KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The ups and downs of life are raw inspiration for Kansas City rapper Montay Ross. After parting ways with his former record label, Ross started up his own, Mad Houze Records.
"I see myself doing things differently than what we were doing 10 years ago, six years ago," said Ross.
The messages in his music comes easy to Ross, he writes what he knows, his life. From personal struggles to family deaths. There's no shortage of material.
"I don't like all that fairy tale, I'm riding around on rims, and I got all this money music," said Ross. "This is real life, we struggle just like everybody else."
For the moment, Ross and his cousin Maurice (Pacman Reese) Robinson are the only artists on the label. Ross says you expect at least two albums from Mad Houze in the coming months.
