Monsta Mack – Only For The Ride [Review]
Surrey, BC – Monsta Mack‘s new mixtape Only For The Ride has landed. It was recorded at Paranoyd Sounds Studios and produced by J thorn. Monsta Mack is part of the hip hop collective Surrey Kingz reppin’ Surrey to all of Vancity and the world. This mixtape is Monsta Mack’s eighth release and though he is slowly improving he still has miles to travel in the music game.
The album starts with Monsta Mack asking the listener to “Bring it” and dissin’ other rappers saying, “Rapper’s ain’t shit/Live at home with their mommas.” His beats are nothing intricate although during “Essence” Monsta Mack pours out his hardships and how he fell into the fate of street life, which he calls his “Monsta Trap.” “Keep Her Pussy Wet” had the equivalent lyrical depth to Iggy Azealia’s “Pu$$y” and Monsta Mack even spits “I want Iggy Azealia on my dick tonight.” The album takes a turn for the better ending with menacing lyrics in “I’m A Ridah” featuring Swisha with witty beats and rhymes that will make you giggle for days.
As Monsta Mack puts it, this release is “ Only for the ride/The big beats, big thump, and crisp sound.” So ride your ears along and decide for yourself if this mixtape has your car thumpin’.
