MONSTA Releases Cali Fobb EP


MEDIA RELEASE: Monday 22 April 2013


MONSTA Releases Cali Fobb EP

Hot on the heels of his US group The Regime releasing a double album series in March - The Last Dragon & Dragon Gang The Album (starring independent hip hop hero's Yukmouth & Techn9ne) - MONSTA is back with his latest EP Cali Fobb - the prequel to his much heralded concept album - Fobb Marley - due 4th quarter 2013.

The five track EP serves up a dose of what's to come later in the year with the catchy SWISS assisted Top 20 iTunes Hip Hop Single "Mixed Emotions", clocking in over 35,000 views in just 2 weeks.

With a history in rap music unmatched by his peers, the Long Beach native was one of the first Polynesian artists to mix Hip Hop with Reggae and deliver the GOLD certified single with J -Boog "This Is Love" in 2010. Cali Fobb is a glimpse into the life of a Polynesian artist growing up in California surrounded by the influences of rap, street life and reggae music.

To complement Cali Fobb’s already distinctive vibe, MONSTA enlisted the talents of world-renowned graffiti artist and illustrator Elliot Stewart Francis to design custom cover art, providing – in one image - a visual representation of the project. The artwork, hand in hand with MONSTA’s eye for detail has made a massive impact - with US rap peers applauding his efforts, generating hype and anticipation amongst his core Regime Fans.

MONSTA is gearing up to perform tracks from Cali Fobb across Australia in May, in support of a NZ Music Month Tour with Dawn Raid label mates BrownHill & Swiss.


MONSTA’s Cali Fobb EP is available on iTunes worldwide now!
