Last month when industry legend Dame Dash unleashed a verbal beast and started calling out heavy hitters such as Kevin Hart, Lee Daniels, Funkmaster Flex and more, my ears perked up. Not for the same reasons as the rest of the plugged in hip hop world though. I began wondering about South Carolina’s Matt Monday (formerly known as Rigchus) and if Dame Dash’s “beefs” might affect Monday’s career in some type of way.
Back in April 2013, Charleston, SC native and resident Matt Monday famously partnered with Dame Dash and his international creative collective DD172. By the time Matt Monday had linked up with Dame Dash’s company, he’d already released two mixtapes and was making a name for himself throughout South Carolina plus beyond. As an aside, both of Monday’s previous projects landed on my annual end of year lists. Sweetgrass and Supras was on The Top Carolina Hip Hop Releases Of 2011 list and Black Cradles made The Top Carolina Hip Hop Releases Of 2012 list.
So with Dame Dash doing interviews on The Combat Jack Show and more, I pondered if it all would somehow eventually trickle down to Monday in some type of way. At this point, it’s not clear if it will. But still I wonder.
At any rate, Matt Monday just released “Ramadan”, the latest single from his upcoming EP, Filthy. The track is produced by Ryan Janiero. Million Dollar Dreamz go to videographer Bank! directed the video. Y’all can watch it after the jump!
