When Eminem was declaring himself a “Rap God,” he described himself as rapping “like [he was] on his Pharoahe Monch grind.” So what does that make Monch?
Your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper, or worst nightmare, is back with the first single from his new project P.T.S.D., the aptly titled “Bad M.F.” Pharoahe’s commanding voice and peerless manipulation of syllables are on full display in each bar of the lively track. Monch doesn’t so much rap as bend each word to his whim, displaying full control of an endless arsenal of lyrics.
The conceptual album P.T.S.D. (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) is set to release on April 15, 2014.
