Today, December 23, 2016, indie rapper Ivy released his third solo mixtape, “Monkeys on a Porch.” An underrated rap jam, this mixtape has both club and workout vibes. Made with rich beats, cooly matched with real lyrics so easily delivered. It’s a solid mixtape, full of pitching potential for labels like Def Jam, Interscope, Atlantic, or Motown.
On the mixtape streaming platform DatPiff, “Monkeys on a Porch” has 12 tracks, more than 2k views, a five-star rating, and 250 streams.
Ivy’s flow is contemporary, and natural. He gets gutta on ‘Angles,’ a production by Ruthless Tracks, and ‘Beast From The East’ produced by NickeBeats. Ivy shows vocal versatility and appreciation for the most high in the Lil Mister production ‘Wat A Feeling,’ and a strong self-love in ‘I Like What I Like.’
All in all, “Monkeys on a Porch” is a well-balanced mixtape from a promising entertainer. The bass-heavy production doesn’t overpower, but supports the exciting new vocal.
