Biography of Mongo Slane To find ones purpose in life is not an easy journey. A dark path Mongo Slane knows too well. From fulfilling crime sprees to handling the pressures of those who depend on his success; Mongo understands that success does not come from ones status, but it comes from the recognition of being a man. The journey starts in Memphis, Tennessee, where Mongo Slane was born. As a boy, he was quickly moved across the world including Italy, Portugal, and Greece before his family made Dallas, Texas a permanent home. The days get darker, when the boy becomes a teen lurking in the shadows of some of Dallass desolate areas. His passion for music, the only source of light, buried deep within his soul. Ive always been in love wit music and I know I can be successful in the music business, but I also was in love withstealin cars and sellin dope mostly. After three felony charges and many years in prison, Mongo Slanes dark path took a turn towards something more enlightening. I want to reach people with my music... and be able to give back to those less fortunate. Ironically, the name he chose to bear as a rap artist represents his philosophy. Taken from a 1975 film called Lets Do It Again featuring Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby, the two main characters were using street hustling tactics to raise money for a noble cause. Cosbys character created Mongo Slade. However, due to trademark infringement with another rap artist, Slade had to be changed to Slane. With a new way of life and a desire to help people in need, Mongo Slane has a different determination to being successful than relying on music stardom. As a man, he has realized that his friends and family are the source of his inspiration. They push me to do better and to make the right choices. Mongo Slane has made the correct decisions. He has recently worked alongside Chamillionaire and Bun B with Boomtown Productions on a movie soundtrack. Additionally, he is in the process of becoming a certified barber, so he can run his own legitimate operation. It seems, while many fall back into the gap, Mongo Slane creates bridges. With the release of his single Whats Up and his upcoming album By Any Means Necessary, fans will respect Mongo Slanes journey and will help celebrate his victory. I really dont know my purpose...... maybe God will tell me.
