Since the release of their very first EP ‘Dope Adolescent’, Billy maintains that the ‘M.O.P Message’ hasn’t changed.
“Family first, take care of yourself and look after your well-being, and do whatever it takes to get to where you want to go. That’s our message. No one can stop that.”
In regards to their musical style, Billy is adamant that as long as you don’t follow trends, it should fall into place.
“If you sound like everybody else, then when that particular sound fades out, you’ll fade out with it. No one does hip hop the way we do it. There are only so many words in the English language, but they never say them the way we say them.
“We’re going to keep pushing, and that’s exactly why we’re as strong as we are now.”
The latest M.O.P release, ‘Street Certified’ is out now.
