I [John Public] caught up with Pharoahe Monch at the press day for the BK Hip-Hop festival for EOW, and he talked about being a part of this incredible event (that keeps getting better EVERY year, btw). He also talked about his touring experiences and bringing hip-hop overseas, as well as Eminem and Nas as influences in his writing process. He also reveals the possibility of doing a song with Nas. That would be fucking bonkers.
A-fuckin-men Mr. Public. I agree, whole heatedly on that last sentence. How incredibly ill would that be? DJ SAV*ONE also caught up with Monch and that interview is after the jump…
I [DJ SAV*ONE] had the pleasure of interviewing one of my favorite artists in hip-hop history, Pharoahe Monch, at the press event for Brooklyn Bodega’s Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival. I spoke to him about the Festival (its importance to the culture & to him personally), his original Demo, his new solo album, a new Organized Konfusion track, the current climate in hip-hop, artists he supports, and so much more. This is one of the most in-depth interviews I’ve conduced on camera & I’m real happy to share it with everyone. Please support Brooklyn Bodega’s Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, where Pharoahe will be performing June 20th alongside Styles P, Dead Prez, Grand Puba, DJ Premier, Marco Polo/Torae, Brown Bag AllStars, Tiye Phoenix & Many more.
