    The latest in a string of superb releases from Charlotte’s Lord Jah-Monte Ogbon, Too Little, Too Late captures the rapper in top form once again. Sporting production from an ensemble cast (Mike Digi and Flls being two of the top performers), the album is a more relaxing listen than many of the rapper’s past works. The beats are far from one note however, as the sonic diversity on offer here is easily on par with any of his past releases. The raps are impeccable once again, with single ‘He For the Streets’ being a major highlight. This track’s title is an interesting play on words that captures the wider appeal of the Charlotte MC’s music eloquently. Although it holds within its tracklist the same brilliance as his other 2021 releases, I strongly feel that this is the beginning of a new era for Jah-Monte. He may still have plenty of time for naysayers, but with greater blessings in his life than ever it’s only right that the rapper celebrates them with more triumphant, luxurious lyrical content. He more than deserves his place in the rap hall of fame, and it’s clearer than ever on this release that he isn’t going anywhere but up from here. The album’s title adopts a double meaning in this sense, it is aimed not only at those who may have doubted Jah-Monte’s rise to the top, but also towards those who think he may one day fall from his position (it’s far ‘Too Late’ for that).

Hook - She’s on me like some camera time like when my time to shine coming When she told me she loved me she left my mind running Mind spinning are you the one for me or is my time coming? Verse 1 - a yo we connect, making memories like if I recollect Squad stepping out like sneaker fest, festival deep you pressed She tried to hit me on some pick up where we left off I’ll be best off, without you don’t even text call She told me let love until next fall, in the borough where the nets ball Kindly declined the lets work, you should just network In front of the expert display your best work Swallowing wine another bottle of your finest Send her home with it let it age though daddy timeless She want a diamond, but she deserve more Until you find out that your spot has been reserved for On some I don’t think we want the same thing in life But I don’t think you’re thinking right Hook - She’s on me like some camera time like when my time to shine coming When she told me she loved me she left my mind running Mind spinning are you the one for me or is my time coming?

Verse 1 - My gorgeous still wear the braids on the side Thought she forgave me we all aging in time, I’m not that patient with mine He caught a case we haven’t been to that state since Said it make sense, bank slips Jordans lace tips You were jealous now apologize goofy Im the prize she’s stuck to me, you glorify whats shown in movies Black owned like early sixties My girlie want to twirl a Bentley I feel her immensely She got money but she empty thats my type for real They offered me a license deal right to my clientele I did bad now she hate me pray I rot in hell You’re doing bad popping bills Hook - Kansas city, Chicago, Atlanta where you going? Said she there with out knowing oh you lit ma’ Kansas city, Chicago, Atlanta where you going? Said she there with out knowing Verse 2- My shorty golden like Helen with the gold teeth Slow feet, won’t get you nowhere we in this nose deep Im doing better than you ever expected Don’t check for me unless my bank account expecting collections I used to pass collection plates just hoping to get to heaven She want heaven on earth and want to pull up in a seven That’s my bitch what she wants she gets we out for it Status seeking I told her don’t be putting out for it Used to run my finger prints, now sign the fine print Lets talk the balance I was cursed, blessed, and blind with He came home like where the time went? Hook - Kansas city, Chicago, Atlanta where you going? Said she there with out knowing oh you lit ma’ Kansas city, Chicago, Atlanta where you going? Said she there with out knowing

Hook- She said her friends on the way, Mercedes Benz on the way Ma’ what you in for today cancel your plans in the way for me She said her friends on the way, Mercedes Benz on the way Ma’ what you in for today, cancel your plans in the way for me Verse 1 - three shots later, got her drunk trying to cop gators Thot waiters, thought she had it all but we got flavors gwap payers, want to place a bid know some top players Doing squats major for her somebody goals She feel it in her stomach like i’m throwing body blows See me out in cali paparazzi told the god to pose I supposed you have a better offer, ran through the roster Little black book Netflix and chill watch meet the fockers Tried to block us but a blessing came with it Play the game rig it, had to get it we couldn’t wig it Shits wicked Hook- She said her friends on the way, Mercedes Benz on the way Ma’ what you in for today cancel your plans in the way for me She said her friends on the way, Mercedes Benz on the way Ma’ what you in for today, cancel your plans in the way for me

Hook - uncork the red wine lets relax from rap I get stacks from vinyl wax its like a platinum plaque Can’t tie me down i’m for the streets she let them have me back Uncork the red wine lets relax from rap I get stacks from vinyl wax its like a platinum plaque Can’t tie me down I’m for the streets she left them have me back Verse 1 - Its such a shame I have to use white labels to keep my life stable Life changing dinner for one I’m at the wide table For me to settle down she has to hide labels Fresh out of Saks fifth avenue no Bally hoo Linked with my Chicago, Colorado and my Raleigh boo I hopped the train to Brooklyn welcomed open arms Dropping gems like broken charms, organic local farms She just want to know whats next from this the testament From genesis to exodus, eager for excellence Can’t believe she let me fall like when the season approached Like how my baby mother left me when I needed her most we had dreams of playing minor league now he run the streets Lead to two places, jail visitations or underneath Im not the one to speak to about pitches this not the best time Truly yours until the next time Hook - uncork the red wine lets relax from rap I get stacks from vinyl wax its like a platinum plaque Can’t tie me down i’m for the streets she let them have me back Uncork the red wine lets relax from rap I get stacks from vinyl wax its like a platinum plaque Can’t tie me down I’m for the streets she left them have me back Verse 2 - I just hopped the MTA she want the eta Lead the way, we can do this the easy way she often plead to stay Blessed with good tase I’m so graceful Grateful, she want to taste it with the grapefruit at the top a great view I’m pass sight seeing Told me give her one I gave her five reasons To my surprising guessed who pushed up on me I got good luck from it she had the hook up for me My bro said he want respect and not the bread I told the nigga fuck wrong with his head And a bitch shouldn’t be broke if she got legs Better hit the stroll but thats all you ma’ get ahead When you get on remember 10% Hook - uncork the red wine lets relax from rap I get stacks from vinyl wax its like a platinum plaque Can’t tie me down i’m for the streets she let them have me back Uncork the red wine lets relax from rap I get stacks from vinyl wax its like a platinum plaque Can’t tie me down I’m for the streets she left them have me back
