I mentioned to you all yesterday via Twitter that I’d had a great conversation with Pharoahe Monch. In addition to talking about his new album W.A.R. (We Are Renegades), we also got into a discussion of
- How Jean Grae impacted his approach to being an artist
- Where he stands on the use of the N-word
- And who the artist is that you’ll meet Saturday at Weeksville
The whole convo runs about 25 minutes, but I think there’s a lot of good stuff here. Besides, it’s always a pleasure to talk to optimists!
Anyway, check out Monch this Saturday as he kicks off the 2011 Weeksville Garden Party. Congolese-Belgian MC Baloji opens. It all starts at 6pm. And it’s FREE!
