A Rose Forever Thorned (Interview)


Soundwavez Radeo host “Illadelp” and Tiffany Moniq’ 8.18.16

It was an awesome yet nerve-racking experience being on the other end of the microphone at my interview with Soundwavez Radeo promoting my memoir A Rose Forever Thorned hosted by “Illadelp” host of The Banger Zone  . I myself used to  interview others and now it’s my turn to be in the hot seat and answer questions LOL. It’s been a few years since Illadelp and I sat in the booth together. We co-hosted events and were really active in the underground music scene for some time. I shared a few personal moments as well as giving you all a little taste of my song-writing skills so I blessed the mic with my first single ” I know You Care” take a sneak peek of my interview here   >>>> LISTEN <<<<

It all it starts out as a dream but it takes courage to take the leap of faith for it to turn into reality……


 At a time Illadelph’s dream of making it into the music industry and getting his music heard slowly died, soon thereafter he began to lose hope but then he reconnected with Charron Monaye who encouraged and pushed his music forward and ever since then the fire to record yet again burst into flames. Since then, he has recorded countless number of music, worked with various indie artist and now he has his music in rotation on both Internet and satellite radio. He has performed at numerous open Mic’s, performed at The Coast2Coast mixer and The Shed in Atlanta and has been requested to audition for The Voice in New York this month July 28, 2013.


He released a mix tape entitled “I’m Ready” hosted by DJ Truuf, which can be found on www.Datpiff.com and has received over 24,000 downloads. Wow! This young brotha has been on his grind ever since his fire for music was reignited. This guys resume just keeps on climbing, “Philly More Artist Than Fans” hosted by Global Grind, Hip-Hop Resurrection, hosted by DJ Genous and many more… Illadelp is also working on his first studio album entitled, “TwoOneFive” to be released this summer 2013. Due to his dedication and hard work his music has been selected to be played in a stage play called “Living Your Life” written by Charron Monayeand he’s currently working on a poetry book called “Gumbo of Love”. 

On January 1, 2013 Illadelph embarked on a new career as a radio personality on SoundWavezRadeo.com “Ride The Wavez Baby”  which plays music from indie artist not only from Philadelp but from across the globe. He has hosted for UrbsocietyMagazine.com for their “City Under Siege” Music Showcase & Industry Mixer which took place on June 1, 2013 at Jollie’s LIVEIlladelp has come a long way from serving 12 years in the United States Marine Corps. to now living his dream. I wonder what could this Jack of many trades have in store for us next?
