::: HIP-HOP IN MACEDONIA ::: TONI ZEN :::
Finally we are proud that Hip Hop in Macedonia is at the level that can compete with other countries in the Balkans and Europe.Im following theevolution of hip-hop from the verz beginning, and i came to the conclusion that in our country this music has survived and is building on all the elements of hip hop culture - although hip-hop is originating from environment which is quite different from ours.In last 10 years hip-hop in Macedonia is rising dramatically and is presented in different forms, but its true light fades because the world of hip hop artists and leaders is changeing and confuse its original form, with the other musical styles so most support and develop this idea
Today there are plenty of DJs and MCs - how to fing quality?
There is quantity but we lack quality of DJ's and Mc's, it is difficult for new generations to deal with Hip-Hop because they missed the 90s, the golden years, or "GOLDEN ERA OF HIP-HOP." It's more synthetic and diverse sounds of the time and therefore it is very difficult for older to find quality in young performers
What moment was crucial to your career?
For a long time i have been an active DJ and MC - my priority was to be a DJ, but in the year 2008 i made one change that led me to what i am now, i realized that i have a lot to say, and so i began writing texts, making music, it became and still is a part of my life.
How much participating in Survivor TV show helped you?
My participation in the Survivor brought me a great experience, information and friends, but my favorite thing is that i got even closer to nature, and i better understand principles that underpin the world, fame is inevitable and sometimes helps but im not abusing it in this case .
