Modern Monk – [Ishmael Raps]


I came across Ishmael Raps about 10 months ago when Vic Mensa tweeted out Ishmael’s debut video, “CAMO;” ever since then I have been a fan of the Rochester, NY based artist.  Keep in mind that this was all before Lyrical Lemonade was even an idea, since then, LL was launched and in it’s first month of launch we got up on an interview with Ishmael, a few months later we added him to the lineup of our first Lyrical Lemonade Showcase – isn’t it crazy what one single shout out can do?  I am extremely grateful that I came across Ishmael Raps, as he not only creates outstanding music, but he is also was one of the most authentic men I have ever met.  And just when you thought I couldn’t go on, guess what? The kid dropped a new video this week entitled, “Modern Munk,” not only was it obviously written by him, but it was also shot, directed, and edited by him.  Wow.  Congratulations to all this kid has accomplished thus far and also to what he will do in the future.  I’ll let the rhymes take it from here, stream the new vid above.
