Scott Picks: Pharoahe Monche “Damage”

Posted on September 27th, 2012

Twitter and Facebook have made it very easy for any artist to get their art seen by whoever is willing to look for it. The Odd Futures, Captain Murphys and Cool Kidz of the rap game understand how this works and use it to their advantage perfectly. But what about the older rappers, the mid 90’s poets who changed the game with their style? Sometimes they get left in the cold.

Enter Pharoahe Monche, the one half of Organized Konfusion rapper is back at it with Damage. Rapping over a beat produced by Lee Stone, King Pharoahe gives us those bars that seem to be lacking in the game. No hype, no viral lyric video, just beats and bars.

The track, the third of his bullet, trilogy has a sheds light on the often tragedies that occur in inner cities. He reminds the listener that bullets have no name on them. The track is dope and is a def must listen, even if it doesn’t come with the consistent and often tired ‘bells and whistles’.
