We’ve all heard similar tales of personal pain and street-life struggle that fill these songs by Denver’s Marcus Smith, but never with his level of intensity. In fact, on “Monster,” his powerful, super-raspy flow actually reaches a voice-cracking threshold once or twice, while a poignant sample of Jacob Banks’ “Monster” provides a soulful underscore. A jazzy horn intro sets up “Karma” to be a downbeat saga, but it’s actually an upbeat story about good karma, telling how a selfless saint of the neighborhood hits the jackpot with a lucky lottery ticket. M6 cements his identity as a higher-consciousness artist with the catchy, socio-political call-to-action, “Change Is In You.”
