Summary: It’s almost Friday. Just Push! #throwbackThursday
About Artist: Is an old school rapper from New York, most famous for his song Simon Says. Pharoahe Monch’s first album, as a solo artist, was a classic “Internal Affairs” (1999). But it wasn’t until eight years later in 2008 that he released his second album.
About Song: This song is from that second album “Desire”. I got to see Pharoahe Monch perform at Rock the Bells in 2007 and I was blown away by his performance of the title track “Desire”. I also really love the remake of Welcome to the Terrordome that’s on the album.
Favorite Part: I like the soul elements of course. I love the horns my Tower of Power, and MeLa Machinko just kills it on the vocals. Pharoahe Monch’s powerful and always political raps are also great.
Also gotta love the George W shoutout at 2:05.
