Mocho talks about Portuguese Rap

The reason why I chose Hip Hop out of all genres was because I have been listening to Hip Hop since I was young. I started listening to 50 cent, Akon, Eminem, and as I got older they inspired me to rap. Hip Hop is a very good way to express yourself.
Do you think there is a difference between Portugal Hip hop and other countries hip hop?
To be honest yes because there is 2 types of Portuguese rap. We have basic Portuguese language Hip Hop and we also have Portuguese-Creole Hip Hop. I think that’s why our Hip Hop is different.
Do you listen to South African hip hop? If yes, who do you think runs South African hip hop?
I recently heard a few songs from AKA, he’s a good rapper but it’s too soon to know who runs South African Hip Hop. I got to carry on listening to other rappers.
What makes Mocho different from other hip hop artists?
What makes Mocho different to other hip hop artists is that I am unique just like so many other hip hop artist out there. I never tried copying other artists and never will because that is not being different. The more unique you are the better.
Who are the Amazing people or organisations have you worked with in this hip hop game?
I have worked with a Hip Hop artist called Proeza. He’s got his own music organisation called SM Company.
One word to describe Mocho?
Do you think you have what it takes to improve hip hop to a better level?
If I carry on putting dedication, support from my loved ones and put heart into it, then yes I do have what it takes. I just have to hope for the best.
Who intimidates you around your area when it comes to dropping lines?
I don’t get intimidated I’m confident enough. Just put a beat on my phone, drop a few lines and let it all flow smoothly. I ignore the intimidation.
Any updates?
No. Not yet, as soon as I finish my first mix tape then I’ll start organising some gigs.
Surely there’s someone out there who wishes to be like Mocho? how can you motivate them?
Yeah man just do your thing there will be haters trying to drag you down but that’s how you'll get better, more motivated, more dedication and then some of them haters will turn into fans. Nothing is impossible in this world so stay focused.
Shout outs?
Mainly my family for supporting me. Shout out to the people that like my music. And last but not least, shout out to my haters without all of these people I wouldn’t have the dedication I have now.
The day you got embarrassed during your childhood, what happened?
I got a bit sad and carried on with my life
