The cats from Ambrosia For Heads are the nicest bunch ever and I was stoked to contribute to their hustle, a really clever and macabre video (from Fat Beats) by none other than Masta Ace featuring the king of blistering bars, the fire starter himself, Pharoahe Monch. Read about it and check out the dope video HERE.
I spoke with Monch about records that inspired his own writing and added to his already uncanny acumen. Check it out on Ego Trip HERE.
One of the most revered MCs to ever do it, Monch’s dextrous verses are at times completely untouchable, intense, and leaves you amazed by the delivery. As the great music writer Dave Thompkins once wrote (and I’m completely paraphrasing, sorry Dave!) : “Monch raps like he’s in total control of every cell in his body.” Or something like that, but you get the point, and we couldn’t agree more.
