Menteroja

Nowadays hip hop often is about the wrong things. One who knows better is Menteroja. Menteroja is the Swedish answer to Immortal Technique. One who knows better is Menteroja. Menteroja is the Swedish answer to Immortal Techinque. Someone who knows what the content of his lyrics really means. Politics is the headline in Enesto’s lyrics and you can read from his artist name Menteroja from where he’s speaking. Menteroja that, translated from Spanish, means “red mind”. The blood that flows through Ernesto’s veins is red since birth and inherited from his parents that had to flee from their country, Uruguay, to avoid torture and possible death because of their political views.

Menteroja produces his music together with the master mind Robin Banks and the result is a a sound that sounds like well-produced underground. Since Robin Banks is involved there is a feeling of the nineties and with Menterojas aggressive attitude and opinions there is a a touch of Wu-Tang Clan but without the gangsta rap.

”Never riding no trend we forever devoted

making the tracks you’ll be hummin

and the rhymes y’all be qouting”

To me Menteroja means a musical moment that will stick with me for life. One night a friend calls me asking me if I want to come to Menteroja’s release party. Mente-what? I ask and feel a little ashamed since I don’t know of him. A few hours and a few drinks later I’m standing there at the party in Växjö, digging the rhythm and feeling that everything is so soft! Hopefully you’ll like him as much as I do.
