MonoNeon: Segreghetto

MonoNeon is gearing up for a new album called Quilted Stereo, and he’s giving fans a sneak peek by releasing a few of its tracks. “Segreghetto” is the bassist/vocalist’s brand new heat, featuring his signature bass styles underneath clever rap verses about unity.

In a new press release, MonoNeon explained the track’s meaning.

“The term ‘Segreghetto’ encapsulates the intersection.. them crossroads of segregation and ghettoization… perseverance in this human experience,” he explains. “‘Segreghetto’ is a thang where it’s a testament to the enduring spirit of yourself in your community and culture. Like offering a voice to those that are overlooked or misunderstood… carving out your own path even in the midst of systemic inequalities. When me and my friend Davy were writing the song ‘Segreghetto,’ I felt like this junt could be inspiration to anyone willing to defy the odds and chase their dreams, wanting that gold medal.. no matter the obstacles that lie in their path and journey.”

Quilted Stereo will feature guest appearances by George Clinton and Mavis Staples. It’s available for pre-order now, with a release date of July 26th. MonoNeon will also be on tour this summer to support the record. See below the video for his itinerary.
