Realized I hadn't listened to this album in a while and broke it out for the afternoon. I honestly think, shitty sound quality aside, this is one of the best "street" records to come out this decade. And part of what makes it really singluar to me is the fact that Megalon, for better or worse, pretty much seemed to ignore anything outside of his own head when he made Penny. There is no pandering, no trends, no attempts at throwback-ism, no tempering of the fast-rap-stuff that is pretty unpopular as of the last 15 years...just a rapper taking you into their world. The album is original, cohesive and heartfelt. And of course, there is Rainblood...

word up, Tommy Gunn aka Megalon is my probably my favorite MC.
i wish he would put more stuff out.

You gotta cop his 2nd record THE NICKEL BAG, shit bangs too. but hes only on every other track, the rest are from his brother Raylong


and I doubt we will see another monsta island release. megalon isn't even in the group anymore, and he doesn't even use the name megalon anymore,,,
i dont think rodan is down with them anymore, neither is kamackeris aka kwite def......and i dont think x-ray is in the crew anymore either

i was told that maybe a year and a half ago they had like 30 songs recorded for a monsta island record, but grimm decided to scrap them all and start fresh, but nothings been put out as of yet

the group is mostly made up of newer younger members now that were not on the first LP


what i really wish would leak somehow is the album recorded PRIOR to escape from monsta island, called "the next 1000 years"


the closest you can hear to new shit is a couple monsta island member collabs is checking out the Kong record KONGCRETE, or the new junclassic record

I not only do not know how to upload albums but also probably should not for myriad other reasons though.

I have not heard anything about the original Czars putting out new shit as a group, but that Kong album was deserving of a lot more attention. It also has 2 pretty scathing Doom disses.

I thought this album was pretty patchy to be honest, but had a couple of bangers on it. 'Street Souljaz' was sick.

I had a lot of time for M.I.C. Thought they made some dope music. I still bump Megalon's "Peace to the Homeless" on the reg'.

I think "They dont make em like me no more", "No! Just Us", "Street Souljaz", "12 Disciplez", "What a Bum", "Feel It (Hit List)", "No Pain", "Rainblood", "Revalations", "Thugs Cry", "When I Go Out", and both tracks with Ray Long are all great. The mixes are not very good and not every beat is complete fire but basically as an album, this shit is really cohesive and intense to me. I have no problem listening to it all the way through but I can see why some people might have to skip around.

This is not a record I listen to every day or anything but when you put it on, its some powerful shit. "Thugs Cry" is a perfect example of this.

So yeah, I had a listen to this 'Nickle Bag' mixtape - thanks to House of Games. Fucking dope. Extremely grimy sounding. Sounds like it was recorded about 10 years ago. One of the best albums I listened to all year.
