posting those Cardi B mash ups to his instagram. The Roots played a few of his tracks on Jimmy Fallon when Cardi b was a guest. It seemed to take off from there. I'm shocked no big artists have snatched him up because he has endless stream of original grooves. Maybe he is just too clean, he woud ending up blowing fools out of the room. I mean, there is very few dudes that can make the Bop Gun sound funkier than it already is.
