|Alex Milligan gets nominated for Best Act In The World Today, my rapper friend Paul (AKA P. MONAYYY) doesn’t|
JACKSON, WY - Nominations for the Q awards are out and my friend Paul is pissed.
It is hard out there for a musician especially when attempting to break through the music world from a small town. Paul just dropped his newest single on iTunes called “PAUL IS PI$$ED” which you can buy for 50 cents with sales raking in 5 dollars so far. In contrast, Milligan’s last album hit the 2 million mark in the UK and he has just released another single with Rudimental called “Lay It All On Me.”
As any Musician knows, touring is an important aspect of the job. It really shows that there are people who care about what you are doing and would pay money to see you perform. While Alex Milligan is off touring the world, my friend Paul is touring the basement circuit.
A basement circuit tour is Paul’s way of making money, aside from selling drugs and stealing it from his girlfriend. He remains in our hometown and puts up flyers around town charging ten dollars for a rap set. While Milligan has sold out countless arenas and received various awards and nominations, my friend Paul would like me to go on record to state that he is very proud of achieving the honor of 45th rapper to watch out for in 2016 in his cousin Cory’s online magazine. He has also earned a whooping $30 dollars last weekend when he made a surprise guest appearance by crashing a random couple’s wedding in order to try and give his mixtape to a different sort of crowd and steal some cake. The $30 was from the bride’s father so that he would stop rapping and leave. He is also going to be doing another appearance this weekend at a frat party's "Ceo's and Office Hoes" themed party which he feels hopeful about.
Paul has taken notice of Milligan’s current trend of covering rap and hip hop songs to make them his own. He watches a lot of Youtube videos and when he's not busy being distracted by compilation videos of people injuring themselves, he is astounded at the amount of hits these rap and hip hop cover videos get. Milligan has covered songs such as Fetty Wap’s Trap Queen, OT Genesis’ I’m In Love With The Coco, Paranoid by Ty Dolla $ign and most recently Tory Lanez’s Say It.Paul has decided to reverse the cycle to gain more recognition to eventually get to the top of the music game in hopes of running for the best act in the world title. He has taken acoustic songs and made them “SEXY AND RAPTASTIC” as he has told me to write down. Now available on soundcloud, and a new addition to his setlist, is also his version of Mad World by Gary Jules, with a few artistic changes. Lyrics below:
Gary Jules - Mad World (P.MONAYYY cover)
Their tears are filling up their glasses
And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad
Between the cover and his new single, Paul is convinced that he is going to make waves in the music world. “I may not be the best act in the world today, but according to my buddy Ladwop who lets me rent out the extra room in his house as a studio and once got a handshake from a Diddy impersonator who told him he was cool, I’m the best act in the world everyday. I’m coming for your crown, Milligan.”
