Emerging rapper and producer, J. Monty releases his highly anticipated new single “100 Bars Pt. 4”(Essential Sound/Sony Music), accompanied by a music video. Written by Monty and produced by Vikaden for NARCOTICS Music Group, “100 Bars Pt. 4” hails four years since the rapper’s 6-minute viral track “100 Bars, Pt. 3”, which was a career highlight for Monty showcasing his powerful songwriting skills and versatility of his flow, giving him the motivation to continue making faith-based music. “100 Bars Pt. 4” marks the fifth single released by the Atlanta based artist on Essential Sound/Sony Music, and highlights Monty’s master storytelling and heartfelt authenticity.
“This song is a personal milestone for me in my career. Creating it with my producer Vikaden felt more like working on an EP. It’s three songs in one. It takes all of my greatest influences growing up as a student of Hip-Hop and merges them all into one record. Above all, this song gave me the opportunity to share my story in more depth than I have in any of the other installments from the “100 Bars” series,” shares Monty.
Last year, J. Monty released four singles “My God”, “21 Gold St.” featuring Koryn Hawthorne, “Mercy” featuring Sitovea and “Seven Nights. Each single,written by Monty and produced by Vikaden, showcases Monty’s ability to be a conscious lyricist delivering positive message of hope and faith. Besides music, Monty is also heavily involved in Victory Church ATL, which was founded by Pastor Phillip Anthony Mitchell in 2012. Combining both of their powerful experiences, Monty and Mitchell have been able to create a movement of hope that Monty calls nothing short of “explosive.”
