"all they talk about is dope dope dope dope"
Posted August 02, 2011
Beautiful Monster is Thi'sl's metaphor for sin, comparable to Lecrae's Killa. He talks about how appealing it is yet will do nothing but kill in the end. Thi'sl was heavy into the drug game before Christ saved his life and he doesn't shy away from letting the world know. Many may miss out on some of the drug references if they've never lived the life. It would seem that those who still "trap", those who still use, and those still in the culture are Thi'sl's target audience with every album.
"Let it Knock", "Beautiful Monster", "Radio on Drugs", and "No Walls" would have to be my favorites. "Let it Knock" is one of those songs that you let down the windows, crank the music up to the max and ride out to. "Radio on Drugs" is a complaint to secular hip hop radio and artists about how the glorifying of drug use and drug selling saturates the air waves and ultimately the minds of our youth. He even says "When your songs go off, i feel i need to take a drug test."
For those who dont care to much for the hard rap then you can probably over-look this cd. This is hard Christian rap for those who can feel what he's talking about, or those who just love the sound.
