Words by Jesse Serwer—
Craig “Leftside” Parkes (better known as Mr. Evil to some) has always been a little left of center with his music. Hence the name Leftside. Duh. Structurally, his new tune “Monkey Biznizz” is more of a trap/hip-hop track with an island accent than a dancehall tune. But, as usual, the deejay/producer/comedian does it his own way, building the track around the sampled sounds of a monkey. Wild.
Run “Monkey Biznizz” below, tell us what you think in the comments, and get familiar with both sides of Leftside’s split personality in our webisode with dancehall’s mad genius.
