Myyko Montana (Photo courtesy of Vannoy One Marketing) The music business is saturated with urban myths of artists like Mykko Montana who get million-dollar deals with hit records, and then falling quickly into “has-been” obscurityIf you look at the landscape of artists today, very few were around 10 years ago, especially when it comes to hip-hopTo get a second go-around in hip-hop is something that few get a chance to live outMykko Montana may get that chance but what may be even more valuable is the fact that he learned the lesson he was meant to learnRolling out and Martell sponsored a private listening session at Parhelion studios in Atlanta for Mykko to both share his story and allow media and tastemakers to hear a preview of his new music. In 2012, Mykko Montana signed a million-dollar music deal and was living the life that most rappers will never experienceHis hit single “Do It” featuring KCamp created the type of buzz that only his hometown of Atlanta can deliverThe song was playing on every radio station and had clubs on fire across the country. One minute Mykko was homeless floating between friends’s homes and the next he was flying in first class with more shoes and clothes and women than he knew what to do with“God told me I was going to be blessed and he told me when I got my blessing, it was my responsibility to help my familyI was supposed to help my mother and my sisters, grandmother …,” Mykko sharedInstead of stepping up and helping his family, Mykko focused on himself and the friends he acquired in the industry. Today, Mykko doesn’t travel with the large entourage he used to years agoHe isn’t laced with expensive jewelry and the arrogance he carried years ago is goneInstead of ego, one can hear maturity and gratefulness in his voice“It all fell apart because I didn’t do what I was supposed toGod told me to do something and I didn’t do itI didn’t treat the people around me rightI was just doing me,” Mykko admitted“Out of all the money I had I think I gave my family $800,” he admitted. Mykko’s grandmother and two sisters were in the audience for supportThey co-signed his account of how things happened and seemed proud of the man he has becomeMykko played his new single, “1000” along with several singles from his upcoming EPInstead of a young emcee rapping about material things, his new music is focused on his experience, lessons learned, and hopefully, being an inspiration to others. Whether Mykko gets the million-dollar deal that he had in 2012 or even surpasses it remains to be seenWhat remains certain is that his experiences in the music business taught him some valuable lessons in manhood that will no doubt serve him well wherever his journey leads him.     Share this:TweetMorePrint More on Young RJ is joined by Guilty Simpson and Phat Kat on ‘I Know’ Chicago hip-hop phenomenon K’Valentine releases new single ‘US’ w/Talib Kweli Adrienne Houghton preaches to Raven-Symoné about being judgmental Tee Grizzley is showing off flashy cars and ‘hood living in ‘Colors’ video Christal Jordan The principal behind Enchanted Branding & PR, a premier entertainment agency based in AtlantaShe also is a media trainer/ consultant and pop culture analystSelf-proclaimed feminist and equestrian-in-trainingYou can see more of Christal on her website Follow @@enchantedpr !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],p=/^http:/.test(d.location)?'http':'https';if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);;js.src=p+'://';fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document, 'script', 'twitter-wjs'); Most Talked About Donald Trump’s hair the butt of Twitter jokes The legend of poetic prophet Melvin BTolson lives on at Texas HBCU
