"All work and no play" has got to be the motto of recording artist Young Dread. His last feat included a rhyme spree of 30 songs recorded and released in 30 days. If you throw the mix and master into the time frame, one has to ask, when does this man sleep??
One of his latest releases is the 13 track project titled "Porch Monkey." At a time where everyone is so sensitive, Young Dread decided to come after it head on and no intentions of biting his tongue. With titles like Coon, Jungle Bunny, Cotton Picker and Jim Crow, many have batted a weary eye towards Dread's music. But this has raised an eyebrow in the conscious community of hip hop and sent many listeners over to Young Dreads music to see exactly where he is coming from...and where it is he is trying to go.
And what the listeners are finding is that Young Dread brings a grim reality to his art, that many choose to ignore for the distractions that are given, A truth so deep it can hurt, that hip hop's elite business men have bent over backwards to do away with. And that's what makes Dread's continuous releases anxiously awaited for.
When you add this harsh realism to art and combine it with a freakish ability to consistently release it, you can bet an industry built on ignorance is going to dread its forth coming. I don't know if that was a metaphoric intention on Young Dread's part with his choice of name....but I know this artist is a force to be reckened with.
With music now available on over 100 websites and apps, he is not hard to find. Tidal, Itunes, Google Play and more have extremely productive track listings from Young Dread. You can check out the "Porch Monkey" project on Spotify by clicking here: Porch Monkey
