"Jealous Monk draws on second line beats and funky chops of Uptown New Orleans and blends them with the native art-form of South Bronx to create a combination of funk and hip-hop that is all their own. Made up of turntables, microphones, and one of the funkiest live bands in town, Jealous Monk has created a new brand of NOLA music that's all their own."
