Pharoahe Monch: Desire
I keep meaning to mention this. Ed brought the new Pharoahe Monch album down during the Gion Matsuri and played it whilst I was schooling him at Winning Eleven. I 'obtained' the album and must deem it, "badass." Why he is not declared one of the greatest MCs ever is beyond me. The biggest surprise on the album is his cover of Public Enemy's "Welcome to the Terrordome." As I have declared this the greatest hip-hop song of all-time I would never have recommended that anyone cover it. However, Monch destroys it. He does a very credible Chuck D and then goes beyond it and owns the song. It is worth the whole album. Check it.
