If I Go First, is the perfect song, with the perfect production. Monk raps about taking the people around us for granted. We often forget that tomorrow isn’t promised, and forget to tell those we care for how we feel. I call this the perfect song, aside from the fact that it’s on a SMASH DAVID production, but because we all need this reminder, to be more appreciative of the ones we love, and not take them for granted. If I Go First, is by far my favorite Monk track thus far. He’s known for spitting that real rap, shedding light and hope to the crazy world we live in. Monk spits with a flow different from his usual, gets personal telling us his story. Monk gives the streets hope with his music, using his platform and amazing talent and past situations to assist and uplift others. Rumor has it that Monk should be releasing a mixtape very soon.
