Respect Tha God – Work Ethic
Creative Juices Music presents Work Ethic. Respect Tha God, original member of the legendary rap group “The Perverted Monks” (founded by Jeru the Damaja and Afu-Ra). Respect is back again with his deep voice fit for story telling. Hints of street tails, lessons of fatherhood, experiences traveling the world. These are all themes displaying this well rounded emcee. Determined to capture the attention of everyone who truly has a profound appreciation and desire for HIP-HOP. This time around he steps to the head of the class to deliver “Work Ethic”.
After successfully releasing four albums, Afu-Ra presents: Perverted Monks, Life and Times of Russel Ballanger; Altered States; Respect 0.0, three singles, countless features, (Snowgoons, DJ Lord Jazz, White Shadow etc.) and over 100,000 mix CD’s including Street Heat Vol’s 1-6 all mixed by DJ PF Cuttin, 3rd Earth, Respect is back with “Work Ethic”! With the mantra FAMILY 1st at the helm, Respect chose carefully and added artists like Gorilla Nems, his brother D.Wayz and FABID member Mike Rone. Production followed the same formula with beats from CJM family IDE, DJ Black Panther and the Waxaholiks.
