Biography

“&%$# you know about struggle?” Pharoahe Monch’s bold but rhetorical query opens the title track to his fourth collection of lyrical land mines, PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The line dares the listener to keep tumbling down the rabbit hole with the Queens, NY MC as he tackles familiar themes of gun violence, heartbreak and redemption but this time in the first ...

Editorial Reviews

With his highly-anticipated fourth solo-LP, P.T.S.D. - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Pharoahe Monch re-emerges with a new concept project which finds the ground breaking emcee tackling PTSD; a severe anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to any event that results in psychological trauma. Throughout the duration of the LP, Monch narrates as an independent artist weary from the war against the industry machine and through the stuggle of the black male experience in America.

It's colorful and tells a story.
J. Davis
His honesty in expressing what he was going through with his depression is admirable and the music is phenomenal.

Probably the most highly anticipated album for the genre this year, how pleasantly ironic that we all endeavor to suffer from `PTSD'! Lyrically, Monch sounds like he did back during `The Equinox', and the production perfects the formula used on his work from three-years ago. Easily his most commercially viable yet aesthetically satisfying project (sublimely balanced in content presentation; i.e. contrast "Time2" with "D.R.E.A.M."), this Pharoahes' reign is still very strong, with no signs of losing ground.

A very impressive and timely concept piece, the title is a condition borne as both badge and stigma for our day; Monch narrates his broken-down-rebuilt-stumble-and-stagger-off vision with not only consummate confidence, but also honesty of vulnerability. The placement of interludes/skits are perfect segues--he literally turned images of pain and struggle into a work of art, like lead into gold! How many so-called artists in our culture can actually do such a thing, to "use your confusion" so to speak? Not all music is alchemy. By far the only lyricist, of his era, I follow whose catalog has steadily increased in quality since the debut--seriously, the lone flaw with this offering is a danger of plateauing the next one. Running on octane from "Damage" and "Bad M.F." for around 18-months at least, I definitely held impossibly high expectations. There will no doubt be fans and newbies who are going to wax disappointedly at the lack of sustained beast-mode bravado--but they would also be missing the idea entirely. So be it, one can occasionally get what they have asked for; we are pulled into PM's head and taken through a refreshingly weird and real/real-ish experience.

I am a huge Pharoahe Monch fan but this album exceeded my expectations. His honesty in expressing what he was going through with his depression is admirable and the music is phenomenal. I am glad he is not considered mainstream because maybe his music would change - but I wish more people really listened to him. His lyricism is powerful and definitely is up there with Jay-z, Lupe and the best. If this was a tape, I'd probably wear it out and have to buy it again. Thank goodness for MP3!

Very important album with the issues surrounding mental health in the U.S. Production is superior. And of course Pharoahe Monch delivers witty rhymes and diverse flows throughout the album. Pharoahe Monch is one of those emcees that seems to stay under the radar for some reason (maybe too much substance). I almost forgot how much of a fan of his music I am.

The album is dope. Introspective and creative as usual. I'm still biased to "Desire" but this album is dope in a different way.

The legend returns. Amazing album. Time2 alone is worth the price of the album. Hard hitting lyrics and production. A well crafted album.

I see a lot of people are really feeling this album. I bought his last album W.A.R. and, while it had some great songs on it, it also had a lot of songs i just couldn't get into. PTSD, to me, was the same thing.

It has some great songs on it like "Jungle" & "Losing My Mind (feat. dEnAuN)". There are also some songs that have great verses, but the beats just not don't it for me (ie Rapid Eye Movement). I'm finding it hard to get into it and i've been playing it for a couple weeks now.

I think my main issue with Pharoahe Monch is his beat selection lately. I loved loved loved his "Internal Affairs" album. I never heard "Desire" which i will go do now. But Monch is always on point lyrically. He is one of my favorite em cees. I just would like to hear him on different production. So if you didn't really enjoy WAR 100% then you may want to just listen to this one first before purchasing. I don't regret buying because i love supporting someone like Monch. Plus there are some songs on here that i do enjoy a lot, just wish I enjoyed them all.

Depression, suicide, and the American illusion are some of the topics covered on this album of classic Pharoahe Monch rhymes with beats that fit his personality. It is bad ass and smart. The lyrics are intricate, complex, indelible and perfectly flowed. It has true meaning unlike a lot of projects put out these days by lesser emcees.

I've been listening to Pharoahe since the organized konfusion days and he just gets better with age. This project is right on time. After the W.A.R. (we are renegages) album this is the perfect followup! Its got crazy lyricism that you expect and the subject matter is so relevant to whats going on today without being preachy. The beats are hard hitting and perfect for working out or riding in your car and they lyrics make you tune in so you can listen to it even when you're just chilling around the house.

Black Thought's feature on the Rapid Eye Movement track is rediculous and shows how Mature Hip Hop sounds. This might be the best album of the year!
