Tacoma's Crazy Monk performing

This Saturday get down to Le Voyeur in Olympia where ya can catch Tacoma's Crazy Monk performing a set - along with 2 Hip-Hop instrumental acts, and 2 other M.C.'s; one of them being Xero Ours from Olympia who I also recommend. Crazy Monk is a one-of-a-kind underground, slightly nerdcorish, activist/revolutionary/metaphysicist rhymer. He travels up and down the Westcoast, rocking underground Hip-Hop shows, political rallies, Occupy Campsites, and house parties. He's sort of a modern Hip-Hop Hobo - spitting his rhymes and whirling his dervish in militant coffee-houses all-around the Westcoast.

                  Monk just released his first full-length album - which he's been touring on the latter part of the summer and will continue to through the early fall. It's titled "27th Letter of the Alphabet". The cover is hand-drawn and it along with the inner album-artwork features Monk in a meditative stance, looking part B-Boy and part Yogi. Monk's rhymes are a hodge-podge of ancient-knowledge, third-eye visions, and a plenty of chanting down Babylon. The production on the album is what shines through though. It features tracks by DJ Alkaline, Graves 33, & Smear. It's worth listening to for the production alone - not to mention the guest verses from Orko Elohim, Man Danno, Revels, Graves 33, Blae Lue, Sooth, Clydewell Aseity, Summon, and Dulok Shaman push the album over the edge.
