We had the good fortune of connecting with Lamont McNair and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lamont, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
MontyKong pursued a creative career because it is a way he is able to connect with his audience. Everything from the storytelling and the character he displays ,allows his words to be felt in a strong meaningful way.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
MontyKong’s art resembles different walks of life. He is a realist, and believes what you speak into life will come to fruition. The journey is neither hard or easy, but a journey worthy enough to be embraced .

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
The most important place to check out is the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. I’ve been to a lot of places, but something about overlooking the city makes you feel like the world is at the palm of your hands.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Ultimately I would have to give credit to my closest friends and family , and anyone on the way who has planted any inspiration along this journey .
