Monty G/King of the Jungle: Survival Tape/Lion of Judah
This gospel reggae artist has been singing/rapping/chatting thought provoking lyrics over dancehall, soca, Caribbean hip-hop, and traditional reggae beats for almost 10 years. He is a gifted artist indeed and has an iconic sound. This album is mixtape style mixed in with an east coast West Indian radio station lunchtime mix – complete with randomly interspersed horns, radio voice overs, electronic beeps, and other dissonant sound fx. If you like Beenie Man, Shaggy, or Sizzla you might like this! Favorite Tracks: 2, 3, 7, 10* No FCCs. Reviewed by Kesha of Lift Jesus Higher!
