BEAST 101! CLASS NOW IN SESSION!
MANAFEST VISION MEDIA LLC. teams up with KONG (aka KONGCRETE) of The Monsta Island Czars to re-release his long-awaited debut LP, the aptly-titled Shackles Off. The album features outstanding cinematic production courtesy of Blastah Beatz and Meccagodzilla. Lyrical devastation can be pinned on Ikon, 5th Element, along with Spiga, Megalon, MeccaGodZilla, K-SISE, Junclassic, Majesty, Stonez, Ikon, Mez and more.
KONG began his lyrical onslaught on MF DOOM‘s classic, Operation: DOOMSDAY and continued to astound listeners with blistering cadences and complex metaphors on 2003’s well-received Escape From Monsta Island album. Start to finish, “Shackles Off” is filled with sinister beats, distorted loops & erie keys as Kong takes listeners to school “BEAST 101” style!
