Moise Bently’s (think “noise” with an “m”) came to me by referral. That was the first unique thing about this interview. The second? Most of the rappers I am put in contact with are from Utah and don’t really have a polished, international aura about them like Bently. Even though he hasn’t done much press, he presented himself as a polished professional and came with a high recommendation from one of Utah’s most heralded rap artists and battle emcees, Emerson Kennedy (aka EMRSN or EK).
In this interview, we introduce Moise to the People’s Podshow audience and discuss everything from philanthropy, to cars, to fashion, to his native land, the Ivory Coast. I have a feeling that Moise won’t be making any slow-paced, introspective, politically-charged songs any time soon. For now, his modus operandi seems to be making club hits and radio anthems in an attempt to gain an audience before he gets into the studio to make a full-fledged entry to his discography. Whatever the future holds for Bently, don’t expect excuses and complacency to be a part of his day-to-day operation. “It’s all about hard work…” he says.
