FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

The rapper and producer of hip hop known as MC Drunken Monk has released his latest LP record album, “Ghost Flow the LP.” The record is comprised of 10 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of half an hour. It has been released on the New Age Lions Music LLC record label. In addition to the considerable talents of MC Drunken Monk, “Ghost Flow the LP” also features the skills of such artists as Nittlz, TKO, and Clifford Brown III, as well as a surprise guest appearance by Drunken Monk's alter ego, J. Gray.

A no-frills, no-nonsense rap record with a heavy emphasis on wordplay and back beats, “Ghost Flow the LP” is one of the most intriguing independent hip-hop releases from the underground scene in recent months. While the “Parental Advisory Explicit Lyrics” sticker has been applied to each of the record's 10 tracks, this should not imply that MC Drunken Monk's album lacks class. On the contrary, it would be outside of Monk's character to yoke and restrain his extensive vocabulary.

“I don't believe in boundaries,” Monk writes, “and I always try to be true to my roots and who I am, even if it goes against the grain of society.”

MC Drunken Monk cites as main artistic influences such artists as Stevie Wonder, Digable Planets, Miles Davis, Guru, Robert Glasper, A Tribe Called Quest, and Whiz Khalifa. True to his individualistic personality, however, he uses these inspirations as sounding boards of artistic taste rather than guidelines. Monk's sonic style is entirely his own, inimitable, and leaves a lasting impression.

MC Drunken Monk has operated in the hip-hop, jazz, classical, and other music cultures of San Francisco, Berkeley, Montana, North Louisiana and New Orleans, where he became entrenched in the popular and influential spoken word underground of the 1990s. His background in these various genres continues to inform his hip-hop sound and tone. MC Drunken Monk has described his music as a hybrid of jazz, funk, and electronica with strong southern rap influences.

“Ghost Flow the LP” by MC Drunken Monk is available online worldwide beginning 3 January 2014.
