XRAY Monsta Mixes 2
- Words: Brolin Winning
- Label: Mindbenda
Arguably the most lyrically devastating crew in hip-hop today, the Monsta Island Czars have evolved from mysterious MF Doom associates to an unstoppable rap powerhouse. Building on the success of their classic debut Escape From Monsta Island, chief beat-maker Xray hits us with another 20-track collection featuring remixes, exclusive new joints, and unearthed gems from the vaults. There's not a bad track on here, from the hypnotic guitar-laced jump-off Witchcraft Remix" to the subdued closer "Covert Op" by Darcmind. With team captain Jet Jaguar back from upstate, and multiple solo albums on deck, the Czars's takeover is just beginning.
