Monsta Island Czars Return To Monsta Island Vol. 2

Making a 2nd volume of Return To Monsta Island was a must. While Sam nailed most of the standout cuts using our set parameters for Vol. 1, I knew there were plenty of others I already had in mind for Vol. 2. After putting together a loose playlist based on my selections and several that Echo Leader had chosen, I realized there was more than enough good material out there to keep most of the restrictions we had for Vol. 1. I decided to include songs featuring verses from outside friends and associates, but every song had to have at least one verse from an original Czar. The DOOM and Grimm restrictions would still be in place as well. At Echo Leader’s request, the DJ Fakts One Remix of MF Grimm’s “The Original” was included “cause it’s so damn dope.” Even though it was recorded before the Czars were formed, it’s a nice tribute to ‘the original’ Monsta Island Czar. All that and then some after the jump…

Echo Leader and I also noticed a lack of Kong on Vol. 1 and decided to make up for it on Vol. 2. There are six songs taken from Kong’s solo ventures and he’s featured on several more. I can assure you that this doesn’t sound like a Kong mixtape though. MF Grimm and Rodan’s solo albums Digital Tears and Theophany are also featured prominently. Spiega may not have released an official album, but he’s as talented as any MC in the collective, and it shows on his 8 features throughout this mix. While a few of the non-core Czars appear on Vol. 2, I decided to reserve the bulk of their work for Vol. 3 (if there is a Vol. 3). Once you’ve fully digested Vol. 1, grab Vol. 2 and get a better picture of how prolific M.I.C. truly was.
