C-Money is a trumpeter best known for his work with stoner-reggae outfit Slightly Stoopid. Backed by the Players Inc., his style can still be described as stoney, but skews less toward the sounds of Jamaica and more toward the R&B rhythms of the States. Lush arrangements feature strings and samples as well as melody mixed with rhymes. Dig the jam "Art and Civilization," a cynical, lyrical polemic lambasting the decline of modern music. It's style that represents a refreshing departure from Slidebar's normal rock offerings.
