U.K. singer Jacob Banks connects with rising Compton rapper Boogie for the remix to his “Monster 2.0” single. The powerful track is an anthem about staying strong in times of systematic challenges but with a twist, as Banks calls out that he’s become a monster in the process of fighting oppression. Boogie then delivers a reflective verse about how society has tested him, resulting in his transformation to a monster.
“Monster is about social conditioning, you can’t take away someone’s opportunity and then crucify them for the means they took to thrive. This song is for the everyday warrior, to remind you that you are G, you are the shit and protect your magic. It’s incredible to be able to work with someone I am actually a fan of. I feel privileged to have Boogie bless this joint.” – Banks via The Fader
