Song of the Day

Pharoahe Monch-W.A.R. (feat. Immortal Technique and Vernon Reid)

We Are Renegades (or W.A.R.) is the latest album released from the defiant MC, Pharoahe Monch. The album features a bunch of bangers, with Monch’s intricate and intelligent lyrics taking the front seat. You don’t see many people in today’s game with the complex lyrics and complex delivery (featuring Shakespearean like rhyme schemes that make you wonder why he didn’t become an english teacher) of Troy Jamerson. It’s refreshing listening to someone rap about resonant issues (such as the Cairo Protests and the misadventures many encounter in the less fortunate areas of the world).

The song, W.A.R., is one of my favorites on the CD. With features from underground legend Immortal Technique and number 66 on Rolling Stones all time greatest guitarists, Vernon Reid, the song gets you thinking about “limited freedom” towards certain groups of people and other ways the government is waging “a war against consciousness.” When Immortal Technique starts rapping I admit I get a little excited, after meeting him at Rock The Bells ’08 I could tell you he’s a real dude that’s not worried about pissing anybody off. Vernon Reid rips a solo towards the end of the song that will be stuck in your head for the rest of the day.

Listen to this song, and give the Queens MC some love, he’s been making quality music for almost 2 decades now.
