Moka Only 'Brutal' (album stream)
Ever-grinding West Coast rap machine Moka Only is back with what will apparently be the first of 12 new albums issued throughout 2016. The record is titled Brutal, and it's streaming now via Beautiful Records/Urbnet.

Brutal features 13 tunes, with de facto title track "It's Brutal" hitting hard with a vintage boom bap and horn squeal, and Moka doing his duty by "holding it down for the city of Vancouver."

Elsewhere, "Ya Gotta" is full of tipsy piano lines and references to old local boy band soulDecision, while the rugged-rhymin' "We Don't Do Normal" has the solo rapper teaming up briefly with Jon Rogers.

Brutal is streaming in full down below.
