Irie-1 is back with his 3rd solo album titled Here Comes The Monster EP. He returns after a long hiatus while getting his life on track. He shares his struggle in his lyrics and shows that one can overcome adversity with dedication and focus. The project features instruments by Zero and bold cuts by King Who. The production is raw, edgy boom bap serving up bars with substance.
I have dealt with mental issues myself, and I can relate wholeheartedly to trying cope. I applaud Irie 1 for sharing intimate details in an effort to inspire others. His talent as a producer and lyricist shines through on this project. I hope the message will motivate others.
Irie-1 took a moment to share a comment about his project:
Decided to get back to what my passion is. Feel extremely blessed to be here and this album is a reflection of my change. I watched lots of people defeated by their addictions and mental illness. I’m hoping others can learn these things aren’t the end of life.
