Da Night B4 X-Mas
That legendary mythological crew from the L.A. Underground, featuring Leviathan, Skarecrow, Mantra, Black Sun, and even Christbearer doing a cameo spot. CHAMBERMUSIK REVIEW When somebody buys an L.A. Underground record, we often end up with the typical West Coast beats and the usual G rhymes. Da Monstar Mob seems to refuse to be one of those groups. From the beginning of the album at it's creepy intro, "Nightmare B4 Xmas" seems to grab your attention and make you raise an eyebrow. The team of Skarecrow, Leviathan, Mantra and Black Sun definitely has a unique approach to rap. From the beginning, S.K.'s beats force all attention on the verses that seem to glide with the instrumentals. The first track that jumps out you is Track 2 "Strong Arm", which even features Christbearer of Northstar for a brief moment. Another excellent song is Track 9 "Thorn Lake" which features one of the most bizarre choruses in all of Hip-Hop. The only flaw is the lack of collaboration with the infamous Monstar Mob cohort Warcloud. For the most part, the album is excellent, and demonstrates some of the best rising stars in Hip-Hop.
