Monster [Iron Solomon]

Iron Solomon is a born and bred New York City rapper/producer who made his name in the battle circuits, stomping competition coast-to-coast and racking up millions of YouTube views along the way. Fresh off the heels of Redrum Radio, a Halloween inspired Mix CD released October 31st of last year, the MC is ready to release his debut album Monster on March 27th through Royal/3D. Set to appear on the record are established artists such as Talib Kweli, Jean Grae, Paul Wall, and Novel, as well as the legendary DMC of Run-DMC fame and more.

According to Solomon, the album will be a "personal offering that gives listeners a window into the life and mind of a kid growing up in New York City's schizophrenic landscape. Monster touches on everything from my personal come-up and the stress of pursuing one's dreams to the struggle of young relationships, family drama and youthful arrogance-plus a healthy dose of party and bullshit."
Monster is produced entirely by Iron Solomon and his in-house team of producers and musicians. The album will mesh trunk-rattling 808's with hard-hitting drums, soaring strings, lush synths and soulful horns, while remaining strongly rooted in the aggressive, witty lyricism Solomon is known for.
For more information on Iron Solomon visit his website at IronSolomon.com, Facebook Page, follow him on Twitter @IronSolomon, & subscribe to his YouTube Channel.
