In a quick interview we got Cony to answer a couple of questions. Check it out.

H|E: Cony, welcome brother. Glad to have you here. I see your single “Waves” getting a lot of attention. I salute you for that. Now tell the world where you from and how you came up with “CONY”?

Cony: I’m from Linden NJ & Carteret NJ, repping PoetrySpeakz & Hip Hop Everything. My actual name is Marcony But I Dropped The First Three Letters Off.

H|E: That's love. Considering the fact that you’re working in a market of your own, what kind of message you tend to send through your music and why?

Cony: The type of music I put out is very different. The style of Music I put I put out is a mix of Poetry, RNB, Rap & Soul all put together. I just want to tell stories, I just want to educate the mind and heal the broken, I AM THE VOICE OF THE VOICELESS!

H|E: That’s dope Cony. What got you here, how did it all start?

Cony: Wow actually my background to music is very interesting. I lost my grandmother to cancer and I took the blame for her death. I was lost myself trying to find myself and I was in a very dark place, when I thought things couldn’t get worst my father had THREE heart attacks. Growing up was just a lot, especially being separated from your birth mother and being the oldest out of Six kids was a lot to take on alone. I began writing on the walls in my room but my mother was not having that so I began writing in a little yellow notebook. I was that kid that you seen around that always carried that yellow note book and never let anyone read it because inside that notebook was my deepest thoughts.

H|E: Cony, you obviously placed yourself in a lane of your own. Want to elaborate on that?

Cony: Man in this music field its NON STOP competition. I put myself in a different lane where I just make good music, the more you compete with other artists the more you force yourself to reach expectations that you may never reach one day. I just do me I’ve been killing this music game hitting Over 3K plays a week so aye my methods must be working.
