The Head of Music for newyorkfm.digital said he thought the new single from ‘Nate the lion Monlux‘ was fantastic with a great world message and attitude. ‘Make The World a better place’ has a clear, precise and full of attitude rap with a unique spit and flow, dope beats with a majestic production, and a beautiful vocal from the very talented Mischa Renee. The incredible worldly track features a rap from ‘Opio’ from the legendary underground groups hieroglyphics / souls of mischief. So it’s been placed on the daily playlist at newyorkfm.digital and will be played 2-3 times a day in general rotation + as a daily powerplay at approx 1:30 PM eastern US time for a month at least.
Born June 21, 1986, in Northern California Nathaniel “Nate” Monlux suffered a challenging childhood. After surviving severe burns as an infant, Nate was raised by a loving foster family. His early years were marked with repeated cosmetic surgeries to repair his head and scalp. Those who knew Nate as a boy remember him as outgoing, energetic and charismatic with an energized spirit and a goofy smile.
Nate’s true passion is for music. His, musical influences range from rap legends to Reggae gods. It was Nate’s respect for Reggae music and Rastafarian culture that lead him to visit Jamaica many times. In 2015 Nate founded Gorilla Status Records to bring him closer to the music he loves.
Nates multifaceted persona draws influences from many sources. His love for Harley Davidson culture comes from his birth father. Nate spends much of his time on two wheels. His seemingly paradoxical connections with both urban culture and his respect for the earth and ecological concerns, have caused some to call him the “gangsta hippy”.
At the time of writing Nate still lives in the Northern California hills, at the end of a dirt road, behind a locked gate with his wife Elizabeth and their two sons.
