Pharoahe Monch Exclusive Interview
Think today’s mainstream hip-hop scene leaves a little something to be desired? You’re not alone. A veteran of the game who’s honed his famously multilayered rhyme style over more than 20 years in the game, Organized Konfusion alum Pharoahe Monch has had it up to here with the game’s lack of substance, and on his highly-anticipated third solo set the Queens native declares W.A.R. on the forces maintaining the musical status quo. Hailed by the Booth’s Nathan S as “...nothing but quality,” Monch’s W.A.R. (We Are Renegades) LP dropped March 22 and is available now via Duck Down Records.
In this exclusive video interview, Pharoahe Monch sits down with DJBoothTV‘s Jacques Morel to discuss the concept behind his latest project, the set’s formidable production lineup and his thoughts on the problem of police brutality.View more from:
