Pharoahe Monch â€“ formerly of Organized Konfusion and owner of what, in my opinion, is one of the most scintillating verses when he opens the 1994 track Stray Bullet â€“ is preparing to drop his third solo album, W.A.R. (We Are Renegades), which will be available on iTunes on July 27.
The first single, Shine â€“ featuring Mela Machinko with production by Diamond D. â€“ shows Pharoahe still on top of his game, a complex and thoughtful lyricist whose rhyme schemes continue to boggle my mind.
As an aside, if you’ve never heard Organized Konfusion’s Stress: The Extinction Agenda (off which the aforementioned Stray Bullet lives), you’re robbing yourself of a true classic.

have you heard any follow-up on a new O.K. album? At last year’s p4k Monch made mention of something in the works
Yes! I wasn’t aware that he had a new album coming out. I can’t wait to hear the whole thing.
