Overwhelmingly positive reviews followed Pharoahe Monch after the rapper released his long-anticipated sophomore album, Desire, in June of ‘07. Now, over ten months later, Broken Heart, an unreleased song recorded during the album’s studio sessions (which did not make the final track listing), has hit our DJ Booth. Although the song most likely didn’t make the final cut because of sampling issues (Mr. Porter‘s beat interpolates Three Dog Night‘s classic, Eli’s Coming), it showcases Monch’s ability to evoke real feelings; in this case, the mourning of a loved one who was lost to the streets. Despite Desire‘s poor record sales, expect Monch to continue recording innovative and groundbreaking hip-hop.
