From his upcoming album "Pacific Coast Highway"
Dropping April 12th (Dawn Raid/SMC Recordings/Fontana)
Long Beach, CA - To watch Monsta's latest video, "Wesperado's ft. Yukmouth and Ganxsta Ridd" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAiwLeQmQy4&feature=related is to be transported back to the West Coast's rap hay days of the 90's - and it's a fun trip. Truth be told, Monsta has been rhyming with Yuk and fellow Regime members since the early 2000's but that is not his only Hip Hop legacy; he is also nephew to the infamous Boo Yaa Tribe. Anyone unfamiliar should pick up his recently released EP "Allow Me To Re-Introduce Myself" which features some of his best material with Yukmouth and Techn9ne from back in their Rap-A-Lot days.
If you are thinking, "why all the re-hashing?", well, Monsta will be releasing his debut solo album, "Pacific Coast Highway" on April 12th on Dawn Raid/SMC Recordings/Fontana with brand new material featuring Jacka, Huslah, Masspike Miles, Hell Rell and of course, Yukmouth and Boo Yaa Tribe.
Gangsta, right? Well, Monsta does have a softer side too, believe it or not. Just watch this ode to his Mother, "This Is Love ft. J Boog", a single that was recently certified RIANZ Gold, if you don't believe me - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTCqNRcIxQE&feature=relmfu (346,840 plays on YouTube)
"Pacific Coast Highway" is anything but a rehash. It is the culmination of the past 10 years on Monsta's musical journey beginning as a Mexican/Samoan child growing up in the church, to growing up as a teenager in the violent streets of Carson City and Long Beach, CA.
Take a roadtrip with Monsta along the Pacific Coast Highway - April 12th, 2011!
