In 1997 two Brown University students started a seminal label that brought lyrical legends like Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Company Flow and Pharoahe Monch to the masses and proved that great underground rap could sell records on a large scale.

Pharoahe Monch To Release “PTSD” With Guest Appearances From Black Thought, Talib Kweli, dEnAuN, The Stepkids, Vernon Reid & Production From Lee Stone, Marco Polo, Jesse West, The Lion Share & Quelle Chris
“PTSD” (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) will be released on 4-15-14
With his highly-anticipated fourth solo-LP, “PTSD” (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), Pharoahe Monch re-emerges with a new concept project which finds the ground-breaking emcee tackling PTSD; a severe anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to any event that results in psychological trauma. Throughout the duration of the LP, Monch narrates as an independent artist weary from the war against the industry machine and through the struggle of the black male experience in America.
Pharoahe Monch has been at the forefront of lyrical innovation for two-decades now. Not only is he one of Hip-Hop’s preeminent lyricists, crafting intricate rhyme schemes and intelligent raps, but he is also an incisive political and social commentator, using Hip-Hop as a platform for political engagement.
‘Rapid Eye Movement’ featuring Black Thought of the Roots Crew, is a lyrical barrage worthy of these two titans, as Monch and Black Thought get lucid for a 4-minute exhibition of pure lyricism. “Rapid Eye Movement” is produced by Marco Polo with scratches by DJ Revolution.
You can now pre-order Pharoahe Monch’s “P.T.S.D.” at iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/ptsd-post-traumatic-stress/id791461203
