Pharoahe Monch is a emcee’s emcee he has lyrics and wit that is so inspirational to other emcees and fans alike but most in the mainstream that don’t know lyrics tend to overlook lyricism. But P.M is one that simply spits lyrics and has been since the early 90’s, but don’t call him old school because he can flow alongside any of the new crop of emcees that are currently capturing the public’s attention. Monch has always been experimental and willing to genre bend and that is just what he is did with his new mixtape “LOST IN TRANSLATION“.
Pharoahe released this collection of songs on Valentines Day 2015 but its not the cliche valentines love song collection thrown together at the last moment. This is a nice collection of songs that Pharoahe has collaborated with other artists to produce. All of the songs deal with relationships and love. P.M is spitting real life relationship type music that speaks to that everyday love that we all should have. This is not the typical “hey let me beat that pussy up” rap this is music I would like my daughters to listen to. Pharoahe has some very nice guests with him on this mixtape featured are appearances from Justin Timberlake, Jill Scott, Eric Roberson, Brandon Williams, Sergio Mendes, Will.I.Am, Robert Glasper, Sa Ra, and Mela Machinko. This is a project that I wish I had discovered on Valentines Day because my lady loves this shit.
