In A World Where It Seems Hip-Hop Has Lost Its Way…
In Walks “Toni Monroe“, the only woman who seems to have the strength, skills and abilities, and burning desires to actually resurrect the origins of Hip-Hop. To bring it back to a time when story tellers and minds with genius abilities became the journalists, historians and revolutionaries of our time.
Her lyrical prowess has the insight of an artist like Nas, with the soul and style of most female Hip-Hop and R&B Artists set to bring about a greater understanding to the game. Toni doesn’t stop at the usual banter that pervades our airwaves today. And as a matter of fact, she probably doesn’t even touch on those shallow subject matters at all.
Toni comes from a place of great understanding from an analytical and creative combination of mind and soul, to overcome obstacles and share the struggles and achievements that have made Toni Monroe the artist she is today. While her exterior may not necessarily scream out “Dopest Emcee You’ve Seen On The Scene“… Her songs definitely scream out “I told you so“.
And that’s one of those unexpected packages that brings about enough attention to influence. And add to that a person who has a purpose and a calling to be a voice box for a generation, while bringin’ mad style and flavor straight from Southern California, and you’ve got the Woman with the Presence of a Queen to set to bring SexyBack to Hip-Hop, as the sexiest of all people are those with great intellects, wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and artistic creativity that shuts out the worlds judgments, assumptions, and limited intelligence and says “I Am Hip-Hop“. Clearly Toni is ready to kick suma$$ while taking over the Throne and setting things straight in the Game.
As Toni Monroe shares with us her struggles, and how she came about and was birthed as an artist, one can’t deny the fortitude and will to break through the doubts of even her closest associates… Even down to the creation of her name, which itself is a display of a Strong Independent and Sexy Woman who takes charge of her own life, Toni’s choices and path depict a woman who’s ready to take over in a world where few woman are able to command the respect as Rakim did in the Golden Era.
But those who bring about Truth in their lyrics and songs are the ones whose Legacy carries on.
It’s no wonder Toni is quickly catching the attention of folks from all over the Hip-Hop realm, performing in show and working with artists like Ice Cube, Nelly, E-40, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Mack 10 and Mobb Deep. She was even chosen to gain the coveted position as performing on stage with none other than Legendary Compton Producer / Rapper DJ Quik as he rings in 2012 at The Key Club in Hollywood.
So clearly yet another one doing it Big for 2012, as Toni is set to debut her mixtape with DJ Crazy Toones entitled “Big Girl Cookies” sure to give the Industry a stir and a buzz like none have seen since 50 Cent signed with Eminem.
So I’m pretty sure after checking out Toni’s style as an artist, and as a person in this Exclusive SunOfHollywood.com interview..
You too will agree that Toni is given a powerful position
to Resurrect Hip-Hop as her Matriarchal Mission

The Life story of Music Producer Kannon Cross, a.k.a. “Caviar” a.k.a. “Cavie“, plays out like a Who’s Who of Hip-Hop’s Most Influential and Historic Figures.Take for example the fact that Cavie was plucked out of the streets of Compton as an adolescent at the ripe old age of 12 by none other than N.W.A. Co-Founder and Ruthless Records CEO Eazy-E, along with DJ Train after showing young Cavie the difference in lives he could experience if he went from the Streets to the Hip-Hop Scene. And so he did. A teenage Cavie was blessed enough to live out his teenage years under the wings of N.W.A. Members, Eazy, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, DJ Yella, MC Ren and the D.O.C., watching them put together what would now be considered legendary works in the Hip-Hop realm and its West Coast Gangsta Rap movement.
From there, Cavie moved to Blackground Entertainment, run by Barry Hankerson, uncle to the also legendary Aaliyah. At Blackground, Cavie worked with Hip-Hop’s greatest collaborative and creative minds, which not only included Aaliyah, but also Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott and Timbaland. Cavie’s relationship with Timbaland continues to this day, as the two are set to work on a few upcoming tracks. Cavie began working on several projects with Aaliyah, including songs such as “Back in One Piece,” featuring DMX. The song was a big hit on the “Romeo Must Die” soundtrack. Blackground also hired Cavie to work with R&B artist, Tank, producing songs such as “Street Life” and “My Freak.” Cavie even mentions how Aaliyah’s final album was set to be a double album, which was to feature various tracks from Cavie, but as we know, that double album would never come to be.
Cavie has lent his musical fingerprints to artists that we all know and love, like Mack 10, Ice Cube, Xzibit, T.I. and DMX… but was recently called by none other than Cee-Lo Green himself to not only work on Cee-Lo’s upcoming solo effort, but to also add his musical talents to the upcoming and highly anticipated and long overdue Goodie Mob album, which brings Cee-Lo back to the Dungeon Family based crew, which includes T-Mo, Big Gipp and Khujo, that made them all famous along with Outkast. These projects are not the only albums on Cavie’s plate. He recently agreed to work with Teddy Riley and another album for Macy Gray, and he’s also crafting hits for the comeback albums for T.I. and DMX.
The Hip-Hop scene of the South is definitely familiar with Cavie’s work, after moving to Atlanta in 2001 and producing tracks for T.I., beginning with work on “Urban Legend” and continuing to “King”, where he produced the menacing track, “Undertaker”. In the South, Cavie played his beats to Crime Mob, Young Dro and Ciara. Cavie also had the privilege of producing some of the late Pimp C’s last recorded songs.
And if that wasn’t enough… can you believe Cavie’s about to drop a track with Joe Jonas ??? Damn homey, talk about versatility. Versatility is definitely something that Cavie is all too familiar with, after his 2010 hit record with Macy Gray, “Beauty in the World”, generated several television placements including; “Ugly Betty”, “Law and Order LA”, “What Chilli Wants”, and the Ashton Kutcher film “Killers”. Other Macy Gray collabs also made it on the screens like “Kissed It” which became the Summertime theme the Bravo network and “Stand Up” which was in the movie “For Colored Girls”.
So when it comes to the real History of Hip-Hop, it’s time to scratch what you “think” you know… and it’s time you know what’s been really goin on. The man with the Rock Hard “Cavie” has been filling your ears and souls with that funk that your favorite artists have lent their voices and minds to, all to be the influential move makers that Hip-Hop is known for. And as Cavie prepares to set his eyes on his past dues of Superstardom, we can’t wait to see what Cavie will be releasing, both for others, as well as himself.
And if you’re not convinced yet, just check out the Exclusive Interview Cavie gave to SunOfHollywood.com, and prepare to relive the Ghost of Hip-Hop Past… only to see Cavie’s got the keys to the Spirit of Hip-Hop’s Future.
