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 ...

I use to be a huge fan of Hip-Hop in my youth but as I got older I found less and less in common with what it was becoming. I found great solace in more contemporary music and Jazz. That being said every once in a while a Hip-Hop album comes out that is intelligent and has production value that appeals to me as an adult. I love this record more than his prior efforts, he much like me has grown older and matured. Monch has always been and intelligent lyricist and a cut above today's commercial rappers but this time thru his maturation shows in his choice of production. This album has more live instrumentation ala The Roots and less of the sampling which has become the norm in rap music. In conclusion this record will be enjoyed by those of us who grew up with Hip-Hop but find that Hip-Hop did not grow up with us and the adults we became... 5 Stars.

Pharoahe Monch has grasped the most elusive embodiment of hip-hop music: the crafting of a perfect album. The display of skill, material, production, and timing puts this long-awaited piece into another category altogether--and that is saying quite a lot! Our genres' roster over the previous three-years, at least, has seen some truly amazing and encouraging offerings from vets, budding talents, and rookies, many of which have damn-near reinvigorated the approach of us fellow artists. Even with positing that, I have to admit there is something very different about W.A.R.--something unlike not only Monch's priors, but also very different from the overwhelming majority of lyrical-aesthetician contributions: I am calling this a flawless victory. Such high praise is usually avoided, as a rule--except for where it applies.

Some of the other reviewers have pointed out that production is a slight liability on this one, considering the titular implications. We disagree sharply! Nothing is more boring than an album full of beats, however 'hard', all sounding exactly the same, without range or creativity! Pharoahe actually has soul, folks--and that is why production goes through the moods experienced on W.A.R. (i.e., 'Black Hand Side'). Here we have an album where the emcee has balanced all of the necessary elements: confidence and strength, subtlety and nuance, melody and message, persona and depth, pathos and inspiration, vision and timing, `self'-expression and community/audience involvement (guests and supporters). Are those not attributes of what we hope to find in new releases? I can name a number of recent projects that seem to have a connection to each other, a common-thread running through them; yet W.A.R.

Put down the lil wayne and the wack khalifa and support this man... a true lyricist who knows how to flip a verse. this is what should be getting all the publicity instead of that cookie cutter garbage on the radio.

It's been a long and strange ride these last 20 years for Pharoahe Monch. As a teenager, he made his debut in 1991 as part of the duo Organized Konfusion. They released three albums in their short period- their self titled "Organized Konfusion", their best record "Stress: The Extinction Agenda" and their criminally overlooked swan song, 1997's "The Equinox". After he and his partner Prince Po parted ways in 1998, Pharoahe embarked on a solo career for the second decade of his career. He signed with the indie hip hop label Rawkus Records and released his 1999 solo debut "Internal Affairs", which contained the huge hit "Simon Says". Things started to get off to a good start, until a few years later when Rawkus entered into a distribution deal with MCA Records while the label was on its last legs. As a result, both labels were phased out in early 2003 and a few Rawkus artists were asked to go to MCA's sister label Geffen Records. While his labelmates Mos Def and Talib Kweli accepted the move to Geffen, Pharoahe refused due to the label's questionable history with hip hop. As a result, his debut remained out of print. Over the next few years, he was wooed by other labels that really wanted him, such as Dr. Dre's Aftermath Entertainment as well as Sean "P. Diddy" Combs' Bad Boy Entertainment. He refused deals from both of them on the grounds of artistic freedom, though Pharoahe wrote "The Future" on P. Diddy's 2006 album "Press Play". He signed with Loud Records' founder Steve Rifkind's SRC label, but at that point, Rifkind's focus shifted from underground hip hop to rhythmic urban pop (David Banner, Akon and Melanie Fiona). His long overdue sophomore album "Desire" came and went with little promotion- so much so that no one even knew it was released.Read more ›

Duckdown has been amazingly consistant since since 2005 & this album doesn't dissapoint. Pharoahe delivers an album thats thought provoking, innovative (in terms of rhyme schemes) & full of political commentary. The beats help showcase his skills & in my humble opinion this makes up for the lukewarm "Desire" album a few years ago, in which producer Black Milk ruined a few years ago. Just as good as Saigon's "Greatest Story Never Told" & will be in rotation for the next year for me. Pharoahe cemented his legacy with this one.
