Keep waiting for it to drop and it looks like its getting pushed back (again) until March. Being released on Duckdown I wouldn't expect that Monch is dealing with the more traditional label bullshit so what gives? I hope it doesn't go the way of The Sun Will Rise (which I still can't find ANYWHERE)

Can anyone shed some light on what's going on with it?

DuckDown is a label known for NOT jerkin niggas. From a recent Pharoahe interview it sounded like he was still workin on it, all good wit me. Besides that DuckDown got 3 HUGE albums to drop this year, WAR/Random Axe/Monumental, so they prolly jus lettin shit simmer before it's stewed to perfection... and marketing strategy.

I figured it wasn't the usual label bullshit, I mean he signed with Duckdown for a reason. The wait is killin me but I'd rather it be right than be rushed, good lookin out on the response. You happen to have a link to the interview you mentioned?

The first single Clap prod. by M-Phazes dropped recently as an mp3 but he premiered it in the UK a couple months back live on radio, here is the video footage:

Pharoahe (http://cratesofjr.blogspot.com/2010/12/download-pharoahe-monch-and-jean-grae.html)ís finally dropping his third solo album W.A.R. (http://cratesofjr.blogspot.com/2010/12/download-pharoahe-monch-and-jean-grae.html) in March, with the likes of Exile, Marco Polo, M-Phazes, Fatin, Diamond D, Mike Loe, Samiyam, Adam Deitch, Eric Krasno and Pharoahe Monch (http://ht.ly/3MQW0 ) producing tracks on the LP.

Pharoahe (http://ht.ly/3MQW0) was on tour about a month ago in Australia where he premiered a couple songs exclusively to the crowd from W.A.R. (http://ht.ly/3MQW0), check out the performance here: http://ht.ly/3MQW0

This was the first single, Mela Machinko on the hook and Diamond D on the rhythm.
