Mysonne “the General” Linen, to his fans, is an independent hip hop artist and criminal justice reform activist from the Bronx, NY. Known for his introspective style, brutally honest, and socially conscious lyrics, Mysonne’s experiences of poverty and wrongful incarceration compel him to do more than rap about the social and economic conditions of the ghetto. Mysonne is an organizer and frequently speaks out against biased policing and inequity in the criminal justice system. Mysonne made the decision to start his own company, US Entertainment, to maintain creative control over his work and deliver the type of music that his fans want and need. In February 2017, his single “That’s How We On It” earned heavy rotation across the country, and video of his 2017 freestyle on DJ Funkmaster Flex’s show reached over 40 million views. His highly popular Cypher on the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards was likewise celebrated both for its technical skill and the socially conscious content. Mysonne represents the underdog, refusing to succumb to negativity and proving that struggle can be the catalyst for leadership. He is married to Angelic Linen and is the proud father of three sons.
