On Labor Day 2009, Monty G climbed onto a massive semi-truck with an arsenal of rumbling speakers to perform before a sea of 3 million hyped West Indians on Eastern Parkway (Brooklyn, Ny). Singing songs from his new album "World Domination," Monty set out to take the world by storm and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ over hardcore hip-hop beats and sweet island sounds.
Ask any Gospel Reggae fan to name some of their favorite artists and Ramont "Monty G" Green is sure to top the list. Born in the cultural melting pot of Miami, Fl. and raised in Caribbean city of Freeport, Bahamas, Monty G is no stranger to the Gospel Reggae arena. In 2002, he connected with Chistafari's record label, Lion of Zion Entertainment, to release "Revolution'" a truly revolutionary mixture of authentic dancehall, reggae, and hip-hop. Since then, Monty G has firmly established himself as one of the most fervent leaders in the Gospel Reggae movement, not only as a top-selling artist, but as a producer, engineer and head of his very ow record label, Lion of Judah Sounds. Now, once again, Lion of Zion Entertainment is proud to reconnect with Monty G and his Lion of Judah imprint to release "World Domination."
"World Domination," finds Monty G continuing to refine his sound, mixing hardcore hip-hop, upbeat pop hooks and authentic dancehall into his very own signature sound. It's clear that Monty is equally, comfortable alongside the likes of Kanye West or Lil Wayne, as he is Beenie Man or Damian Marley. What, however, is the key defining factor? Song after song, Monty G is able to communicate his mature Christian faith through similes, metaphors and lyrics that are easily understood by today's youth. Perhaps, that''s shy 'World Domination," is such a fitting title: Monty G;s hybrid hip-hop/reggae style is such that it transcends the reach if Gospel Reggae and can seamlessly cross over into the secular arena.
Indeed, his unique musical style is a fitting compliment to his personal ministry statement, which is derived from 1 Corinthians 9:22. Monty has sought to "Become all thing to all men," that he might save as many as possible through the power of the Holy Spirit. As he simply states, "My mission is to reach a secular generation and connect them to God through the sound and synergy of today's music. I have set our to five them what they like in music, but with a message of God's love ad purpose.... to help them find direction by His means. "World Domination," to me means reaching a world of music that has been thus far uncharted by Gospel Reggae."
