In case you missed the memo, Pharoahe Monch has formed a new outfit called Th1rt3en with legendary drummer Daru Jones and acclaimed guitarist Marcus Machado. The trio have now teamed with the legendary Cypress Hill for their debut single, “Fight.”
“The driving force behind ‘Fight’ is anger,” Monch said in a statement. “Anger at a never-ending saga that repeats itself over and over. My frustration with people not hearing the outcries, until the atrocities of the brutality have been recorded on smartphones. And still, the people allow their willful ignorance to support and protect America’s culpability. To me ‘Fight’ Is equally as much a vibe, as it is a protest record.”
“Fight” is the leadoff offering from Th1rt3en’s forthcoming debut project, A Magnificent Day for an Exorcism, slated to arrive January 22nd, 2021.
With a music video directed Tatjana Krstevski, “Fight” can be checked out below.
