Pharoahe Monch is known as one of the best technical lyricists in hip-hop history and even 20 years in he is still at the top of his game. Pharoahe began his career in the 1990’s as a member of the legendary group Organized Konfusion and from then he went on to have a successful solo career. His upcoming solo album PTSD (acronym for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) is set to be released this April and Pharoahe paid a visit to the Sway In The Morning show in promotion of the album. From delving into the details regarding the project to reminiscing on earlier times of his career, Pharoahe made the discussion an interesting one that all fans of his will appreciate.

Because of his well-respected standing in hip-hop, Pharoahe is able to recruit the best emcees around for his projects. Pharoahe talked about his place in hip-hop today and talked about what inspires him to keep putting out material in this stage of his career. The passion for the craft is what drives Pharoahe as he could do without some of the uncreative trends that are inevitable in the industry nowadays.

Speaking of Pharoahe’s past, Sway couldn’t help but bring up the classic Wake Up Show anthem song that featured Monch as well as rappers such as Eminem, Kool G Rap, KRS One, RZA, Tech N9ne, and many more. While the conversation from beginning to end was certainly an interesting one, the best part about the interview was Pharoahe Monch’s live performances of classic tracks such as “Simon Says” to his newest song “Bad MF”. Pharoahe’s talent as an emcee is one of a kind and it makes sense why Eminem shouted him out on “Rap God”, which Pharoahe appreciatively described as a blessing. We will certainly be anticipating PTSD in a few months and will keep you guys updated with news regarding the project.
