About Me
Monstah Black, is a self-shaped Messiah of the Funk, bringing his Virginia roots and
worldly explorations to bear on everything from class consciousness to gender politics.
His wildly multidimensional, multi-genre works of art employ the disciplines of musical
composition, choreography and theater in seamless harmony.

Monstah has always been inspired by all things progressive, radical, sexy and humorous.

Hey Mr. Monstah! I downloaded AP vol III a couple of days ago and I really like your song Rock Star. You rock! Very nice out-of-the-box, kick-ass rock n roll (and the audience screams for more).
