Pharoahe Monch to Release ‘W.A.R.’ Album

Pharoahe MonchQueens, N.Y., legend Pharoahe Monch has announced that his forthcoming third solo album, ‘W.A.R. (We Are Renegades)’ will be released via Duck Down Records.

Pharoahe initially stated that the album would released on his own label, and distributed by SRC, who released his last record, ‘Desire.’ Instead, the Organized Konfusion MC/producer opted to go with indie Duck Down, claiming that they offered him more creative flexibility.

“I’m incredibly excited about my upcoming release W.A.R. (We Are Renegades) and my new partnership between my company W.A.R. Media, LLC, and Duck Down Music,” Pharoahe said. “This album deals with conflicts and resolutions of the spirit, the soul, the government, and the industry among other things.”

The record features several first-time collaborations, as well as a gang of familiar names.

“Thus far it features Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid, Jean Grae, Styles P, Phonte, Black Thought, with more to come,” Pharoahe revealed. “It also features production from M-Phazes, Marco Polo, Mike Low, Fatin, Lee Stone, Exile and others to be announced. I am working diligently to finish the work for a summer release and I am honored to join forces with the Duck Down family during their 15 year anniversary.”

‘W.A.R.’ is scheduled for release sometime this summer. Pharoahe is performing this Friday, March 19, at SXSW, then heading out for a 16-date Canadian tour with rap group Slaughterhouse.
