Pharoahe Monch - Broken Again
Haile Selassie Karate, Bad MF, R.E.M. and Get Down, the previously-featured singles off Pharoahe Monch‘s senior set, were more about lyrical pyrotechincs than heady concepts, but don’t get it twisted; the album sees the Organized Konfusion member tackling some heavy themes. Case in point: new single Broken Again, which describes the physical, mental and emotional hardships of an ex-heroin addict struggling to stay on the wagon. The Lion Share Music Group provides a tuneful backdrop for the rhymesayer’s empathetic bars, and aaronisnotcool directs the accompanying visuals. Feeling it? More awaits on the artist’s P.T.S.D. LP, out now via W.A.R. Media.
