Moka Only Carrots and Eggs

Moka Only Carrots and Eggs
For what is his last album of the year, unless there is a surprise Martian X-mas planned, Moka Only proves he deserves the physical release granted him by Urbnet, with a gatefold package that features the simple, vibrant cover art seen on his recent album covers. Carrots and Eggs might just be Moka's most professional sounding album since Vermilion, and is comprised of his most experimental production, toughest beats and tightest flows. While there is a higher than average percentage of hard, slamming beats for Moka to rip over on this 23-track album, his mellow slow jams with smooth vocals are still represented, although they end up warped and weird, like the distorting high of cough syrup. Although Moka offers other self-produced, serious contenders like "Colours Don't Run," "Starfish" and "Insular," the most outstanding beat comes from Buck 65, who pays Moka back for his contributions to the Dirtbike trilogy with the beat for "I Mean Biznizz," a groovy glitch-hop beat dominated by a distorted bass that offers Moka a perfect opportunity to go all out. Containing some of his best work to date, Carrots and Eggs is a must-have for Moka fans and a great place to start for those looking to give the Vancouver MC a chance. (Urbnet)
