Ink Made Me a Monster Mixtape

Back in October of ‘08, double-threat emcee/producer Lex One‘s first feature split Booth reviewers into two camps; though many appreciated Queen for what it was—a mellow, female-oriented record with plenty of class—others found it to be a little too low-key.  Well, the Queens to Florida-transplant must have been paying close attention to the reader feedback—on his second feature, he’s looking to prove himself as a musical risk-taker who can bring the Heat from bar one, and he’s enlisted the help of two underground up-and-comers for good measure.  Self-styled “gambling’ manBishop Brigante is the first to flow over Lex’s propulsive, guitar-driven instrumental, and Florida native Dynas switches things up with some unique vocal cadences on his second verse, but Lex One’s own vivid rhymes on the back end may be Heat‘s high point.  If this cut was hot enough to make you a convert, watch out for Lex’s Ink Made Me a Monster mixtape, coming soon.
