LTtheMonk: Everybody Wants Some

Fluent and fresh rhymes rest atop a sparse jazzy beat.

LTtheMonk: Everybody Wants Some

By Kerry Doole

 LTtheMonk - Everybody Wants Some (Sonic Unyon): This Hamilton-based, London (UK) born and bred rapper released three highly-praised albums prior to signing with top indie label/management team Sonic Unyon in 2019. A fourth full-length, On The Wall, comes out on Aug. 20, and this first single increases the anticipation.

A label press release explains that "Everybody Wants Some was inspired by Richard Linklater's 2016 movie of the same name, revolving around a freshman’s first days at an American college in 1980, as the freshman tries to focus on his baseball scholarship, yet is often distracted by relationships and partying. Subtracting baseball for music, LT details his first days at college in Hamilton in 2017, aiming to focus on his music and performing, yet from the first day of Orientation, romance is commanding his attention."


The cut features a fluent and forceful rhyming flow atop a sparse and jazz-tinged beat. Lyrics such as "My first day of higher learning, Everybody wants some higher purpose, I’m hustling" are showcased on the entertaining accompanying video, directed by Because Design Matters.

Word is that LTtheMonk is an engaging performer who uses a trio of jazz players, so let's hope we get the chance to witness that in the near future.
