“87th & Cottage Grove” was inspired by a former relationship. I called myself dating someone new (and long distance) but she didn’t tell me she was in a intimate relationship already; which rubbed me the wrong way. The details weren’t intense, but I was concerned more so with the principle of it all. Since then, I feel I’ve grown tremendously and wanted to reflect back on times that wounded my pride, ego; I wanted to shed light on my own character development. I no longer want to b tied down by past ills, so it’s like a 1-person therapy session. It’s like, in order to love another, I must grow from the past, however, now everyone else’s perspective is taken into account, not solely my own.

I recorded the song at WhisperMuzik Studios in Detroit, MI. I had the instrumental for over 2 years before my first attempt to write to it. The title of the song came from a conversation with my mother: I pulled up to Garrett’s (a popular popcorn restaurant) and she called me, asking where I was, and I responded “87th & Cottage Grove” as soon as I was finished writing the song and immediately thought to myself, “Yo, that’s it! That’s the title!

Monsta feat Young Dro "Spazzin"

Straight from Monsta himself: Born and raised in Detroit. I’ve been loving music ever since I can remember. I remember listening to Busta Rhymes and Mystikal and reciting their verses word for word and thinking “I can do that!” Busta and Mystikal were huge influences in the way that I honed my musical style, I was also heavily influenced by Master P and the innovation he brought to the way music was marketed. I draw inspiration from guys like Ice Cube, 50 Cent as well just based on how they were able to take the music and expand on it in so many ways that have influenced the culture. Ever since then I’ve had a passion for the rap game. My sound is definitely hip hop but I pride myself on not sounding like anyone else. I’ve been inspired by a lot of artists; from a lot of genres and eras. I believe that as my music is heard a reflection of everything will be present.

My biggest accomplishment outside of being a father would have to be my single Spazzin which feature Young Dro produced by AK for K & Square Music. Also, my other project “Eat Off The Ground” with Project Pat is yet another piece or work I’m extremely proud of. However, I believe this is my best work to date. My mixtape “Pressure” hosted by Fat Joe will be released around the new year. The features are ridiculous; Young Dro, Payroll Giovanni and Drey Skonie.
