The Monsters Are Due On CrayonBeats (part 3)

Good morning, readers! I am proud to announce that the third part in my The Monsters Are Due On CrayonBeats compilation series is out TODAY. If you aren’t familiar with this concept compilation series that I have curated, let me briefly explain what it is.

As an 80’s baby and a child of the 90s, I read the Goosebumps books as a kid and, boy, did a lot of them scare me. In my years, I’ve also seen all of The Twilight Zone episodes, and continue to watch the series when it marathons during holidays. Similarly, they are really cool, innovative creations that tell tales involving themes of horror, thriller, science fiction, fantasy, comedy and beyond–they take your mind into strange and scary situations that are based on dream and reality.

Album Review: MC Bravado – “Walk The Line”

I haven’t covered MC Bravado since the Dope Perspective EP that he dropped in 2012, with C-Nature, so I’m glad to come across somewhat new EP of his. Released on October 13th, 2014, Walk The Line is a conceptual project that finds him weaving between Johnny Cash’s own experiences, outlooks, and familiar soundscapes to create those of his own. There are 5 tracks, with features from SC Static, No-Name, Josh Mitchell, Aaron Michael Chamberlain, Anthony Vincent (of Ten Second Songs on Youtube), Fonte Cruise, Soul Khan, and C-Nature.

MC Bravado & C-Nature – “Dope Perspective” EP

MC Bravado is a rapper from New York, and he’s 1/5th of the hip hop group Cypher Junkies (along with Marxman, McNasty, C-Nature, and No Name). He describes a rocky struggle to his current path, “I struggled with alcohol and ran into a substantial amount of trouble because of it. I overcame said trouble to pursue a graduate degree, got my act together, and currently work as a high school English teacher in Baltimore.

While it also deterred his progression of his hip hop career, it didn’t stop him. He’s been working hard in the last couple of years. He dropped a couple of free projects, “The Darwin Files Vol. 1” (a preview of a 20+ song mixtape dropping next year) and “System Update” (a project with Marc Beatz). Then, earlier this year, he released his debut album, “The Illy-ad“, physically and digitally, with features from Copywrite, Mac Lethal, and Koncept. Check that out, if you haven’t yet.
