by Various Artists
Released: Mar 2011
Label: W.A.R. Media / Duck Down Music
Pharoahe Monch may never be "The Hitman," to quote a track from his excellent album W.A.R. (We Are Renegades). But every album he makes is a major event among serious hip-hop fans because the Queens lyricist is a true master of ceremonies: He's a vocalist who can both growl meaningfully alongside a gospel choir, mimic Juvenile's cadences on "Let My People Go," pepper socio-political commentary on tracks such as "Calculated Amalgamation" and "Haile Selassie Karate," and hang with hard rock thugs like Styles P and Royce Da 5'9". If only Flo Rida fans knew what they were missing.
