Description Edit

When preparing the OST for MONACO, I started to let my mind wander and (probably because I was surfing through YouTube at the time) I found myself imagining this music through the filter of some of my favorite artists. So, quite simply, I started emailing them. Suddenly I had 11 covers in my lap, covering a huuuugely wide gamut of styles and sensibilities.

I couldn't be happier with the results.

These 11 artists represent some of the very best in the world at what they do and what they've done with my music is an honor truly beyond words.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: the vast majority of proceeds of this album will be paid to the artist who contributed, all of whom spent a lot of time and personal resources in creating their tracks. Being that we're all indie, your support is deeply meaningful. Thank you!![1]

"Stick 'Em" Edit

According to a fan on Steam [2]

Shadows closing on me,
The pounding of my heart rings through the night.
I can feel my blood sizzling,
When the forbidden touches my fingertips.
I can’t resist.
Hey yo I feel like I’m in Italy,
Let’s get this heist going mang.
Hand me my goggles it’s time to go in,
Hey check,
Wall climb, it’s sublime, on abysmal,
Night since I grind for the diamonds and crystal.
Precise ain’t no time for a .9 or a pistol,
Pull a heist then we go recline at the Driscoll.
Fit in space tiny as a little fine pixel,
Night vision view never blind when I slip through
Stack going up and back, all up in black
As I crawl through the ceilings through your halls like a rat.
They say you got a cold, it’s a grade school attempt
Ain’t no problem I just pull the whole case through the vent.
Paid a visit earlier but they ain’t know the true intent
Got a photographic memory, went home and drew a print.
Uh huh
There ain’t a weak link no my whole cast tight,
I’m outta sight, passed right by your flashlight
With a mask, moving real fast through ya gaspipe
Like the tax man, do you wrong if you sass right.
[Chorus x2]
Stick ‘em, ha ah ha stick ‘em,
Welcome to Monaco, where what’s yours is mine
Stick ‘em ha ah ha stick ‘em,
Welcome to Monaco, where we on the grind.
Don’t call me a cat burglar ‘cause my style is more advanced,
You and your valuables they don’t stand a chance,
I steal it all leave the pets in the plants.
I’m a vet, so I dance through the laser beams
Cradling your prized possessions, your hired protection, has failed miserably, arrest out of the question.
Am I working alone or are there four of me?
And now I’m out before you can alert authorities.
Cause I can steal more with a strong team,
Get me the right reason to do the wrong things.
My position in this business as the locksmith,
Get any lock picked in no less than 5 ticks.
Can’t be around fools, dealing ‘cause it sound cool
These are the big leagues we after the crown jewels.
It ain’t encomical, the way we slidin’ through
But, these are the chronicles when you livin’ in Monaco.
[Chorus x2]
Stick ‘em, ha ah ha stick ‘em,
Welcome to Monaco, where what’s yours is mine
Stick ‘em ha ah ha stick ‘em,
Welcome to Monaco, where we on the grind.
Yo, moving like a mole in a hole or a ground hog
Go, get in stole, I don’t care how it sound, dog
Sliding on the floor, laying low, like a brown log
Out to get the dough I be creepin’ through the town fog.
Digging down deep, I be coming through the sewer neighbor
Going for the gusto, the mind of a curator.
A fool with obscure flavor, a jewel raider, who out to pull a pure caper, to procure paper
In and out then we stack up green, you heard of Ocean’s Eleven? They were my back-up team.
This is the Hillside gang meets Jack Mclean
Give us 37 seconds and we packed up clean, yeah
They say I really know how to pick ‘em
Got a black hat hacker who can shut down your systems
Quicker than a hiccup, cleaner down and waiting for the pick up
Way more efficient than a stick-up.
[Chorus x2]
Stick ‘em, ha ah ha stick ‘em,
Welcome to Monaco, where what’s yours is mine
Stick ‘em ha ah ha stick ‘em,
Welcome to Monaco, where we on the grind.
