Monopolize: a word with countless connotations for varying viewpoints. For Cabby, the title of his latest mixtape, Monopolize, strongly emphasizes the ability for urban youth to capitalize on all opportunities afforded and to create new avenues of escaping poverty. The seemingly negative stereotype that comes with the word monopolize turns positive in the eyes of this Denver-based rapper, as he uses the motivation of American capitalism to provide to hope to the hood and guidance to the ghetto. Proclaiming his victory and decisively adamant about never going broke, Cabby divulges his journey from the streets to the gated communities in Monopolize. An album that pays homage to all different areas of hip-hop music and culture, from the East to the West and back down to the South, Monopolize introduces Cabby’s delivery as distinctly Denver. His slick, laid-back attack asserts the conviction of Cabby’s craft, and his lyrics are true to self, embodying the experiences of his personal and professional life. Look no further than Cabby’s Monopolize for the hustler’s ambition, the ideals of Black American capitalism, and the motivation behind the urban community’s progressive movement.
