Kurious Jorge
A Constipated Monkey
Amaigam Digital Records
Release Date: 09/18/2007

The re-release of Kurious Jorge's album A Constipated Monkey, takes you on a nostalgic journey back to the early 1990s, serving as a prelude to Kurious' sophomore album. Originally released in 1994, the album shows the earlier production styles of The Beatnuts and Pete Nice and takes on the laidback party beats of hip hop's past.

The album kicks off with "Spell It Wit A J (Yes, Yes Jorge)," introducing the dance party feeling of the album, while "Top Notch" sets the ground for Kurious' bluntness. Collaborating with Casual of The Hieroglyphics, "What's The Real" continues with the bluntness by defending "what's the real on skill" to anyone trying to doubt either emcees' ability to rock the mic.
