Cousin Stizz Releases "MONDA," Reminds Us Why He's a Top Prospect

The DJBooth Top Prospect follows up last year's excellent "Suffolk County" with a new, 14-track freebie.

An emcee, Boston native, and one of our more recent Top Prospects selections ("The Hometown Hero"), Cousin Stizz has been putting on for his city and turning some major heads since releasing 2015's excellent Suffolk County project. Today, Stizz returns with MONDA, the highly anticipated follow-up to that introduction full of effortless streetwise raps and hard-hitting, hypnotic production. 

MONDA totals 14 original tracks and follows previously-released, Booth-acclaimed singles "Where I Came From," "500 Horses" and "Gain Green."

Warner Bros. Records signee Larry June is the tape's only guest feature, while production once again leans heavily on in-house assistance from names like Dumdrumz, Latrell James, Lil Rich, M. Ali, Puffy, Ted Boyd, Tee-WaTT, along with help from Cardo and Lakim.
