Pharoahe Monch ft. Showtyme & DJ Boogie Blind - Clap (One Day)

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
M-Phazes
Album:
W.A.R. (We Are Renegades)

When legendary underground emcee Pharoahe Monch released War back in July, the first record we’d heard from the man in years, DJBooth Nation was overwhelmingly excited to hear new music….and then he disappeared once again. Whatever the reason for the hiatus, the important thing is that Pharoahe’s back today to drop off his new single Clap. On the beat M-Phazes unleashes the kind of soul sample meets head-nodding boom-bap production that Monch has been using to unleash his verbal aggression for years. Also featuring Showtyme providing an equally soulful chorus that blends perfectly and DJ Boogie Blind providing scratches and cuts all over the place, Pharoahe lyrically covers a variety of topics, from his struggles with cops to Mumia Abu-Jamal to, well, let’s just say he definitely doesn’t like the police. After far too long of an absence, it looks like hip-hop will finally have one of its strongest emcees back in the game when Pharoahe’s W.A.R. (We Are Renegades) drops in March. In the meantime, you know who you can count on to keep you clapping.
