All Music Guide - John Bush
After appearances with OutKast and Slimm Calhoun, Killer Mike made his debut with a tight record boasting a few chart-worthy singles as well as his twisted take on Southern bounce. He keeps his friends close to him, recording at OutKast's Stankonia studios, hiring Dré for a few productions, and inviting Big Boi to rap over his irresistible hit single, "A.D.I.D.A.S."

The title track is Southern rap gone horrorcore, while "Creep Show" features a suitable guest, D-12's Bizarre.

A few weak tracks bring it down somewhat, but Monster has several tracks that rise up to the level of an OutKast LP.
