To define the significance behind Arsun's latest album title, "Life’s a Beautiful Monster"; one must first over stand that as an Emcee, he could care less about the status quo of mainstream music. This album highlights some of the key struggles he has faced with inner demons since moving from Maryland to Florida at the top of 2008. Life in itself can be a handful and no one album can truly capture everything that it brings us, but Arsun has attempted to pull you the listener closer into his world and how he use words to describe highs and lows. Arsun has heard countless Hip-Hop albums where the artist re-creates themselves and the end result is really not that believable. (editor’s note: BORING) Arsun can only be himself and he can only speak on experiences on this earth, nothing more, nothing less. With that being said, this is his 5th solo project and this time around, it's produced exclusively by Phase Logic. Just another one of his humble attempts to put some sincerity back into Hip-Hop...without the use of Auto-tune.
