People of Manchester… this Thursday (13th Feburuary), Band On The Wall proudly present the Hip-Hop legend that is Pharoahe Monch Live in Manchester! Possibly one of the most underrated underground hip-hop artists of our time?
He first hit international fame with the smash hit ‘Simon Says’ back in 1999 however, because of the illegal use of the “Godzilla Theme Song” as a sample in ‘Simon Says’, the album has ceased to be produced but the smash hit continues to be played around the world over 15 years later! There are more side’s to Pharoahe Monch than his hit from 1999, his last album W.A.R (We Are Renegades) carries some really heavy lyrics over some solid beats reflecting his place at ‘war’ with the music industry and his newest album P.T.S.D (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), tackles the issue of gun violence in America and expresses his frustration on the matter. With his powerful lyrical content and rhythmic flows, Pharoahe Monch has always been considered one of the top MC’s in the game.
Support on the night comes from Manchester’s very own Ape Cult and the In The Loop crew.
